In terms of dramatic scenery, untouhed wilderness, spectacular camps and numerous class 4 - 4+ rapids, the Magpie is without question one of the top whitewater rafting destinations in the world and in the top two or three in North America.  Earth River pioneered rafting on this now classic trip completing the first rafting expedition in 1988.  

"It is the unbroken wilderness that makes
the Magpie a superior experience
to the Middle Fork of the Salmon"

- Robert F. Kennedy Jr.,
President WaterKeeper Alliance -

“Eric Hertz has devoted his life and his company’s resources to saving some of the world’s last great white-water, wilderness rivers.".
"Earth River is the premier river runner in the world. Their staff includes the finest guides to be found."
“Earth River is more than a great whitewater outfitter. Their contributions have made a real difference in our efforts to preserve some of the world's most beautiful rivers in Chile and Canada."
"I want to personally thank Earth River for helping us stop the hydro-electric projects on our land preventing the destruction of one of North America's last great wildernesses.
“I’ve rafted with Eric Hertz down some tough rivers—the Futaleufu in Chile, the Colca in Peru. He's one of the best in the business—obsessed with safety."
