Travel to Oregon with AdventureWomen in 2021 for an exhilarating all-women’s lodge-to-lodge whitewater rafting trip for mothers and daughters on the stunning Rogue River!
The Rogue River was one of the original eight rivers named by Congress in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968, and still boasts pristine beauty and the opportunity to unplug. When is the last time you were off the grid as a mother-daughter pair? On this women’s rafting trip, land in in Medford, Oregon, a small, vibrant city that boasts numerous wine bars to try if you have time before you meet your group at the airport to start your adventure. You’ll meet your professional whitewater rafting guides, who will be with you in the boats from start to finish, ensuring your enjoyment of every rapid. You are also accompanied by an AdventureWomen Ambassador, committed to helping make your experience a fun and personally rewarding adventure, and cheering you on as you reach beyond your comfort zone to take on new challenges in your own unique way!
Start your adventure with a welcome dinner at Morrison’s Lodge, where you’ll toast the excitement to come. You’ll receive your waterproof gear bags from your guides and can ask last-minute packing questions before you separate your river gear from anything you want to store during the trip. The next morning, the fun begins! You’ll drive to the launch where your guides will teach you basic river commands as well as how to self-rescue should you fall out of the boat at any point. If you want a true adrenaline rush, you’ll have the opportunity during the trip to paddle an inflatable kayak through a few of the rapids while your daughter cheers you on! The river starts off gently, but it’s not long until you encounter your first Class II and III rapids. Have a delicious picnic lunch on the riverbank and enjoy a dip in the water before starting to paddle and float again. You’ll arrive at your first lodge in the late afternoon.
The Rogue is one of the only rivers where you can raft during the day and stay in comfortable lodges on the banks of the river at night. You’ll have a nightly happy hour to get to know the other mother-daughter pairs with you on the river, comfortable beds, warm showers, and incredible home-cooked food. Continue downstream, stopping periodically for scenic hikes and explorations of historic areas along the river. As you head towards each rapid, you and your fellow travelers will paddle hard and follow your guide’s instructions to navigate through the rapid safely; reach the end of each rapid with a cheer! If you’re looking for some downtime, don’t worry – with four days along the river, you’ll have ample time to relax, do some fishing, play cards, or read a book. Best of all, spend your days and evenings laughing with the family you arrived with, and with your new AdventureWomen family.
