Best Trips in the West

We’re a professional family of guides dedicated to leading trips down some of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Our most popular trips are Oregon’s Rogue River and The Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, but we also offer a few special trips to places we love and know you will too.

We specialize in family trips, focused on amazing adventures, healthy food, and creating good memories

Whether you’re a first-time camper or a seasoned river veteran, our guides and staff are there to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime. From falling asleep beneath the stars at night to enjoying the refreshing splash of rapids on a hot day, we’ll take care of the details and leave you free to explore.
