Grande Ronde River Guided Rafting Trips

Launching a boat at Minam begins a journey through a 40 mile roadless canyon on the Wild and Scenic Wallowa and Grande Ronde Rivers.  With the beauty of a mountain stream, forested hillsides give way to layers of basalt rimrock and banks lined with cottonwood, alder, mock orange, and service berry that fill the air with a sweet fragrance.  The roadless Wallowa and Grande Ronde river canyons offers better wildlife viewing than any other river we have floated with bighorn sheep, mountain goats, elk, deer, black bear, otter, and eagles a common sight.  Let the abrasive, distracting sounds of the modern world slip away for a few days while the sounds of the river take over.  There is nothing better for the mind and soul than a river trip down a roadless canyon where the natural rhythms of life are uninterrupted.

The Wallowa and Grande Ronde Rivers offer a family friendly guided rafting trip where Class II rapids offer some splash, but not a lot of difficulty.  Our guided multi-day whitewater rafting trips on the Grande Ronde are typically 3 days and 2 nights beginning at Minam and ending at the Mud Creek takeout 6 miles upstream of Troy, Oregon.  Longer 4-5 day trips are available and you can watch the canyon gradually change from a forested canyon at 2,550 feet elevation at Minam to grass and flower covered canyon walls near the mouth at the Snake River, elevation 825 feet.

Customer Stories

★★★★★

We went on the Minam Store’s Wine and Food on the Snake River through Hell’s Canyon for 5 days and 4 nights of exciting whitewater (class 3) rafting, hiking and glamping. The entire experience was outstanding: Grant and his expert rafting guides provided insights on the river, wildlife, and historical context during our hikes; Walla Walla winemaker Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars brought an abundance of excellent wines; all the delicious food was prepared in advance by Chef Andrae Bopp (rhymes with ‘hope’) of AK’s Mercado in Walla Walla. Grant and Lottie Richie, owners of the Minam Store in Wallowa OR, provided the sturdy rafts and gear (dry bags, tents, cots, etc) Definitely recommend this adventure!
