We’ll meet the night before the river trip where we’ll have a hearty meal and introduction to the river and trip. A Karuk Tribal member will speak about the tribe, history, and culture of the Klamath River.

The next day we’ll pack our dry bags and launch out on the river.

On the river, guides will introduce guiding and river reading concepts and will quickly pass off guiding responsibilities to students. Kayaks and the 8 foot Mini-Me raft will also be available for use.

At night, we’ll fix amazing food, hang out, tell stories, and sleep under endless starry nights.

A Klamath River Trip is much more than being on the water. It is enjoying the journey along the way. Great food, swimming, fishing, music, stories, games, and hikes. By the end of your journey, you’ll want to keep going on down the river. Come join us and experience a trip you’ll never forget.

" I have taken my school's high school seniors on a 4-day Lower Klamath trip with River Dancers for the last few years and I couldn't be happier. As a professional Outdoor Educator and trip planner I have a good idea of how to run a really quality operation and to provide a fun and safe outdoor adventure, and to me River Dancers is top notch. The food is fantastic, the guides are fun, knowledgeable, and so easy to get a long with, and whose experience and personalities bring a depth to the experience that I have not found from other outfitters. Safety is also a top priority for them. They know the river so well and use that knowledge to keep everyone as safe as possible. I couldn't recommend them enough!!!!" -- Luke Barbee, San Francisco Waldorf High School
