OARS 50 Years

6 Min. Watch

Travel back in time with our extended family as we reflect on 50 years of guiding and the incomparable nature of river trips. Weaving together vintage footage from early expeditions in Grand Canyon, California, and on Oregon’s Rogue River, and interviews with some OARS originals, this commemorative video is a nod to company founder, George Wendt, and an acknowledgment of the hundreds of guides and employees who have worked tirelessly over the last five decades to help make OARS the company it is today.
