Day 1. Welcome to Oregon!
Our trip begins with a private shuttle from Portland International Airport. After introductions to our fellow travelers and guides and an informational orientation to the weekend's adventure, we'll head to the river put-in and enter into the wilderness for the next three nights. We will "car-camp" this night and prep for our first day on the river!
Day 2: River Wild
Awaken to the symphony of the forest as we ease into our first full day of life on the river. After a hearty breakfast, we will head out on the water with everything we need to survive in our rafts. Spend the day taking in the sights of the surrounding landscapes and enjoy an occasional dip in the water and afternoon hike.
Day 3: Becoming One With Nature
Wake up to the two best smells in the world, nature and coffee! Get ready for another day spent in awe as we continue deeper into nature! By now life seems natural on the river, even normal maybe! Today we experience some of the most challenging and exhilarating sections of the river!
Day 4: Eclectic Portland
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end...or so they say. Whether you spend 3 days or two weeks paddling, the river stays with you, as do the experiences and friendships made. We head into civilization and finish the trip with a group dinner in Portland. Explore the eclectic city and enjoy a local cup of coffee or visit a famous brewery.

I would recommend BTM for any trip you and your friends want to go on, or to any organization interested in planning a trip... especially if you are interested in "getting out there" and not just stopping at the common tourist spots everyone goes to.
This was hands-down one of the the most exciting, rewarding, and memorable trips I've ever been on! The peace of mind to know that I didn't have to worry about anything was worth every penny. All I had to do was show up. Cody and Lystina took it from there. No stress, no anxiety, no rushing around or wasting time trying to find an activity or a place to eat. I got to sit back, relax, and experience a whole new world that was far beyond my map.
Since I've been back I have recommended these trips to so many people because this company creates these remarkable journeys that allow people to experience the world in a unique way. I can't wait to go on my next expedition with Beyond the Map!
