Just back from the 5 day Bluegrass on Whitewater Rogue River trip with NWRC and this company provides pro backcountry river guidance perfection in every aspect! Even the interaction and communication before and after the trip was perfectly thorough and always timely. Zach and the guides are more than expert river professionals... they have working knowledge and experience about all aspects of equipment and the rivers they guide as well as the beautiful ecosystems the rivers are within. Their ability to coordinate as a unified team as well as provide individual support for specific guests is amazing and they make it enjoyable for everyone. The meals during the trip were freshly prepared and always perfectly cooked. These guides can put a full on river kitchen in place and be serving delicious appetizers and gourmet backcountry meals with amazing ease and fun. And to top it all off professional musicians Laurie Lewis and Brandon Godman provided wonderful Bluegrass music entertainment every night of the trip. Anyone interested in pursuing a guided multi day backcountry river trip should book with NWRC and then plan to enjoy the best river guide-ance experience of a lifetime!

Join us for our annual “Bluegrass on Whitewater” trip featuring Laurie Lewis on the famous Middle Fork of the Salmon River. We have yet to find a better combination than rafting down the river by day and listening to Laurie’s music by night.

Wonderful Trip

★★★★★
This is the only type of active vacation I have found that offers time away from technology, cooking, noise, machines, and other sources of daily stress. Here we float, paddle, hike, sleep outside sunset to sunrise, listen to music, muse, watch, learn from others, listen and appreciate the wildness and sacredness of these rivers and the wildlife we must honor and protect.
