North Umpqua River Rafting

NORTH UMPQUA RIVER

Tucked near the base of Crater Lake, the North Umpqua River certainly has a lot to offer when it comes to whitewater action.  With multiple options for a variety of runs, from consistent class II+ rapids to spaced out bigger class III+ rapids, we think the North Umpqua river is some of the finest whitewater in the state.

With day trips offered on the upper section you will paddle your way through the waves and twisting turns on rapids like Weird Wier, Eiffle Tower and Pinball.  Overnight options include 2-3 day trips that allow you to experience the lower portion of the river and give time to practice your hand on some of the world famous fly fishing holes.

With sunny warm weather, world famous fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking trails and hot springs nearby the Umpqua is worth a visit just for itself.

  • Variety of rapids makes for an exciting ride, especially in the spring.
  • Multitude of options for trip lengths and river sections.
  • Scenic river canyon with lots of other activities to do and close to Crater Lake.

 

2020 SEASON

Thank you for your interest in Oregon River Experiences. We hope you are doing well and have been safe through this ordeal.  It is with a heavy heart we have made the difficult decision to suspend our 2020 season operations due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 virus. We did not do this lightly, but for the safety and concern of you, our clients, family, and friends.

We think of a river trip as a way to escape into something different from your everyday life, and with the precautions required and changes to ensure your safety, we felt that the special river experience was not going to be the same. 

We will be operating in 2021 stronger than ever and will have the multiday schedule available by July 1st, 2020.  We appreciate your support during these times and wish you a safe and fun-filled summer this year.

In the meantime, if you have questions regarding a trip with us for the 2021 season or need a recommendation for this season, please contact us at info@oregonriver.com (on the website, will be link directly into contact form).  If you want to call us at 503-563-1500 feel free, but we might be outside enjoying our summer.  Say hello if you see us out and about by your favorite river.

See you on the water in 2021,

The Oregon River Experiences Team
