What You'll Get
White-water-rafting teams work together to conquer thrilling rapids, while pool-rafting teams work together to capsize sleeping Dads. Display buoyant collaboration with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a half-day white-water-rafting trip on the Rogue River from Rogue Rafting Company in Gold Hill (an $85 value).
Rogue Rafting Company leads professionally guided white-water-rafting trips atop the rapids of the Rogue River. Half-day voyages begin in docile tides where explorers and gold sifters start the adventure comfortably as they become familiar with rafting tactics. Drifting onward, vessels are met with increasingly stronger currents that challenge crews, eventually meeting the liquid bombardment and derisive sarcasm of a Class IV rapid. After surmounting initial blitzes of tumultuous torrents, raft-masters seize brief moments of mellow waters to refuel before one final deluge. Nestled by the serenity of nature's embrace, the finishing moments of the trip provide the chance to absorb the wild lives of wildlife, including possible sightings of eagles, beavers, otters, and feral boy scouts.
Half-day adventures run the length of seven miles and last around three hours. Rafting greenhorns and gurus alike are encouraged to test the varying rapids of the Rogue River, and children eight years and older can start college prep early with hands-on education on free-surface hydraulics.

About Rogue Rafting Co.
Over its 155-mile path from the Cascade Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, the Rogue River alternates between slow-flowing Class I water to roiling, Class IV rapids that challenge even experienced paddlers. Rogue Rafting Co. is situated mere steps from the dynamic watercourse, making it easy for paddlers of all ages and abilities to go exploring by raft or kayak.
Professional river guides lead tours that range from three-hour forays to multi-day camping trips. Though they challenge guests to brave the Class IV Nugget Falls and Power House rapids, they consider passengers’ comfort paramount. To that end, they welcome nervous guests to jump ashore, walk around the more challenging rapids, and then rejoin the group on the other side. Additionally, guides can customize tours to suit groups’ interests, whether it be tackling the most difficult rapids or taking time to spot eagles, osprey, and nomadic watercolor painters who roost along the shore.
