WRO Response to COVID-19

“Once we got going the trip was faultless, all the guides went out of their way to help us have a great time from cooking fantastic meals, leading us on random side hikes, to advising on flora and fauna and basically making the trip perfect, it’s hard to think what more they could have done… I couldn’t recommend WRO strongly enough.”

“Seth and crew are a classy outfit. I have paddled all over the country (the Grand Canyon, Colorado, Southeast, Cali) and the guides at WRO were not only smooth operators on the Flathead but they were also some of the most considerate people I met in 2017.”
