A Musical Rafting Adventure with Laura Veirs

December 6th, 2014 by raven


July 26-29, 2015 with Laura Veirs and Kai Welch: We have the vacation of a lifetime for you. Not just any kind of vacation, but one where you’re in a secluded wilderness and the band plays for you, and the intimate group assembled on the trip with you. Raft through the beautiful Hells Canyon on the Snake River for 4 days. For 4 days in July, raft with professional singer-songwriters Laura Veirs and Kai Welch. Raft class III-IV whitewater during the day and soak up private concerts each evening with these amazing musicians. All the while enjoying the fun-loving attentiveness of our Winding Waters Guide Crew. Sign up today as only 15 seats are available.

This trip is part of our Wilderness Concert Series called Music for Wild Places, dreamed up by musician and fellow river guide Kai Welch. Kai’s vision is to collaborate with us in providing this concert series, with a mission of raising awareness to conserve wild sections of rivers like the Snake River through Hells Canyon for future generations. We support the work of the Western Rivers Conservancy in their efforts to conserve these wild places. Learn more about Music for Wild Places and Kai’s vision.
