Whitewater rafting on Oregon's Wild & Scenic Rivers offers breathtaking scenery, abundant forests and waterfalls, and a full range of mild to expert trips. The area is rich in Western history with old cabins, mines, and long-deserted Indian settlements dotting many runs.
"When it comes to river rafting, there’s nothing like Southern Oregon,” says Pete Wallstrom, owner of Momentum River Expeditions. “In the spring, one of the craziest rides is on the Illinois River. In the summer, we have the Rogue River. It’s everything people imagine a wilderness trip would be.”
Then there’s the Upper Klamath River, another of Pete’s favorites. “It’s one of the best stretches of summer whitewater in the country,” he says. “It’s a little less well known and that's the reason we go there.”
