GREAT Experience - Very FUN -- a little cool, and the ROW crews did everything to make the guest comfortable. Additionally, the very best, by far mid-day lunch served by the ROW crew. The rapids were more than hoped for. The only one "overboard" was the ROW guide [3 times] Our group certainly appreciated the trip with your folks from... More

Not sure where to review my recent trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon, so I'm putting comments here! These guys are the best. A bunch of us from Australia came to raft the river, not sure what to expect. We had a blast - the river was amazing and beautiful. The guides were professional and fun and worked... More

We recently did ROW's 5-day, 4-night self-guided bike trip. It was lots of fun, great cycling, wonderful accommodations all the way through, and prompt transfer of luggage. Thanks to Jennifer for arranging everything, Ryan for his help, and Erica and Galen, our guides for the sunset kayak and drivers for our transfers. All were extremely helpful and informative. I recommend... More

Fabulous family adventure (ages 55 to 16). The weather was great. The guides were entertaining and knowledgeable. The River/water was TERRIFIC! Of the of the 21 people that were in 3 rafts... 1 person from each raft landed in the water! My 16 year old daughter was the one from our raft. The water was fun, exciting, a bit scary,... More

ROW has it all covered. From booking to on-line registration and follow-up informational emails to the event itself, everything was well done. Directions were perfect to the launch site and we arrived with our forms already submitted on-line so we proceeded to equipment gathering and putting on wet suits and outer ware provided by ROW. The entire trip was as... More

ROW is it! We rafted the Moyie today and it was amazing! The water was great, very exciting, and our guide, Rebecca, made us feel comfortable and in control. Anyone looking for a great day of fun and beauty, this is your trip. We even saw a mama moose with her very young baby. How often does that happen? !
