Welcome to BRX

The Best Rafting Expeditions website is an informational site about whitewater rafting, kayaking, and packrafting trips. There are pages on Arizona, California, Oregon, Idaho, and abroad. Trip write-ups focus on our favorite rafting and kayaking rivers. If you don’t find the rivers you are interested in try the Whitewater Guidebook site.


This site provides useful information for people planning their own private rafting and kayaking trips. It has mapped directions to the put-in and take-out for each river. In addition it has links to flows, permit information, recommended books as well as trips highlights. In addition there is useful information for those looking to take a commercial rafting trip.

Contact Us

I have run every river listed here. Feel free to ask me questions through the contact form or in the comments section at the bottom of each river page. Your thoughts on the rivers are also appreciated. I’m also interested in hearing your feedback regarding how I can make the information on this site more accessible and useful.

Additional Information

The United States is unique in the world with its extensive National Parks, Wilderness Areas, and Wild & Scenic Rivers. There are additional pages with information about some of the legislation we have protecting our rivers and the surrounding lands. Finally, there is a recommended reading list as well as a blog.
