Serenade Rafting Trip Reviews


I just came off the Rogue River after 4 days on the Serenade trip. To some this may be a memorable trip due to the rain, and did it rain! For me it will be a memory of the wonder of people pulling together with great attitudes and giving the guests 4 days of great food, great music and much joy and laughter. Yes we came off the river each day a little wet, but we were always greeted with a friendly face, a warming fire under large tarps and stories to tell of the beauty and wonder of the Rogue River. The great attitude was infectious and the guides, cooks and musicians brought the best out in everyone. Another great Northwest Rafting Company trip. What a crew!!!What an adventure!!!

We had the most amazing time with Daniel, EMVP, EMACK, Kaela, and Austin. The food was amazing, the music was amazing, the company was great, the river was amazing. My daughter said " that was the best thing I have done in my 10 years of being alive". we will definitely be returning next year. Serenade and NW rafting made our 3 days so incredibly special! You must experience NW Rafting and Serenade for yourself. Our family listens to their music and cooks their food every week at home in hopes of feeling a little bit of the magic we all had together on the river.

One of the best trips!

It was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken in all of our travels! Leaving was hard because it was so awesome. The Rogue was amazing, as we thought it would be, but the music, food, and new friends were what stood out the most because it was so far beyond our expectations.

Cutting edge sensory experience

The NWRC- Serenade trip is a whitewater rafting trip with such trustworthy guides paired with exquisite cuisine and the kind of singer song writer musical magic that calls forth the beauty of the wild river inside us all. This moveable serenade creates a sense of belonging and courage as we cheer each other on over each rapid. Plus, lots of individual service! ( They made me a personal cup of brewed decaf every morning after the coffee was served.)What a team! What a trip!

This is an amazing trip. Unforgettable.

We were lucky enough to be on NW’s Serenade trip last year. The food by Jared and crew was over the top....from fresh oysters to mouthwatering paella. Kaela and Austin have the Serenade gig down. Jenner and Austin provided the musical entertainment. Many in my family had never done a river trip or camped overnight. The NW crew made us laugh and the entire experience was amazing. We enjoyed the river in oarboats, paddle rafts and inflatable kayaks. Our family will talk about this adventure for years to come.

A River, a HUGE pot and a Banjo

NWRC's Serenade Rafting Trip gets it right in so many ways. First, the Rogue - wild, peaceful, and picturesque. Then the food - oysters on the half shell, Kobe Beef, smokey vegetables, cast iron crock desserts - all amazing at a restaurant but several notches above when served riverside. Add a dash of Austin and Jenner on the banjo and guitar by the fire or floating down the river and life is really looking good. All of this is wrapped in a seamless and flawlessly operated rafting company with the most pleasant and skilled guides to be met on a river anywhere. Kaela and Austin (Serenade), Jaret and Joe (Tournant), Jenner Fox (musician, guide and baby carrot advocate) Susan Fox (Bonus Yoga) and NWRC Crew - you pulled together a brilliant maiden Serenade voyage - can't wait for the next one. - Andre and Jodi K - Middleburg, VA
