Just returned from a four night /five day trip down the Salmon and Snake Rivers with Paul and John from Winding Waters. While the fishing was slow, the service and food was some of the best I have experienced on a guided trip. From selecting sites, to setting up camp and preparing great meals as well as camp set ups,... More

We loved the Winding Waters River folks ~ we had nothing but fun and they really know how to make sure that everyone is comfortable, well-fed and mostly having a blast in the water. We all felt safe and their daily routines were never rushed and we never felt like we were missing anything. We would recommend these guys HIGHLY... More

We just returned from a 3-day 2-night rafting trip with our family of five (children ages 7, 9, and 11). We tend to be picky travelers but I can honestly say there was not one improvement suggestion that I could make. Everything was perfect, including the food, planning, the guides...everything. We rarely take vacations that are 100% relaxing but this... More

We took our 8 year old on his first ever river trip and so we wanted something easy - not much white water, more of a float, and that is what we got. Penny brought her daughter along which was perfect - my son and her daughter had a blast together. The river was spectacular, the trip to the put... More

Just finished my 3rd river rafting trip with this company. This one was with 3 generations of our family and everyone had a ball. The kayaks and water guns make it fun all day long. Paul and his staff take such good care of us that we will keep coming back.

Just spent 5 nights, 6 days with WWRE on the Snake River through Hell's Canyon (+ a day of guided fishing on the Wallowa). These guys are great! Friendly & professional staff, great food, good gear, etc. By whatever metric you want to measure these guys, they nailed it. I'm looking forward to going on a trip with them again... More

Spent 5 nights and 6 days on the Grand Ronde river with Winding Waters. I cannot say enough about the wisdom/experience/humor/good nature of the guides and their staff. The service was impeccable and their conscientiousness about safety is appreciated. Food was fabulous. I will be back on the river next summer with Winding Waters.

We went with a group of 15 folks and floated Hell's Canyon this Fall--awesome time! Rapids are fun-scary, but you're in great hands with Winding Waters guides. Slept under the stars, and the crew had hot coffee and real cream in the morning when we first got up. They cooked great food using lots of local fresh ingredients-practically like gourmet... More

Imagine floating down a historic and beautiful river through the deepest canyon in the USA. You are surrounded by soaring mountain peaks, wildlife abounds along the shoreline, and the river changes from glassy smooth to class 3 and class 4 rapids around each corner. You hike to old homesteads and Native American pictographs. Then you stop for lunch or dinner... More
