Inflatable Kayaking River Expeditions
6 days on the Owyhee River
Written by LD
Have you ever wanted to go on a kayaking expedition? Since it has been such a great winter for snow this year we are able to offer a 6 day inflatable kayaking expedition on the Owyhee River in the second week of June. We look forward to you joining us on this epic river adventure. The potential launch date is June 12- June 14.
Inflatable kayaking through the Owyhee River canyon is truly a wilderness river expedition. Spectacular is an understatement of the spectacular beauty and solitude of the Owyhee River canyon. Located in Southeastern Oregon, you will find exceptional whitewater inflatable kayaking, riverside hot springs, an abundance of wildlife and rarely seen birds, challenging side hikes, and towering canyon walls. This kayaking trip is remote and you'll see why it's referred to as the Loneliest River in America and one of our favorites.
We run this expedition style kayak trip very lightly. All guides and participants will pack all of their own personal gear into their own kayaks and we will be packing all camp gear into small 10' rafts. We do require that you be in good physical condition to particpate in the trip. This is a wilderness kayak experience and will be a physically demanding, but rewarding river adventure.
Wild, Scenic, Remote, and Unforgettable
The Lower Owyhee is the perfect run to inflatable kayak at lower water levels. The water and air temperature in June is much warmer than a spring trip. Our trip itinerary consists of paddling during the day, stopping to do side hikes, and exploring the area for petroglyphs. We will arrange our camps that we are able to camp at hot springs. It's always nice after a long day of paddling to be able to soak in your own riverside, all natural hot tub! It's Mother Nature's finest relaxation.
Trip dates: June 12-17
Out of our control: A 3% BLM/USFS fee will be added to the cost of all inflatable kayaking trips.
*Due to the unpredictable nature of water flows on the Owyhee River these are potential trip dates. Please call or e-mail for more information on trip availability and water flows.
