Whitewater rafting trips in Oregon

The Rogue & Illinois: two stunning sister rivers with distinct personalities

Southern Oregon has two of the west’s most stunningly beautiful rivers,
the Scenic (and Wild) Rogue and the Wild (and Scenic) Illinois.

Whitewater rafting on the Rogue River in OregonOur Rogue River rafting trips are wonderful family vacations with warm water and incredible wildlife in a canyon that is sublimely beautiful with lush green hillsides and crystal clear creeks; plus, as a bonus, there are numerous fun and lively rapids.

Whitewater rafting on the Illinois River in OregonThe Illinois River, on the other hand, is the Wild one; where the rapids tend to overshadow the scenery, (but just barely). Numerous Class IV rapids, many without names, are spread throughout a spectacular canyon with bedrock gorges, thickly forested hillsides and waterfalls around every bend.

Appropriately, both rivers are protected in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers system.
