We've done several multi-day rafting trips with Ouzel over the last several years. The most recent, this early summer, was our 5th. These are the best vacations. We call it Hi-life camping, not to be confused with the newly minted "glamping". Hi-life because they do...More

Great rafting with the Ouzel professionals! Excellent trip all the way around! Even though we were with children, we felt our guides had it all under control. Having been on quite a few rafting trips, these guys know their stuff.

Highly recommend for families with 10+ year old kids. We were skeptical of the spending several days on the river but the experience was great! Teenage kids want to do it again. Majority of the credit goes to our guides (Max, Brian and Will). They...More

We did the half day trip on the McKenzie and had a great time. Shawn and Phil are excellent guides and made the experience a fun one. The rapids themselves are not hard but we all got wet 😀.
