The Owyhee River is a dramatic desert sanctuary tucked away in the sparsely-populated southeastern corner of Oregon. Our 5-day Owyhee River rafting trip begins in the tiny town of Rome, Oregon. We’ll explore 50 miles of the lower canyon at a leisurely pace, passing through the deepest and most scenic section of the Owyhee River Canyon. Our take-out is at Birch Creek where transportation is provided back to Rome. Along the way, noted naturalist, Ellen Morris Bishop, will provide in-depth and entertaining interpretation of natural wonders abounding in the canyon. The Owyhee River has inviting sandy beaches surrounded by quiet, uncrowded desert solitude creating a premier camping experience. With a little luck, we’ll enjoy one of several camps with access to nearby natural hot springs – a perfect way to take the chill out of the often fickle weather in April and May. There’s plenty of time to explore side canyons, take photographs and attempt to decipher ancient Native American petroglyphs – many more than 8,000 years old! Rapids like “Bullseye,” “Nuisance” and “Montgomery” entertain and thrill us with a bit of whitewater each day.
