Before & After
The group will be met at the airport in Medford, OR and transported to the Galice Resort on the banks of the Rogue. At the end of our rafting adventure we’ll be brought back to the resort and shuttled to the airport the following day.
We will be spending our days and nights enjoying the beautiful and serenity of the Rogue River. Shelter, in the form of camp tarps and 2-person tents will be provided. The camp tarp is for rain and sun protection while relaxing or during meals. We will spend one night in a riverside lodge along the way.
Bathrooms and Showers
Our raft company is proud to provide private shower huts. These huts are set up in convenient and private locations. The shower hut features hot water that pours from a thermal bag that is securely nestled above your head. Soap holders and towel racks compliment this incredibly sophisticated camp shower system. And you thought you were going to be “roughing” it! We generally camp in areas that include secluded, away-from-camp pit toilets that are maintained by the government agencies that monitor the river. However, we will also carry a portable metal box chemical toilet (similar to motor home toilets) that is used if we camp in an area that does not have the pit toilets. This is set up in a private and scenic spot away from the heart of the camping area. While not in camp and floating on the river we can also stop to use the toilet.
Fishing on the Rogue is generally good. You can bring along any personal fishing gear you’d like. Oregon does require you to have a fishing license. This can be purchased when you arrive. It may be necessary to catch and release.
Meals and Beverages
We will be served gourmet meals, prepared with fresh ingredients. There will also be a variety of beverages served with each meal. Each afternoon there will be happy hour snacks and beverages. Please let us know if you have any special dietary concerns as our guides will be glad to accommodate them.
Raft guides are commonly tipped on adventure trips. Explorations in Travel covers all tips to the guides. However if you would like, feel free to tip any raft guide who made your trip special.
While we do everything possible to follow the itinerary presented to you, we may be forced to adjust trips due to reasons beyond our control.
