Lower Owyhee River Rafting
Rafting on the Lower Owyhee River is likely our absolute favorite river trip that we run! The scenery is truly mesmerizing and at times hard to believe that this canyon is in Oregon and not the desert Southwest.
Hot Springs, amazing side-hikes, pure tranquility, historical and native American petroglyphs will all welcome the Owyhee River adventurer.
The Lower section of the Owyhee River features some of the most unique, varied, and beautiful landscapes of the entire river system. It is said that each mile you travel down this section of the Owyhee you travel back 100,000 years in geological time.
