Join Matthew Domingo of Wilder Projects and Momentum River Expeditions on the Wild and Scenic Upper Klamath for a very active farm to table style wilderness gourmet river safari. The trips are a unique and amazing way to experience the award winning Upper Klamath Safari Camp, big summer whitewater, remarkable artisan meals featuring food and wine from Oregon, craft cocktails prepared by our guest bartender, and highlight and support local farming.
The Upper Klamath whitewater safari combines rafting big summer flows down rapids that are over a football field long, an ultra-comfortable ‘safari style’ backcountry camp (think glamping), and options for mountain biking, running, inflatable kayaking, and fly fishing. The Upper Klamath cuts a steep wilderness canyon through the Cascades of Southern Oregon and is one of the finest and most exciting class-IV+ rivers in the West. This is a uniquely action packed and comfortable 2 or 3 day luxury camping adventure. There is no other trip like it in the United States and Portland Monthly named it one of “Ten Once-in-a-Lifetime Cascadian Journeys”
Matthew Domingo, formally of Farm to Fork Events and now the founder of Wilder Projects, has been dedicated to strengthening and expanding a community of engaged, adventurous, and experience-hungry travelers since 2010. In that spirit, Wilder Projects creates exceptional culinary experiences in unique urban spaces, agri-tourism rich rural environments, and epic wilderness areas that highlight local farmers, local chefs, local artisans, and local outfitters.
Mathew will be chef and host and every afternoon we will pull into our unique and comfortable ‘Upper Klamath Bush Camp’. The camp is a safari style riverside base camp located deep in the canyon and only accessible by raft. Set among ponderosa pine are shaded walk-in tents with cots and private decks, a shaded eating area, showers, hammocks, and the ‘UK Bar’. The late afternoon can be spent hiking, fly-fishing, playing games in the sun, having a craft cocktail prepared by our guest bartender, or just hanging out in a hammock. In the evening enjoy three course dinners paired with local wines. The dinners will be served under the stars in our “wilderness dining room” and be inspired by the local harvest and will feature local meats and produce.
Join us for a unique and active culinary adventure with three days of big whitewater, lots of activity options, a beautiful canyon, comfortable nights at our safari style backcountry base camp, and multi-course, seasonal feasts served in a dining room where the sky is the ceiling.
