Central Oregon's mighty Deschutes River is one of the most popular Oregon whitewater rafting venues, and for good reason. White Horse, Buckskin Mary, Trout Creek, Boxcar, and other colorfully named rapids stud the river's course, amidst the breathtaking scenery of the Deschutes River Canyon.
HDRO offers a variety of guided rafting trips on the Deschutes river to suit your needs, ranging from relaxing family outings to high-adrenaline whitewater adventures. We provide wetsuits, splash jackets and booties for these trips.
Our rafts are all new state of the art, equipped with all the essential river accessories that are necessary for a safe and successful trip, including life-jackets, paddles, oars, dry bags, frames, ropes, etc. In addition, we provide all the necessary permits and insurance before each trip.
Deli & Barbeque Lunches
Rafting the river takes a lot of energy, that's why our guides prepare all your meals (included in the price) and take care of all the clean-up afterward.
We provide our famous gourmet Deli Lunches and Back Country Barbeque Lunches. When you're having the time of your life, a great lunch provides the perfect mid-adventure break with your companions and fellow rafters.
