Upper Klamath rafting trips offer paddlers a beautiful “Wild & Scenic” stretch of river that cuts through an incredible canyon. The stretch starts off with a handful of Class II and III rapids as a warm-up. The first large rapid of the trip, Caldera, is where the nature of the run changes dramatically and goes from a tame meandering river to an impressive stretch of continuous class IV whitewater punctuated by a few noticeable class IV+ drops. From Caldera to Stateline Falls, the whitewater is non-stop. For those looking for a great full-day adventure that is fun and action-packed the Upper Klamath may be your trip of choice.
An Upper Klamath rafting trip offers a glimpse back to the history of western territorial exploration and settlement. Native American sites, pioneer settlements, gold rush exploration, thwarted attempts at development, and the congressional heroics that preserved the Wild & Scenic Upper Klamath make the background of your trip. Guides are knowledgeable about the history of the Upper Klamath and are eager to share their stories with you. Upper Klamath rafting trips are more than just rafting trips – they are a guided experience with guides who have a passion for making your rafting trip perfect for you and your group. So whether that means focusing on whitewater, going for swims, looking for native birds, simply relaxing, or a combination of all the above, we are happy to provide an experience that exceeds your expectations.
Due to the active nature of this run, Upper Klamath trip participants should be in good physical shape and ready for a full day of paddling. Trips meet at the Indigo Creek Outfitters’ Rafting Center at 8:00 a.m. and return to Ashland around 5:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are provided, as well as any paddling gear you need for the day.
