Come let the Zoller's whitewater team guide you through the Upper, Middle or Lower Gorge of the White Salmon River. Punch into "Top Drop", "Granny Snatcher" "Corkscrew" and many other fun, full soaking, rapids. For those looking for the big optional drop of Husum Falls, hang on tight for a 14 foot plunge into the pool of the falls. Adventuresome adults and strong teens should check out the tight canyon and steep drops of the "Upper Gorge". Zoller's has been owned and operated by three generations of Zoller's for over 40 years. Click on our "meet the guides" page to see why Zoller's is easily the industry leader in whitewater rafting fun.

The crew at Zoller's were FANTASTIC! I'm always a little nervous about taking the family on an excursion like this when you don't know the quality of the guides, employees, owners, etc. Everything about these guys was first rate. From the time you check in you get the feeling that things are going smooth and there are no worries. The... More

These guys are amazing!! Ryan and Woody are both phenomenal guides who took our group of first timers out on the rapids and not only kept us safe, but made it really fun and memorable!! They go over everything so you feel more prepared, and they know these rivers like the back of their hands and call out what to... More

Rafting in October could of been a miserable experience. However, with positive guides like Seth and Ben our rainy day turned into a spectacular adventure. Our guide Seth spotted a bald eagle! Both Ben and Seth made sure we had warm clothes and outfitted us with hats that kept the warmth in. Not only would I recommend this company but... More

My husband and I along with a friend went on this adventure together and had the time of our lives! We are from Oklahoma and do not have rivers like this, so we were newbies to WWater rafting and quite a bit nervous! But the moment we arrived our nerves were calmed by the knowledgeable and friendly guides. Rick was... More

At first glance you would think these folks at Zoller's Outdoor rafting are just a bunch of folks who like to raft, but trust me after going down the river with them they are a very professional operation. Beginning with the gear they provide everything you need including wet suits, boots, helmets, life preservers, and jackets. They not only provide... More

I can not say enough about this place. My first time rafting and I was scared to death. My husband sister and father went. Everyone there put me at ease. Our guide was Nick and he was fantastic. Eased my fears and even got me to do the waterfall. Not only that he gave us a history lesson on the... More

Our family of 5 (3 teenagers: 12; 15; 16) joined Max (our guide) for the upper and lower parts of the river. This was one of the most exciting experiences we have enjoyed as a family. Max was absolutely excellent - pointing out geological sites; petrified trees; logging history; birdlife; fishing - he was so knowledgable. I would encourage you... More

Did the afternoon tour on the White Salmon river with a group of 28, split among 5 rafts. Our guide Ryan couldn't have been better. We did have perfect weather, but the outstanding preparation, on-river instructions, humor, and challenges provided by Ryan made the trip!

Thanks to package ideas from Hood River’s Best Western Plus, we found this well-managed rafting service. Zoller’s welcome room, equipment sheds, changing booths and restrooms are well maintained. Unique to Zoller’s is its own put-in spot on the White Salmon River which flows noisily below the property. Use the website to choose trips, answer questions, and get lots of information.... More

Silas and Max were our guides and we learned about the White Salmon River while going down some great rapids. We went down waterfalls and survived. Nearly drowned and survived. It was the best. Silas also recommended we watch Damnation and I totally appreciate our trip even more for it.
