The Stein River Extreme Class 5 adventure is a 3 day/2 night adrenaline rush. This trip includes 2 rafting trips on the Nahatlatch river with swim and flip drills and a full day on the Stein.

To run the Stein safely as REO has for 23 years, we need special training. On the first river day this will include swimming a Class 3+ rapid on the upper Nahatlatch and raft flipping drills. Strong paddling and good swimming ability or previous Class 4 paddling experience is highly recommended.

REO pioneered the Stein River in 1993 for commercial rafting, the first descent was achieved by helicopter access to the upper Stein. In total only about 250 people in the world have ever rafted the Stein. Our 8 km journey down the Stein includes 27 amazing quick-fire rapids and some very technical moves. Paddlers need to be both precise and coordinated. Staying in the boat is recommended!
