WHITEWATER RAFTING IN CALIFORNIA, OREGON, ALASKA & BRITISH COLUMBIA AND LAKE TAHOE MULTI-SPORT ADVENTURES
THE BEST TRIPS IN YOUR BACKYARD
Bio Bio Expeditions is your best option for adventure in North America.
California – our home state and our whitewater roots!
The founders of Bio Bio Expeditions grew up in California and discovered their love for the outdoors on the rivers and in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. In the springtime, there is no better place for whitewater fun than in the crystal clear, pool-drop rivers of California such as rafting the California Salmon or in the scenic deep canyons paddling the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. And what would a trip to California be without enjoying the multi-sport “adventure mecca” of Lake Tahoe in Northern California?
Many of our international guests get together for “reunion” trips to experience the Bio Bio Expeditions magic with their friends again. We are also happy to custom tailor an itinerary for beginner kayakers who want to do a raft-supported multi-day trip on the Klamath River in northern California – a perfect river to learn on.
British Columbia Rafting
Nestled in the rainshadow of BC’s Coastal Range, the Chilcotin region offers a wilderness experience comparable to unsettled West of old. Wild horses, fresh water, abundant wildlife and few if any people add to the beauty and charm of this secluded area. And flowing through this remote landscape the Chilko, Chilcotin and Fraser rivers add a level of excitement not found anywhere else.Welcome to the White Mile – the longest stretch of continuously navigable whitewater in North America! Join us for a 7-day whitewater rafting adventure on this untamed river system. It’s an experience few are privileged to enjoy and all who do, remember for a lifetime.
Tatshenshini-Alsek River Rafting
In the northwest corner of the continent, where the boundaries of British Columbia, the Yukon and Alaska converge, the Tatshenshini and Alsek rivers flow amidst three-mile-high mountains. Massive glaciers descend to the water’s edge, shearing off thunderously into calving icebergs. The primeval landscape, dominated by grizzlies, ravens and eagles is wilderness in its purest form. Join Bio Bio Expeditions for an 11-day exploration of this stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site.
