Where are we going today?

The AMAZING rivers of Oregon are waiting for families to take them on with Whitewater Adventures! There are so many outdoor treasures to be had, and so many amazing things to be seen.

Whitewater Adventures have rafting trips for every interest that you might have, and of course every level of ability! Don't you worry if you've never rafted before, or are a really cool pro, they have something for you!

What's also great, is that the duration of trips vary, so you can raft for as little as a quick half day thriller, or immerse yourself in a very cool 5 day adventure - right through the heart of wild Oregon!

For those little rafters over 6 years old, there are some AMAZING rivers to embark on! You can enjoy the McKenzie River, or see the sights of the John Day River. With 6 rivers to choose from across the state, you might see uncover things about this state that you never knew!

If you take on the John Day River, you will challenge yourself to 4 or 5 day trips through some of the finest river canyons in the state. The North Umpqua River (say that quickly five times!) has one or two day trips, but be prepared - it has more rapids per mile than any other river in Oregon!

Deschutes River rafting is the best known river in Oregon, and gives you cool swimming and lots of sunny days!

Each river has something different, so it's all about picking what's best for you. But each river will certainly give you an experience that you won't be forgetting in a very long time! Rafting fun for everyone!

    Would have been more fun if we could have played soley with the group we came with. Instead we had to play against the local militia. Getting shot from the elbow down is not considered a 'kill' shot and your are still eligible to play, but I self eliminated myself in just about every game because once that thing pops you in the hand, you've had enough. If you are inexperienced, go with a large group of people of equal skill and then play among yourself because you will have way more fun.

    We went rafting last weekend during a dam release and had a terrific time. The scenery was beautiful. The guides were all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We were surprised by how many rafts were put in with our group and this was the first time we were on a raft trip where the guides didn't ride in the raft, but for the level of the rapids and the speed of the water flow it worked out fine. Most rafts got stuck on a rock at least once, giving us all a chance to laugh and figure out how to wiggle out of our situation, with the guides encouraging...Read More

    First time rafting in PA. Had lots of rain prior so the river was deep. Guides were super cool. Can't wait to do it again. Prices in their gift shop were very reasonable.

    First time whitewater rafting yesterday and it was a good experience! Yes, some people got stuck in the back because of rocks but one of the kayakers ended up riding with them to help out. Perhaps mothers with small children should have been integrated beter with everyone else, but it didn't ruin the experience.. It just gave us more time to swim and have water fights.

    The crew works hard.. We saw them all day trying to keep us on the right path and then afterwards they were helping out with the bbq and cleanup.

    Be aware that if you're in rush,...Read More

Be aware that if you're in rush, which you shouldn't be.. Your trip probably won't get back until after 6pm. Unless no boats get stuck, then I imagine it'll be much earlier.

Looking forward to going back and hoping for even bigger rapids :)
