About Us

Our History

Lander’s River Trips is a family owned and operated business founded in 1955 by Bob Lander. Today, President Richard Lander continues in the excellence founded by his father by providing the best customer service and quality outdoor experience possible.


Lander's River Trips commands the greatest presence on the Upper Delaware River, with eight launch and land locations and three river front campgrounds.

Through our affiliation with outdoor organizations, such as Rafting America, we stay on top of current trends and continue to update our equipment and services accordingly. Lander’s River Trips is also an active member of the Professional Paddlesport Association (PPA), America Outdoors and the American Canoe Association (ACA). In partnership with these organizations and the National Park Service, we support and promote unrestricted use of public waterways and encourage ecologically responsible recreation.

"The Delaware River is a protected treasure, flowing through the foothills of the Catskill and Pocono Mountains. Whether you're canoeing, rafting, or camping on the Delaware, you'll enjoy the serenity of this beautiful area and may even catch sight of one of the many nesting pairs of Bald Eagles."
