I've lived in Merlin for over 25 years and this is the first time I've done the lower Rogue or taken longer than a day trip down the river. Amazing!!! THE BEST GUIDES EVER! FANTASTIC NATURALIST! Not only were they good at what they do, they could cook as well! I was expecting hot dogs and hamburgers and got three full gourmet meals every day!! On the water and off I was never made to feel like I had to do anything I wasn't ready to do. I would take this trip again and I would recommend it to anyone, experienced or not. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

What a fun and delightful rafting trip! The Rogue is the third rafting trip taken in the last 10 months with the O.R.E. group through Road Scholar. I wouldn't be coming back if I didn't enjoy the outdoor rafting/hiking adventures with like-minded people. The experienced guides have been great. I have felt completely safe as they negotiated the rapids in all three rivers.

My second trip with ORE through Road Scholar. Great trip, wonderful guides and the naturalist Carolyn was very funny and knowledgeable. I loved the stories she told about the history and people of the river. Dove, Jason and Ted watched over us, kept us safe and prepared great meals. Hope to do another trip with the ORE.

Wonderful trip! Our guides insured the perfect mix of fun, adventure, learning and safety. Time on the river got us up close and personal with nature's beauty......amazing geology, wildlife and trees/plants. The lodges were a special addition. Each had its own personality but all offered beautiful scenery, good food and friendly hospitality. I strongly recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and getting to know interesting new people. The activity level is your choice as you can be passenger, paddler or kayaker. The rapids added a thrill but with the expertise and guidance of Ted, Alux, Jessica and Lewis we always safe.
