“Our family wanted to express our thanks and big pats on the back to all our river guides for a super trip on the Lower Klamath. We had a ball! Everyone was warm and friendly, making sure all of the families’ needs were met. It was the small things (fresh brewed coffee and yogurts ready at 7:00 a.m. for the early risers) and the big things (handling food allergies and discussing safety all the time) that made the trip work. We loved the scenery and having the choice between rafts and inflatable kayaks. The food was plentiful and appealed to all ages. YUM! We learned about the ospreys, the river and so much more. You exceeded our expectations. We will definitely recommend OARS to our friends and family. If you saw the New York Times article, we did not know we were part of a growing trend: outdoor vacations with kids! ”

“I cannot praise the guides enough! They were absolutely amazing! They were so attentive, supportive and downright funny when it came to my children. (And they made sure Mom had a great time, too!) They really went out of their way to teach my sons how to paddle and navigate the river, and learn safety awareness. Because of my complete confidence in them, I was able to truly relax and enjoy myself, too. ”

“Traveling with OARS on a river trip is such a pleasure. ‘Effortless Camping’ is how I best describe it! We even got a Yoga lesson on the beach overlooking the Klamath one evening! What a treat!!!!”

“The scenery is beautiful. The guides were fantastic and professional. The trip was geared toward kids and there were nine kids in our group so my kids had fun meeting new friends.”
