The Rogue River is one of the most famous western rivers - and with good reason. Our trip takes place on the most scenic portion, flowing through the heart of the Rogue River Wilderness. For those who love to hike, a gentle, fairly flat riverside trail takes you past old homesteads, through fields of wildflowers, and to ever changing vistas of the river below. For those who love rafting, the class II-IV rapids offer just the right level of challenge for novice and intermediate rafters. The hardest part of each day may be deciding which you want to do that day. Remote riverside lodges offer us the luxury of a comfortable bed, hot showers, and cold drinks each night. Maximum group size: 15
Please Note: On this trip the deposit is non-refundable unless we can fill your space from a waiting list.

This trip is suitable for any healthy, active woman with good mobility who wants a whitewater rafting trip. You can paddle at least half the day or not at all, and you can hike the entire day, a half day, or not at all. You must have sufficient agility to get in and out of rafts in moving water. No previous rafting or hiking experience is required. While this trip is suitable for a variety of fitness levels, you will have the best option of engaging in all activities if you are prepared for a level 3 trip. Prior to beginning a level 3 trip, participants should be engaging in aerobic conditioning, such as walking vigorously up hills, jogging, cross country skiing or stair stepping for 30 - 45 minutes at least 3 - 4 times a week. Rating:    4 5.
Our Rogue River rafting trip allows you to choose between hiking and rafting as much as you want. When you're on the river, there will be a combination of oar boats (you hang on) and paddle boats (you help supply the power). There will also be an inflatable kayak (you are the power) to try out. Oar boats are always an option and the amount of time you spend on the others depends on how many women are interested in which. You will also have the option of hiking for half or whole days on the trail that meanders through the river canyon.
We'll spend the first and last nights at Morrison's Rogue River Lodge in Merlin, OR. Along the way we will be staying at comfortable wilderness lodges with hot showers and comfortable beds.
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
I loved the location, food, and accommodations
It was so much fun rafting, the hikes were beautiful, the lodges were great, and the ROW guides were beyond awesome. I just really cannot say enough about those 4 young women - their competence, skills and hard work, certainly, the good care they took of us all, their lovely and engaging manners.....
The care, attitude and expertise of Carrie and all the guides on the trip. The amazing standards of the rustic lodges along the river.
The partnership with ROW was seamless and so complementary. Kerri worked so well with them. They all worked together to make sure we were safe and had too much fun!!
This trip exceeded my expectations. I (frankly) went along because a friend really wanted to do it, and I had not been in this part of Oregon. Wow! The hiking offered terrific views, lovely spring flowers, and some challenges along the way. While I had not intended to raft, I was glad for an afternoon off from hiking and was sold thereafter. The ROW gals made the rafting experience lots of fun!
Wilderness, rafting, hiking, amazing guides.
The opportunity to whitewater raft again and get to my fiftieth state all in one trip. Truly an All woman trip with the ROW girls was so much fun. They all were the best companions and river bosses. I was so pleased to see girls having opportunities that were closed to us when I grew up.
Meeting women from many different lifestyles and all of us having the same goal of enjoying an outdoor excursion of beauty, adventure and meeting new friends.
Trip was very organized, with excellent guides and most of the all, the Class 4 rapids! Loved the opportunity of choosing whether to hike, raft or kayak daily. This was my first trip with AGC and I enjoyed getting to know the women. Great, fun group!
The graciousness of the guides, the veracity and positive outlook of all the women guests, the River (of course!).
All good! A great way to experience a part of Oregon for the first time.
I had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute!
Loved the combination of hiking and rafting. The lodges were fantastic.... Comfy, clean, a shower and a good meal at the end of the day? What could be better
Exceeded every expectation! Fabulous traveling compnanions, fabulous AGC leader, fabulous river guides, fabulous accommodations!!!
Great guides. The trip ran so smmoth
The rafting was very fun!
the camaradie of the group. the expertise of the guides. The beauty of the river. The graciousness of the lodging hosts.
beautiful scenery, swimming/rafting/hiking along river, delicious meals
I had never river ranted before, so I was open and ready for any adventure/ experience. There was just the right amount of challenge on the trip for newcomers and for those who had done some rafting and hiking in the past.
