About this trip

Join us on an epic wilderness adventure that combines all of the best things: rafting, hiking, swimming, yoga, delicious food, fun happy hours, amazing scenery, incredible wildlife and great people. The Rogue River is an iconic American classic, one of the country’s great summer wilderness trips, a founding member of the National Wild and Scenic River System, and a river with such a grand reputation that in some circles it is simply known as “the Canyon”. 


Trip Highlights

  • Soak in the incredible 50 miles of the beautiful Wild & Scenic section of the Rogue River
  • Float over 80 whitewater rapids that are exciting yet safe
  • Explore incredible side canyon hikes to amazing waterfalls
  • Arrive at camp – fully set-up by the guides – grab a beverage, and relax by the pristine river
  • Appreciate the fantastic wildlife viewing opportunities: black bears, turtles, river otter and bald eagles
  • Enjoy falling asleep under the stars with the sounds of the river
  • Wake up and go on an early morning trail run or do yoga by the river


Advanced Wilderness Life Support: 

In 2023 we will be adding Wilderness Medicine skills to the Rogue River Safari. The lectures and hands-on skills will be interspersed throughout rafting, hiking and meals. There will be an option to obtain your Advanced Wilderness Life Support Certification.  The AWLS certification course is a hybrid course with some online material completed prior to the trip and then a day of lecture material in Ashland Oregon before the river trip begins.   The remaining hours of hands-on skills will be taught throughout the 4 days on the river. 


Who is this trip for? 

Loved ones and family are welcome on this trip! We have specifically designed this trip so that non-medical professionals can join and learn some wilderness medicine skills! The material is helpful for anyone who spends time outdoors, regardless if you are in the medical field.


CME and CEU accreditation: 

Approved for up to 24.5 hours of continuing education credits through the Wilderness Medical Society. Nurses also get up to 24.5 CEUs for the AWLS course or 8 CEUs for just the river skills course. . 

What is Safari Style? 

Safari-style trips take river camping to the next level! Each afternoon you will show up to a fully set up camp with walk-in tents (nightstands, tent runners, cots, pads, and sleeping bags), a shaded hangout area, and a family-style dining area (fully set-up tables under the stars).

Enjoy wine tasting, happy hours with appetizers, and delicious gourmet meals with some of the finest local ingredients and products. On these trips, extra experienced guides help with the gear and provide a more personalized service, from helping set up your tents to hosting a full complimentary bar.

Simply the best ever!

I was probably the least rugged and least prepared person on the trip and the weather was not good, but it was still an awesome experience and I would do it again. The river is exhilarating, food delicious and our camp was set up and ready to go every afternoon when we got out of the rafts.

Myself and three friends joined this trip because of the descriptions of great food, comfortable camping with experienced guides who thought of everything. Our expectations were more than exceeded. The Safari Style trip provided very comfortable beds - and we were blown away by the level of detail that went into the full bar/wine tasting and delicious/healthy food for every meal. The guides were experienced/competent and friendly. Our group is not related to the Medical field, but we joined this Medtreks excursion and felt welcomed by the other medical professionals who joined (and additionally safe as a bonus!). ABSOLUTELY WORTH the additional cost to go with a Momentum Safari style trip - and the people who join a Medtreks journey are fun, intelligent and first-rate. I wold highly recommend this for ALL ages and experience levels.

I had an amazing time! My fear of doing outdoor stuff is what brought me to this trip. I have never been on a white water rafting trip or kayaking. But the wonderful guides were patient and encouraged me. Every little detail was thoughtful and appreciated. I have made connections with other strong and inspiring women. Mission accomplished, Med Treks! See you next year!
