Six of us rafted, kayaked and hiked 40 miles from Graves Creek trail head. Our guides were Zach and Tim whose thoroughness, knowledge, patience and good humor kept us safe and all the excitement we could handle! It was a great combination of enjoying the white water, the views from the trail and beautiful camping spots. I highly recommend NWRT!

Been looking forward to a Middle Fork trip for a long time and it met all expectations! Great food, great staff, top notch equipment & the attention to detail impeccable! From the favorite brownies, to nightly games, to dress up night & the obstacle course, evenings were something to look forward to. AND, the rafting/kayaking/duckies/SUP options made the trip fun....

We looked forward to a Middle Fork rafting trip for years. Certainly made the right decision to go with Northwest. The guides attention to detail was perfect with many challenges easily accomplished. Hot springs, food, wildlife viewing and fishing were only a few of the highlights. There was no doubt Northwest staff truly cared each person on the trip had... More

A group of us decided to go on a 5 night 6 day rafting trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The whole team at Northwest Rafting Company was great and easy to work with! Everything was very organized from the flights in to the back country, to the bus ride out. Our guides; Jed, Audrey, Brodie, and... More

I booked this trip in conjunction with American Whitewater. We were 24 hard shell kayakers, duckie kayakers, and raft riders with 5 guides and rafts from Northwest Rafting. An excellent time was had by all of us. The guides showed the kayakers the lines through the rapids and kept us safe on the water. Off the water is where the... More

Wanting to do something outside my box, I registered for a 4 day Rogue River trip with Northwest Rafting Company from May 25-29th on the Wild and Scenic Rogue River. The entire trip exceeded my expectations from the scenery, rapids, guides, food, and the other members of the group. Prior to this trip, I had only completed a day rafting... More

Rafting the Owyhee has been on our bucket list for years. We finally were able to run it with Northwest Rafting company last week, and it was everything we had hoped for. Zach and his crew (shout out to Audrey, Nate, and Brody, best guides ever) went above and beyond to provide us with a safe, exciting, fun, and very... More

I have taken both the class III and the class IV rowing schools with NWRC. Both were exceptional. I recommend the class III school for folks with some familiarity with white water rafting and rowing. The class IV school builds on this and is perfect for folks with some class III rowing experience. The class IV school involves smaller, swifter... More
