Our Destinations

Since 1973 James Henry River Journeys has been introducing adventurous souls to the delights of whitewater river travel on Alaska, Oregon, California, and Idaho rivers. From the excitement of challenging whitewater to the serenity of moving water, we've provided unique special-theme trips for individuals and families seeking fun-filled, adventure-oriented, vacations on the finest rivers of the American West and Alaska. Our unique offerings have given us a unique niche in the river-running and adventure travel community.

Since the inception of our company, we have been committed to the concept that river travel can be both pleasurable and enriching. Our Special-Interest rafting adventures are a natural outgrowth of this idea. Our core program includes anthropology and photographic expeditions on S.E. Alaska’s magnificent Tatshenshini-Alsek River and on the North Slope, the sublime Marsh Fork of the Canning. These journeys are in-depth encounters with the spirit of the pristine North and its wildlife. In the lower 48, our highly-acclaimed winetasting, classical music, and family outings on California’s playful Klamath are perfect short immersions on exquisite coastal streams. These rivers give participants a real taste of the wild West and our rugged coastal rivers.

are taught spring and fall along the Northern California Coast at Pt Reyes National Seashore: "Wildflowers and the Elements of Design" and "The Joy of Abstract Photography" . On the Central California Coast, workshops are offered "in Search of the Expressive Image: UCSC Arboretum, Wilder Ranch and Big Basin".

During the summer you can join one of the Alaska Photography River trips in Southeast Alaska on the Tatshenshini. On these trips you will immerse yourself in some of the most compelling landscapes on the planet, refine your photographic skills, and learn how to take more expressive images. These programs are led by owner/director/ Jimmy Katz.

We invite you to rejuvenate yourself. Take the less-traveled path and discover the joys of a wilderness river journey. Our expert Guides and Facilitators and their attention to quality, safety, and service, are ready to lend their expertise to make your vacation the best one ever.

Don’t hesitate to give us a call. We love to chat about our trips.

Best Wishes,
Jimmy Katz - Director and Founder
