Outdoor Adventures was started in 1978 and our Kern River permit was awarded to us in 1980.
Founded by Bob Volpert and originally named Outdoor Adventures, the company was comprised of whitewater rafting operations all over the west. With a focus on running high quality, high value, family friendly river trips, Bob grew the business to where it is today: Rafting operations in Idaho, Oregon and the Kern river in California. Working hand in hand with his three sons, the company has remained in the Volpert family who are committed to Bob’s original vision.
A message from Matt Volpert – Growing up in the river outfitting business, I know what it takes to not run a good rafting trip, but a great one. Our guides, my family and myself, are committed to providing a safe, and fun river trip that will be the highlight of your summer. For those interested in the other rivers that we run, my older brother Will is an outfitter in Oregon (Indigo Creek Outfitters / Rogue River Journeys) and my younger brother Skip handles our Middle Fork of the Salmon operation (Idaho River Journeys). I look forward to having you join us, and you can always reach me directly at email@example.com
