THE DETAILS

Combine rafting big summer flows down rapids that are over a football field long, an ultra-comfortable ‘safari style’ backcountry camp, and options for mountain biking, running, inflatable kayaking, and fly fishing. The Upper Klamath cuts a steep wilderness canyon through the Cascades of Southern Oregon and is one of the finest and most exciting class-IV+ rivers in the West. This is a uniquely action packed and comfortable 3 day luxury CULINARY camping adventure.

“THERE IS NO OTHER TRIP LIKE IT IN THE UNITED STATES”

The Upper Klamath has a high desert, old west character. THE canyon IT FLOWS THROUGH IS dotted with Native American and frontier relics, rapid names COME straight out of aN OLD western, and a ride along an old stage coach track winds through remote pine forests and beautiful meadows.

THE ITINERARY: DAY ONE

The river has three different sections and begins with a fun class-III warm-up. This first stretch makes the Upper Klamath a recommended rafting trip for first-timers or experts in good health. There is plenty of opportunity to learn the finer points of river running before dropping into section two where the canyon constricts, the river drops out of sight, and things completely take off. Get ready for one of the most action-packed sections of river anywhere. Starting with a long class-IV+ rapid called “Caldera”, the river rarely slows for the next seven miles and is packed with exciting and fun class IV and IV+ drops. Buried in the middle of this stretch is the half-mile long “Hell’s Corner” rapid.

In the afternoon we will pull into our unique and comfortable Upper Klamath Bush Camp. The camp is a safari-style riverside base camp located deep in the canyon and only accessible by raft. Set among ponderosa pine are shaded walk-in tents with cots and private decks, a shaded eating area, showers, hammocks, and the ‘UK Bar’. The late afternoon can be spent hiking, fly-fishing, playing games in the sun, having a drink at the bar or by the river, or just hanging out in a hammock. In the evening GUESTS WILL BE TREATED TO A MULTI-COURSE, LOCALLY-SOURCED, SEASONAL, COCKTAIL-BEER-WINE PAIRED FEAST PREPARED BY THE WILDER PROJECTS TEAM.

THE ITINERARY: DAY TWO

For those interested day two can be a big day. AFTER A HEARTY BRUNCH PREPARED BY THE WILDER PROJECTS TEAM, There is a morning option for a six mile mountain bike ride or trail run along a rolling track through pine forests, past old west ruins, and with AMAZING views down into the canyon. For those who don’t want to BIKE OR HIKE there is an option for a short (but bumpy) drive WHICH ALSO ENDS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE class IV+ rafting section again. GUESTS RUN THIS SECTION AGAIN BACK TO CAMP. IN THE EVENING FESTIVITIES BEGIN AGAIN, WITH CRAFT COCKTAILS AND AN INSTAGRAM-WORTHY FEAST.

THE ITINERARY: DAY THREE

On day THREE there is an afternoon option to inflatable kayak on the more moderate third section of the river TO THE TAKE-OUT. Navigating your own inflatable kayak is a unique and very exciting way to experience the river aS KAYAKS add a whole new dimension and sense of adventure. You are free to explore in a small and maneuverable craft, feel the rapids up close and personal, and ultimately test your new river running skills.

“EXCEPT FOR TH RAFTING PORTIONS, ALL THE MULTI-SPORT ACTIVITIES ARE OPTIONAL, ALLOWING YOU TO CHOOSE YOUR OWN PATH TO ADVENTURE”

The Upper Klamath is one of our original ‘backyard’ rivers, and one we know like an old friend. Join MOMENTUM RIVER EXPEDITIONS & WILDER PROJECTS for three days of big whitewater, A LITERAL BOATLOAD of activity options, a WILD AND beautiful canyon, and UNFORGETTABLE MEALS AND HOSPITALITY at THE HAND-BUILT safari style backcountry base camp.

PLEASE NOTE:

This trip can be very active or more relaxed – it’s up to you! It is perfect for experienced and first time paddlers (and for those who find regular camping not to be their cup of tea). However all guests need to be in reasonable physical condition for the whitewater rafting section and for a short but steep 150 yard hike on day two. If you have any questions or concerns please call or an email MOMENTUM RIVER EXPEDITIONS.
