Additional Information

This 3-, 4- or 5-day Rogue River whitewater rafting journey down the 40 miles of this scenic waterway in southwestern Oregon, takes you through the storied Siskiyou Mountains, explored for centuries by Indians, trappers and gold prospectors. What's more, the warm, gently surging waters of the Rogue River combine with "one-of-a-kind" rapids, which provide plenty of whitewater excitement - without an extreme element. Rogue River rapids such as Blossom Bar and Rainey Falls are sure to inspire a generous dose of adrenaline interspersed with lots of calm float time in between them. For the more adventurous, our inflatable kayaks provide an up-close and personal encounter with the rapids of the Rogue.

Oregon's Rogue River winds its way through one of the most beautiful pine-forested canyons in North America and gained federal Wild & Scenic wilderness designation in 1968. This OARS adventure vacation in Oregon shows off this river's best features as it flows from its headwaters high in the Cascades near Crater Lake National Park towards the incomparable Oregon coast through the Rogue River National Forest. A great family rafting tour that works perfectly into trips to the state's untouched ocean beaches and nearby national parks.

There will be a pre-trip meeting at 6:00 PM, the evening before the trip begins, at the Galice Resort. In the morning, we'll take a short shuttle drive to the Rogue River where we board rafts or inflatable kayaks for a few days of scenic whitewater adventure. Warm up rapids lead to Rainey Falls and a bit further downriver a possible side hike to Whiskey Creek Cabin. Camp on a sandy beach alongside the Rogue River and enjoy a tantalizing meal and some time for relaxation. Inflatable kayaks are put to use as the most adventurous take control of their own crafts in exciting rapids like Tyee and Wildcat. Hike to Kelsey Creek, go swimming or exploring or fish for trout in a deep clear pool. Spot myriad wildlife, including turtles, deer, bear, otter, osprey, great blue heron and bald eagles while floating through the breathtaking scenery that surrounds the Rogue. Hike up lush Dulog Creek and play under a refreshing double waterfall, visit historic Rogue River Ranch. Raft through Mule Creek Canyon with steep basalt sides towering above and invigorating rapids such as the swirling Coffeepot. Scout and run the notorious Blossom Bar Rapid. A short float after lunch delivers us to our take-out point at Foster Bar for a scenic drive back to Galice and the conclusion of our trip.
