In this day of frequent travel, we tend to come back with memories of crowds: lines at entrances, tour buses and more tour buses, the hustle and bustle of everyone seeing and doing the same thing everyone else is seeing and doing. Do yourself a favor and come back with memories of an extraordinary land, a truly unspoiled and totally surprising destination even for ecotourists who think they’ve done it all. The Maori called it Aotearoa; Land of the Long White Cloud. We call it 100% Pure New Zealand.
Imagine abundant wildlife in the Oregon Rogue River corridor such as beaver, deer, elk, bald eagles, osprey, mallards, cougars and black bears. Being able to walk the trail and look down at those on rafts or to be on a raft looking up at those on the trail. And, you can do both of these, or one or the other. You can walk part of the way each day and join the rafters after lunch, or raft in the morning and walk in the afternoon. Or, for those who are die-hard walkers, you can walk the entire trail. If floating down the river is your thing, you can do the entire trip that way.
