Upper, Middle, & Lower Gorge
The name says it all! This is the longest whitewater rafting adventure on the entire White Salmon River. It all starts on the Upper Gorge, the most exciting “commercial” whitewater in all of Oregon and Washington in our custom 4-person high adventure Mini Rafts ( no using the standard big six-person rafts for this adventure). Then we run Husum Falls, stop for a tasty lunch while watching rafts and kayaks take the plunge before we continue through the remainder of the Middle Gorge and all the way through the Lower Gorge. We limit this high adventure run to no more than 20 guests at a time to keep it a truly special and unique rafting adventure. Not sure what you need to bring? Check out our What To Expect page and our FAQ page. Those wishing the high adventure of the Upper Gorge must be confident swimmers.
You’ll feel like you are whitewater rafting far from civilization but you’ll only be a few miles outside of Hood River, Oregon, White Salmon, Washington and just east of Portland, Oregon.
Words and photos cannot truly express the beauty of what you will see as you raft through an ancient lava tube lushly forested with cedar, pine, ferns, alder, and oaks with a multitude of springs coming out of the rock walls. You truly feel like you’ve entered a private little paradise on the White Salmon River. Columnar Basalt and Brachia walls tower on each side of you for long stretches of this magnificent canyon. No matter which of our White Salmon whitewater rafting adventures you choose, you will experience this beauty in nature.
