Culinary Adventures

Join us for the Serenade trip of a lifetime! Raft the Wild and Scenic Rogue River by day and gather for music and feasts around the fire at night. There is no better way to Serenade your senses than on this four-day adventure. 

If there is one excursion that truly captures the spirit of what Serenade is about, this is it. With Serenade, co-founders Kaela and Austin curate interactive experiences that bring together the things they are most passionate about: food, music and community. Many years ago, Kaela and Austin met and fell in love on the river while working as guides. With a history so intimately tied to the river, this trip down the Rogue is a personal and heartfelt culmination of everything they love and represent through the dream of Serenade.



Join us at our riverside tables, where the Rogue is your dining room and dessert is served under the stars. We bring talented chefs along to craft dinners using live-fire techniques in this wilderness setting.

Come evening, we gather for the Serenade happy hour complete with appetizers, beverages and live music. This is followed by a communal feast prepared over live fire. Finally, dessert is paired with more music played by firelight.



Four days of rafting the Wild and Scenic Rogue River with Northwest Rafting Co. Choose to paddle your own inflatable kayak, be part of a paddle boat team, or relax on a raft as a guide rows you down the river. Floating musical serenades happen often through canyons and on calm stretches. Lunches are prepared river side by guides as we explore side creeks, waterfalls, jumping rock and scenic hikes.

Once in camp, take the time to relax with a cold drink, hike the Rogue River trail, read that book you’ve been putting off, or chat with your new friends. 

Fall asleep beneath the stars, or cozied up in a tent and wake up excited to do it all over again.



From happy hour jams and campfire concerts this trip wouldn’t be a Serenade without music.

 Featuring multiple musical guests for solo sets and rowdier collaborations you will even have the opportunity to enjoy floating Serenades.


“NWRC’s Serenade Rafting Trip gets it right in so many ways. First, the Rogue - wild, peaceful, and picturesque. Then the food - oysters on the half shell, Kobe Beef, smokey vegetables, cast iron crock desserts - all amazing at a restaurant but several notches above when served riverside. Add a dash of banjo and guitar by the fire or floating down the river and life is really looking good. All of this is wrapped in a seamless and flawlessly operated rafting company with the most pleasant and skilled guides to be met on a river anywhere. You pulled together a brilliant maiden Serenade voyage - can’t wait for the next one.

I have done many river trips in my life, but this was my first NWRC trip. This trip was over the top.....great river, fun rapids, perfect weather, unbelievable food.... I mean, truly unbelievable food!!!!, outstanding fun-loving guides. Many of my family members have never camped before and I cannot think of a better introduction to the wilderness and river rafting than this trip. I watched my family members move from nervousness and anxiety pre-trip and on day one and by the end of the first day, smiles and laughter, relaxation and wonder took over. It was an amazing transformation.
