Packraft Expedition Training



Register Now

After acquiring essential skills from prior packraft-specific training with SSI or another approved course provider, expedition members will apply these skills during a 5-day trip covering up to 40 miles of downstream travel. Course size is currently limited to 10 expedition paddling members and two instructors.

The team will engage in a structured approach to river running, mastering the art of leading a group of paddlers through a remote river section. Each participant in the trip will be fully self-supported, carrying their own food, camp equipment, and shared group gear. This ensures that paddlers become acquainted with their equipment and develop confidence in their systems.

This training takes place in a remote region in Southeast Oregon. The Owyhee River and its tributaries flow through the Owyhee Plateau where they have carved deep, spectacular canyons, often with vertical walls that rise, in some places, over 1,000 feet (300 m) above the river.
