Cle Elum River (Class II-III)

Conveniently located near the historic town of Roslyn, a 5-star lodge, golf courses, spas, fine dining, and a winery, embark on a guided adventure down the swift and scenic Cle Elum River within a 90-minute drive of Seattle.

The Cle Elum River is the largest tributary of the Yakima River and is a stunning home to wildflowers, cutthroat and rainbow trout, eagles, songbirds, deer, and bears. ThisĀ is the most scenic tour we offer, but a little harder to get to than the Upper Yakima River.

The water is quick with lots of islands and log jams. There is no swimming or stopping on this float; if there are kids in your group, the Yakima River is usually a better option.

Trips on the Cle Elum are done on rafts with oar rigs, your guide will carefully maneuver your party through meandering waterways while you appreciate the feeling of seclusion and wildness.
