How To Pack for a River Rafting Trip

Time6:43 Icon

All booked and ready to embark on your white water rafting trip with OARS? Well, all except one important thing: what to pack for this river expedition?

Whether you are rafting on the Colorado River through the majestic walls of the Grand Canyon, watching wildlife in between the rapids on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, or enjoying any of our other rafting adventures at OARS, you need to know what to bring and how to pack that gear.

Bringing the right gear and packing it appropriately can make or break your white water rafting vacation. There is nothing better than relaxing next to the river in comfort after a day of rapids as the water rolls through Dinosaur National Monument or Hell’s Canyon and continues downstream through the rapids and scenery that awaits you the following day.

Rivers and their canyons are not made the same; being prepared for your whitewater rafting trip with OARS on one river might mean being prepared to deal with hot weather, while another river might have brisk evenings. Make sure to learn about your trip ahead of time or give us a call to find out about any details.
