River Trips

Full Day — 8:45 am to 3:00-3:30 pm, includes river lunch

Join RIO on a full day trip to explore 14 miles of the beautiful Rogue River, from Hog Creek to Grave Creek. Our “early-bird” schedule allows us to be on the water before major crowds, offering a true “Wild and Scenic” experience. Be prepared to unplug and unwind for the day, as our unique environment takes us to a place where cell-phones and internet don’t have service and we are allowed to focus on the real and now! As soon as our feet leave the shore, we descend into the historic Hellgate Canyon, followed by a set of splash-tastic Class II rapids. Winding through the rugged and complex canyon landscape, the Rogue presents a diverse background of flora and fauna as we float serenely, or experience the thrill of exciting whitewater. Our journey pauses for our Rafter’s lunch break. During COVID-19, we are supporting our own and eating local, sourcing our delicious lunches from Babe’s Bakery. All sandwiches and dessert items are prepared fresh and with love. (*Gluten free, vegetarian, and other options by request.)  After lunch, we head downstream for more fantastic views and fun Class I-III whitewater. Grave Creek boat landing is where our journey will come to an end, leaving you thirsting for more of the Rogue experience!

  • Professionally guided service, on a paddle raft OR scenic row frame raft (Your Choice) down 14 miles of the beautiful Rogue River. (inflatable kayaks included upon booking request)

Half Day 8:45 am to 11:30 am/12 noon

Join RIO on the morning excursion, traveling 7 miles from Hog Creek to Galice down the beautiful Rogue River. Start the morning with a descent into the scenic Hellgate Canyon, followed by a set of splash-tastic Class II rapids. Winding through the rugged and complex canyon landscape, the Rogue presents a diverse background of flora and fauna as we float serenely, or experience the thrill of exciting whitewater. Two, Class II rapids bring our journey to an end as we approach the legendary Galice Resort, where your half day adventure comes to a close, leaving you thirsty for more! This is a great trip for groups/individuals that only have a half day to see what the magical Rogue has to offer.
