Summer is here and we hope everyone is enjoying the long days and sunshine!
Many of you are probably aware that the lack of snow in the west this winter will make for some low water rafting throughout much of the west coast. However we are excited to say that this is definitely not the case for the Upper and Lower Klamath! Full reservoirs and new regulations meant to protect the Salmon fisheries means that the Klamath River will have more then enough water all summer. The Upper Klamath will have the same “big turbine” release as last year which means big water (even more then in years past) and an overall whitewater run that will be second to none in the west – fourteen churning miles including 9 of back-to-back class 4 and 4+ rapids! The Lower Klamath will have perfect flows for family rafting trips and high adventure inflatable kayaking (which is really getting popular this year).
We had a ton of interest this spring in our winter trips to Chile. Our 2008 dates are set (see below) and many of you who expressed interest will soon be getting a DVD and trip info in the mail. If you did not talk to us about it and are interested give us a call or an email.
To everyone who joined us this spring THANK YOU! We had a short spring season because of the low snow pack, but the trips were amazing and they set the framework for some really cool 2008 trip options (i.e. Clear Creek). If you want to see some great pictures from this spring click here.
Below there is more info on the Upper Klamath, Lower K and Chile. Many of our summer trips are filling fast so give us a call!
Have a great summer and hopefully we will see you soon!

The Upper Klamath
The Upper Klamath River is definitely the most exciting summer class-IV trip in the West. Join us and see why this run’s fame and popularity grows every year.
For info, visit our Upper Klamath page.
Lower Klamath Trips
2 to 4 days in remote and beautiful Northern California. It is the perfect introduction to rafting, river travel, and camping. With activities ranging from fireside stories and games to days playing in the warm water, the Lower Klamath is a wonderful place to share an adventure with your family.
Lower Klamath Inflatable Kayak Trip
The Lower K is a beautiful down river trip (meaning all of our gear is in rafts and each night we camp along sandy beaches) and its rapids, while mild in rafts, are perfect and exciting for inflatable kayaks. We love inflatable kayaking and guests that joined us last year have been raving about them. It’s just you, your kayak, your recently learned skills, rapids at “face” level, and guides leading the way giving you tips, encouragement, and a helping hand when needed. This trip is a great chance to learn a new skill and see an amazing stretch of river.
