Being my first trip on the Rogue, I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality of not only the scenery, but our guides as well. My three night, four day excursion was a wonderful mix of white knuckle rapids, and peaceful down time. The guides stressed safety, and exhibited it well while holding on to that sense of adventure.

My daughter (9yrs) and I took a 4 day rafting trip with Northwest Rafting Company in August. I feel guilty that I have not written this review before now because we had such a wonderful time. The guides (led by Nate) were cheerful, positive and helpful and made us feel very safe on the water. Northwest clearly hires guides who... More

I've gone down the Rouge River 3 times in the last 4 years with Northwest Rafting Co. The guides are amazing. Always fun while making safety a priority. All abilities are welcome and will have an experience of a lifetime. The food was amazing plus beer and mead (Brews with Views trip). I could not think of anything missing. Will... More

Once again we had a fantastic 5 day river trip, well-fed, safe, and fun, with Northwest rafting (and Sundance kayak for those of us wanting kayak instruction). The guides are a delight and the river itself is spectacular. We got in hikes, saw bear and bald eagle, had a blast bombing through the rapids. JR, Laurie, Charlie, Kitty, Tobias were... More

We just returned from 5 days rafting on the Rogue River trough the wild and scenic section with NWRC's Bluegrass music trip including Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum. It was a wonderful experience. The guides were top notch. They managed 19 of us with varying degrees of river experience to give each of us an experience to remember. Some of... More

Like the other reviewers, I took the 5 Day Class III Rowing School (June 2014) on the Rogue River and couldn't believe how well it turned out. The instruction, food, equipment, and people (both guides and guests) were first-rate. JR, Ryan, Dustin, Cole and Teal worked hard as hosts and guides and created a very fun, informal and informative experience.... More

I just returned from an amazing five days of Class III Rowing School on the Rogue River with Northwest Rafting. The River was beautiful and the rafting a blast. What made the trip so amazing were the guides. JR, Michael, Chrissy, Dustin and Peter were brilliant teachers, master chefs, great hosts for the river and just all around "good" people.... More

I attended a private 2 day class on March 7th and 8th, 2014. I have been rowing a drift boat for several years but wanted some formal class III and IV whitewater raft training. Zach is a detailed but patient instructor. He makes sure you get it. The focus on whitewater safety alone is worth taking the class. I took... More

We've just returned from another trip with Northwest Rafting--this time with a group of 12 friends and family on Oregon's Rogue River. I did not think it possible that this year's trip could match last year's--but it exceeded every expectation in every possible way. I am absolutely impossible to please but this team does it time and again. They are... More
