California – our home state – is where our whitewater roots are! 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.
Join us for river rafting on the free-flowing Cal Salmon and Scott Rivers for heart-pounding Class III-V whitewater that plunges over smooth granite drops and through lush northern California forests. Or, enjoy a family-friendly multi-day wilderness rafting trip on the Rogue River.

Springtime weekends finds us in the crowd free gem of northern California.

We are also happy to custom tailor an itinerary for beginner kayakers who want to do a raft-supported multi-day trip on the Klammath River in northern California – a perfect river to learn on.
