Go to All Members

O.A.R.S. has been family owned and operated since the company was founded in 1969 so they know a thing or two about what makes a great family adventure vacation. In the last 10 years alone, more than 10,000 families have trusted O.A.R.S. with their vacation.

O.A.R.S. trips are grouped as age appropriate and include Easy Expeditions (age 4+), Awesome Escapes (age 7+) and Epic Excursions (for serious adventurers, generally age 12+). Destinations from Canada to Peru range from a laid-back 3-day kayaking adventure on Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park, to a week-long, lodge-based, multi-sport adventure in Costa Rica.

O.A.R.S. offers families the chance to unplug from highly-connected lives and reconnect as a family. And parents get a real vacation too since O.A.R.S. guides take care of the meals, all the activities, and camping equipment and expedition gear are all provided.

Most of O.A.R.S.’ highly popular family adventure vacations are in the U.S. West: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming. However, the company also offers family programs in British Columbia, Costa Rica, Peru, and the Galapagos Islands.

Other popular destinations for families include the Lower Salmon River in Idaho, the Rogue River in Oregon, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and Peru’s Machu Picchu.

In Costa Rica, families enjoy six days of rafting, kayaking, hiking, zip lining and wildlife viewing with 5 nights in comfortable lodges. Two nights are spent on the northern Caribbean coast near Tortuguero National Park with 3 nights at a rainforest eco lodge on the banks of the Pacuare River. The program is open to ages 12 and up.
