This was our first river rafting trip, and it was amazing. The scenery was beautiful, in spite of the fact that it rained a couple of days. In addition to the rafts, the company provided inflatable kayaks and a paddle board that one could use for a more personal experience. Our trip lasted four days, but a few people got... More

My kids and I had one of the best adventures and trips together we have ever had. The staff at Winding Waters are wonderful, professional, friendly, and experienced. I went with my sister and her kids and my 75 year old mother. There were exciting rapids and camping experiences and yet enough comfort to make the trip enjoyable and fun!... More

I have run rivers in Maine, Norway, and Africa and made more than 8 trips with Winding Waters on the Salmon and Snake Rivers. They are the best by any measure .... safe trips conducted by experienced, friendly guides serving superb food. Each trip on high and low CFS has been a marvelous adventure.

This trip was amazing from beginning to end. We were on the three day trip on the Snake through Hells Canyon, and were sad to leave the rest of the group continuing down the river for an extra couple of days. Next time, we're doing the 5 day for sure. Before we arrived, Penny was extremely helpful with any information... More

We did the three day trip down Snake River - family of 3 joining my brothers' family of 3 - making 4 adults and 2 kids (age 14 and 12). The kids loved it - rafting, paddle boarding, kayaking. The guides were excellent and so was the food. Would definitely recommend.

I cannot possible rave enough about our family's experience with WWRE. Paul, Penny and the entire crew were fabulous. We felt safe, well taken care of, comfortable and had a lot of fun adventures. The breakfasts, lunches and dinners were so fantastic. Gourmet camping would be the best description. I would love to go back with a large group of... More

Paul and his crew were the best. All friendly and attentive. Ready to deal with any question or request. Short of Beer, have a Rainier, they brought extra. They even got the fish to bite!

We are experienced rafters, have our own raft, but decided to go with Winding Waters for our first ever guided trip, because of trepidation over navigating some major rapids on the Snake solo, and because of the unique opportunity to go with a music in wild places trip with Laura Veirs. And phew are we ever so glad we did!... More

Everything was top-notch - the guides were knowledgable and friendly; they were wonderful with children and adults alike. They identified birds, told us about the rock formation, played games and, of course, knew the river so well! The food was delicious and the scenery, breathtaking. Having incredible singer-songwriter musicians along created a sense of place and a sense of family... More
