2019 Dates - Aug 6-8 & by Group 6+ (custom start)The Stein River Extreme Class 5 is a 3 day/2 night adrenaline rush. To run the Stein safely as REO has for 24 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, good swimming ability and team work is highly recommended. On our second full day, we paddle 27 amazing quick-fire rapids on the Stein and make some very technical moves. Paddlers need to be both precise and coordinated. Staying in the boat is 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 290 people in the world have ever rafted the Stein.
