Rafting on Oregon’s Illinois River….

We have a new spring trip that we are very excited about! This April we will start running 4-day wilderness trips on the Illinois River in Southern Oregon. Although it has been seen by very few the Wild and Scenic Illinois River is considered by some to be the best wilderness rafting trip in the country. Few rivers can match its combination of extreme isolation, solitude, beauty, and whitewater. We are excited and honored to offer trips down this spectacular Pacific Northwest River.
The Illinois has a lower elevation snow pack so the rafting season is in April and early May (before the water drops too low). The trips are small with a high guide to guest ratio. We have three dates for this spring – you can read more about the trip below.!
If you have any questions about the Illinois give us a call or an email – the trips are coming up soon!

The Illinois 4-Day – Class 4+ (V) – One of the great wilderness river journeys in the country – some say the best.Great for experienced and adventurous beginners in good health – Ages 16+. Offered spring only: April to mid June
