Voted Best of the Gorge in 2012 and 2013

Best of the Gorge 2012 and 2013Our main office is in downtown Hood River which means we are lucky enough to spend the winter rafting and kayaking the the many rivers of the Columbia Gorge. When the weather warms up in the spring and summer months we love to share these rivers with others.

We specialize in small group trips and we’ll pick the right rafting trip to meet your group’s needs. Check out the menu of rivers below and give us a call to put together a custom trip for your group.

The Hood River

Difficulty: Class III
Season: April - Early June

The Hood River makes a great full or half day trip for paddlers of all abilities and ages. It has plenty of Class II rapids with a few Class IIIs thrown in to make it exciting! You may even get a glimpse of Mount Hood while you’re on the river. Our trip ends in town just a few blocks from wine tasting, microbreweries, and great restaurants.

West Fork of the Hood River

Difficulty: Class IV+
Season: April - Early June

The West Fork is perhaps the best rafting trip in the Columbia Gorge. It flows through two narrow basalt canyons full of steep, challenging rapids. The tricky part with the West Fork is catching it when the flows are in the optimal range. We only run the West Fork a handful of times each year.
