Leaders of the industry
Zoller’s Outdoor Odysseys has been and will continue to be the whitewater rafting industry leaders and is proud to be not only the pioneer rafting outfitters of the Klickitat River and White Salmon River, but also the longest running, whitewater enterprise in Washington or Oregon. If you know of a whitewater rafting company in Oregon or Washington that has been around longer than 40 years please let us know who they are and we will gladly tip our hats and be happy with second place. It is an honor for each one of us at Zoller’s to share the fun of whitewater rafting these very special rivers with so many folks that arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.
Fun whitewater rafting options
In 2012 Zoller’s took a bold step (again) and became by far the most versatile rafting company in the area with the addition of two new whitewater rafting options on the White Salmon River. In addition to our standard whitewater rafting adventure, now called the Middle Gorge we have opened up a new launch site further upstream than any other whitewater rafting company and will offer a “higher adventure” rafting option for those who desire a little more kick to their whitewater experience. This new whitewater run will be called the Upper Gorge and water level permitting, we will offer this new run from July – September. As if that was not enough, Condit Dam removal should be complete by September of 2012 and will then allow us to offer another whitewater rafting experience on the lower end of the river. While we currently cannot be sure of exactly what this rafting run will look like, but all indications are that it will be a class III “splash and giggle” stretch of river. We shall call this new rafting option the Lower Gorge.
The best of the best!
The White Salmon River has long been known as the best one-day rafting trip in the Oregon / Washington area providing far more whitewater than most rafting rivers provide in twice that amount of rafting miles. Now with our two new options of the Upper and Lower Gorge which compliments our Middle Gorge there can be no questions about the White Salmon River being the #1 commercial whitewater rafting river of Oregon and Washington.
