International Trips


Redwoods & Rivers has partnered with Jon O’Connor for river rafting trips in Nepal and South America.

Whenever we have a group of 6 or more we can schedule trips to Nepal (Sept.-Oct.) and for South America (Jan.-Mar.).

Brief bio on Jon:  “Jon O’Connor has been consistently rafting rivers since 2000 where he took guide school and hasn’t been the same since - chasing river across 4 continents.  In the off season Jon run rivers throughout the Pacific North West and the world. 

He is also the founder of North Coast Adventure Centers, based in Arcata, CA. Jon has been a guide for Redwoods and Rivers for over 15 years now because he gives as much as he gets whenever he spends time at Redwoods and Rivers Resort, ropes course, or river trips.  Jon’s river highlight would have to be taking a helicopter shuttle to the Karamea River in New Zealand or running the Kali Gandaki river in Nepal.  Rivers have changed Jon’s life in so many ways, mostly - he slows down around them, appreciates his family, feels alive, and takes deep breaths more ofter when he is floating a new or favorite river.” (Nepal photo and Jon O’Connor bio from

"We think alot about our trip, kind of hard to forget! We difinitely want to head back up your way again, perhaps with a group of friends. You are fortunate to enjoy such a beautiful piece of the planet up there and we want to soak it up as much as we can whenever we can. We can't wait to get the photos to put up on our web site and show the world our adventure."
