    What to Expect
    Our most popular day trip from Ashland - run over 30 major class III to IV+ rapids on big flows all summer long. The Upper K is arguable the best Class IV summer day trip in the country. The run has three different sections and begins with a fun class-III warm-up. This first stretch makes the Upper Klamath a recommended rafting trip for first-timers in good health, as they have plenty of time to learn the finer points of river running before dropping into rapids that are over a football field long.
    Guests will be picked up at their hotel in Ashland between 8:00am and 9:00am and will return between 5:00pm and 5:30pm – back in time for a shower and dinner before the plays. Besides the amazing whitewater and beautiful canyon, the trip also includes a continental breakfast, a big lunch and snack.
    The run has three different sections beginning with a fun class-III warm-up. This first stretch makes the Upper Klamath a recommended rafting trip for first-timers in good health, as there is plenty of time to learn the finer points of river running. After the warm-up, the canyon constricts and we enter the famous "Hell's Corner" section of river – beginning with a 150 yard rapid known as 'Caldera'. There are very few stretches of summer whitewater like it.
    The Upper Klamath is an original 'backyard' river, and one we know like an old friend. Find out why guests that have joined us on trips all over the west and abroad still try to make time for a 'UK' trip (or two) every year.
    Upper Klamath Day Trips Include:
    • All river equipment.
    • Hotel pick-up and drop-off from the Ashland area.
    • A continental breakfast, gourmet lunch and snack, featuring local and organic produce & products.
    • World-class guides with a minimum 5 years experience leading trips around the globe.
    • One of the finest and most exciting class-IV whitewater day trips in the west!

    We loved out trip. Guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The trip itself is only 4 hours on the water at the most. Somehow I missed that in the trip description. It's 1.5 hrs each way to launch and from take out. Food was excellent. Rapids...More
