Cooper Freeman

Nothing gets Cooper going like building a strong team to tackle some of the world’s finest whitewater. Cooper followed in the footsteps of Marc and Laurence launching his guiding career with the legendary California outfit Whitewater Voyages when he was 18 years old. After graduating with high honors from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Environmental History, he became Voyages’ youngest Tuolumne River manager ever at the ripe age of 21. Since then, Cooper has organized, guided, and led expeditions in Africa, India, Patagonia, British Columbia, and all over the western U.S. Cooper is equally at home finding the smoothest lines on the river, giving impromptu talks on local geology, ecology, and history, creating enchanting rhythms on the djembe around a starry night campfire, pouring over logistics and finances for a complex expedition, or whipping up a delicious feast in the wilderness. When not running rivers, Cooper works for the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center in northern California to help solve the worlds problems, which makes him just want to run rivers! Cooper loves guiding for Bio Bio Expeditions – the perfect company to share his favorite wild rivers with exceptional people.
