The Lower Owyhee has been compared to Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon National Parks but in the end it probably defies direct comparisons. The river is a land of hot springs and hoodoos, of towering bluffs and windswept plateaus, of jaw dropping beauty and awe inspiring loneliness. It is extremely remote, bizarrely beautiful, unpredictable, sometimes haunting, very wild, and rarely seen.
Why choose us on the Lower Owyhee?
The river is a classic Momentum style adventure that highlights our guiding experience, expedition roots, and attention to detail and guest comfort. The Owyhee is remote with the kind of challenging logistics that we relish. We truly love showing people this place!
The Owyhee in Travel Oregon Magazine
Our Lower Owyhee trips were featured in Travel Oregon Magazine.
The side hikes are world-class and for many provide some of the highlights of the trip. We visit places like Pruitt’s Castle, Chalk Basin, Jackson Creek, and Devils Tower. They provide panoramic views of this unique landscape and windows into the ancient history of the river canyon.
This is a wilderness experience enjoyed by a privileged few, a magical place that is perfect for anyone wanting a once in a lifetime trip to a place less traveled.
