Upper Klamath River Trips

Thrill seekers, this is for you!!!

We will transport you high into Southern Oregon's gorgeous Siskiyou mountains. We serve a mouthwatering continental breakfast consisting of fresh baked pastries, fruit, juice and coffee on the way to the Upper Klamath River.
When we reach the launch site we custom fit your safety gear, which consists of Coast Guard approved PFD's, helmets, rash guards to replace cotton shirts (these are used in Maui by the local surfers to keep them warm), and wetsuits if needed.
Just before you board the raft and begin your journey we share all pertinent safety instructions with you. Seventeen miles of wet and wild whitewater excitement await you!
The first 5 miles of the trip is Class 1-3. This is the section of the Upper Klamath River that we use to hone and fine tune your paddling skills in preparation for the 7 mile Upper Klamath River Canyon.
We stop to scout the first Class 4+ rapid then we challenge Upper Caldera, Lower Caldera, Branding Iron, Satan's Gate, Hells Corner, Dragons Tooth, Ol'Bushwacker and many other powerful rapids, 63 in all. This section of whitewater is Class 1-4+ rapids.
After running the last Class 4 rapid, Stateline Falls, you will be served a delicious gourmet lunch and we will celebrate your triumph over the rapids. We are proud to serve you the very best lunch served on the Upper Klamath River. Ask the guides! Ask our guests! After lunch we enjoy a scenic float through the last five miles of the trip, Class 1-2 whitewater rapids. This is an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine and scenery or jump in the river and float through some of the riffles in your life jacket (PFD).
