What Do These Oregon River Rafting Businesses All Have In Common?

Love for rivers and countless memories on Oregon rivers! Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of hearing innumerable stories of how our river trips have positively influenced the lives of local and global families, friends, groups, and organizations. We’d like to acknowledge and thank the local businesses that continue to create memories with us on the river and share our deep Oregon river rafting love! Here are a few of the Oregon based teams that have recently whitewater rafted with us. Check out their services and products below to see if their offerings and locations align with your next Oregon river and road trip.

Solstice Pizza

Our rafting guests often ask for local food and dining recommendations and we often refer them to Solstice for a wood fired pizza, seasonal salad, and a tasty beverage. Conveniently located at the Hood River waterfront, guests have a front row seat or access to water sports (kiting, winging, windsurfing), the waterfront playground for the kids to play, and the Columbia River walkway for the whole family to get out and stretch their legs en route to or from the river!

Outdoor Play

As a leading online kayak store, Outdoor Play offers a vast selection of high-quality kayaking gear and equipment to meet the needs of all skill levels. But they’re not just a kayak shop; they’re also passionate about other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and climbing. When you are serious about a specific water sport, we highly recommend Outdoor Play for quality gear that won’t be an obstacle to your playing full out!

Tillamook is led by farmers, who wake up everyday and do what they love. They remain guided by the same values and beliefs they started with in 1909 and believe quality comes above profit and that natural always beats artificial. Never cutting corners, they source the highest quality ingredients to create products that are downright delicious–we know–we love their ice cream, cheese, and butter! Visit their modern creamery on Highway 101 along the Oregon coast and get a sample or stop by the Tillamook Market Concourse E at the Portland airport.
