We had a fun, exciting raft adventure guided through the Class 3,4 and 5 rapids of the Lochsa River by Miles. He was knowledgeable and fun! Will do it again with him guiding us. Really can't say enough.

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your adventure, and that you've decided to join us on the Rogue! What a great choice for the family. Yes, one of our international trips, like the Galapagos, should be the perfect next step in your experience!
