This year, join Calleva’s Liquid Adventures in the Pacific Northwest where we will lead you down and through the most spectacular array of scenery and rivers.  We visit the rivers of Oregon for 8 days, 6 days on the river. The whitewater will be mostly class III – III+ runs with some option for class IV. You must have a solid roll, a level of comfort on Cheat-type whitewater, a spirit of adventure, and some warm gear.

Expect to eat both lunch and breakfast in the great outdoors. Dinner is in camp or in restaurants we find in the small towns along the way. Participants should be in good physical condition, able to sustain vigorous activity for 6 hours at a time.

Paddlers bring their own personal boating gear and paddle. We will be renting boats and support from eNRG kayaking, a local outfit and good friends of Calleva. Please check with the office before making your flight reservation. We must have 4 paddlers confirmed by March 12  in order to run the trip.  When making a flight reservation please wait for a confirmation that the minimum has been reached or select a refundable ticket.