The Rogue River is an amazing body of water, challenging and yet exhilarating, and it was a wonderful experience traveling down that amazing body of water with new friends and our amazing river guides!
Scenery friendships very organized
Too many to list! Everything! The guides, food, lodging, people, nature, beautiful land and river!
The guides were wonderful and didn't make me feel as though I was a burden since I was the oldest and slowest hiker. The trip over all was the best I have ever taken.
Options of rafting or hiking
The women guides from ROW were great. I loved being able to hike and raft. Enjoyed swimming the rapids.
Great hiking and I enjoyed the time in the raft.
I enjoyed the group of ladies. They were great..
Spendng multiple days on the beautiful Rogue River was a highlight. Our river guides were amazing women! The rafting/hiking option was a perfect mix for my wife and me; I’m a wimpy hiker who loves water and she’s a heavy duty hiker who enjoys occasional rafting trips!
Adventure, challenges, great people and great food!!
All aspects of the trip were great. No complaints. Wonderful scenery. Knowledgeable guides. Fantastic food. Diverse and interesting group of women sharing common interests.
Again, another fabulous AGC guide. Also, again, loved the local outfitter.
Making images of the others during the trip. Particularly when they went through the rapids. Also, hiking the last part of the trail I cam across two streams that I spent a lot of time at shooting.
Weather, organization/efficiency, very affable and fun guides.
The people and rafting
The lodges were great. All of the guides were wonderful, especially Laurie Priest. Itinerary was perfect.
everything was wonderful, from the guides, the river even the lodges along the way
I loved every minute of this trip! It was well planned and the guides were top notch. I really liked the flexibility of choices for activities. The highlight of the trip was experiencing rafting and enjoying the amazing beauty of he Rogue River-plus meeting and getting to know some great women!
All weekend I just kept saying "WOW". The Rouge River is beautiful, the lodges were great, the food was wonderful and our River Guides were 4 of the greatest women I have ever met. Our AGC guide Laurie was the best, she doctored my blister and looked after me, when I could not keep up with the other hikers. I think the thing that was probably the best was spending times with 14 other women from all aspects of life.
It was a great trip...The group seemed to gel and were the most friendly of most of my trips. I loved the rafting, and the hike to "inspiration point" I know it is unfair to compare the food with the trip 2 years ago on the middle fork of Salmon river, but it just didn't compare. My rooms in all lodges were great, but I did hear many complaints from others. I really enjoyed the 7 day Salmon camping trip more that this one staying in lodges, even though camping is not that easy for me.
The trip was just perfect. Everything was so well planned. The guides were experienced and fun.
Spending time on the river with a great group of women and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
very engaged group of participants and guides in a beautiful, one of a kind locale.
Yes, yes, yes. Even though I hurt my ankle and was not able to participate on the hikes, I loved being on the river. I chose the trip to both hike and raft. The Row outfitter was a great choice. The four women guides excelled in all aspects of their jobs. They worked so hard and yet were accessible, friendly, not patronizing...safety was paramount but not to the detriment of fun. With my injured ankle they were very considerate but not patronizing. They were most considerate with my vegan diet...asking me before serving. Every meal I had was in my diet perimeters and delicious. I didn't want for anything. They were very gracious in giving me choice and alternatives to what everyone else ate. I didn't feel like I was singled out for my healthy way of eating.
Option to choose raft and/or hike; beautiful Rogue River location and accommodations; camaraderie between travelers
The AGC guide and the ROW guides were excellent. The group of women were great to get to know and travel with. The itinerary and the level of adventure and excitement were just what I was looking for.
All of the guides were excellent. I felt totally safe at all times. FYI : WE DID NOT GET BREAKFAST THE LAST MORNING. WHAT HAPPENED???
Gorgeous scenery. Row guides were great. Lodges were very nice - don't mind camping but a nice hot shower each night was nice. Highlight - Laurie and others encourged me to try one of the duckies , which I did, and loved it.
Great group, wonderful location, great weather,
