A thick Therm-A-Rest pad will offer you a comfortable nights sleep while on your trip. Its internal structure contours to your body and provides unmatched stability and warmth without the weight or bulk of conventional insulation.

Dining on the River

We were truly amazed at the variety and quality of the meals day after day. – Eric S.


Delicious Dutch-oven dinners, sandwich bar lunches, and hearty camp breakfasts are prepared by the crew throughout your river trip.  Our meals are nutritious and delicious.  We incorporate a variety of sustainable foods from local sources.  With a complement of fresh fruits,  vegetables,  whole  grains, pasta, meat and dairy, clients have a variety of food from which to choose.  Although we do not serve a “vegetarian” menu, we do provide enough fresh produce and non-meat items that most vegetarians get along fine for the week they are on the river.  Our meals are self-serve, so guests find it easy to pick and choose what they eat.

If you have any questions about the meals we provide or if you wish to discuss your particular diet needs, please call or email our office. We will let you know if we are able to accommodate your requests or we may suggest that you bring some of your own food items to supplement our menu.
