The Rogue River Trail presents a remarkable opportunity to immerse yourself in the serene and therapeutic environment of Oregon’s wilderness.

This meticulously guided tour spans four enriching days, each filled with unparalleled natural beauty, historical insights, and the comforting amenities of wilderness lodges.

Crafted in the early 20th century by miners and homesteaders, this historic trail carves its path through the rock cliffs, offering views of the Rogue River Canyon unchanged for over a century.

As you walk the same paths as these early explorers, under the protection of federal preservation efforts, you’ll witness scenes of natural splendor that remain as they were a hundred years ago.

Our guided tour elevates this experience, ensuring you enjoy every moment without the weight of your gear. With professional hiking guides leading the way and rafts for luggage transfer, you’re free to focus on the journey, the panoramas, and nature’s serenity.

The option to hop on a raft gives you the flexibility to engage with the canyon as you wish, making the adventure accessible and enjoyable for all.

Each evening, unwind in wilderness lodges that promise comfort in the heart of the forest. With soft beds, hot showers, and family-style meals, the lodges offer a perfect end to each day’s journey.

Our unique approach to the Rogue River Trail adventure ensures that everyone can experience the grandeur of the river canyon in style.

Whether you’re hiking the entire trail or opting for a leisurely raft ride, our trip guarantees the vacation of a lifetime.
