Nothing compares to rafting Hells Canyon in Idaho, home of the mighty Snake River and the deepest gorge in North America. Marking the border between Idaho and Oregon, Idaho’s Hells Canyon plunges to depths of nearly 8,000 feet between the Seven Devils range to the east and Oregon’s rim country to the west. Through this tremendous gorge, the Snake River’s warm, clear waters yield some of the best big waves and whitewater rapids in the U.S. Northwest. In calmer sections, the Snake River serves up great Idaho fishing opportunities. Hells Canyon’s watery bliss is matched by its stunning rockscapes and the intriguing remnants of past inhabitants, creating a rich river adventure that’s hard to beat. Warm weather, warm water and fun rapids make this a great trip for kids, parents and grandparents of nearly any age.

“The trip leader and staff were fantastic. They were always helpful and had positive attitudes. Personally, I enjoyed tackling the rapids in the ducky! The inflatable kayak was a blast! This was my first whitewater kayaking of any type, and I went through those monster rapids. The biggest adrenaline rush I’ve ever had! My 15 year old daughter loved the whole trip, from the food to having a try at rowing the raft, to hanging out in camp. The food was great of course.”
-Phil Lomas ~ Verona, WI
“I work as a project manager for IBM Corporation. Communications and leadership is everything. These guys were not only excellent leaders they had all the major skills one needs when leading a crowd. Intelligence, communications, cohesiveness amongst the team, training and a take charge attitude. This starts with the Trip Leader and worked its way right down through the group. They were also excellent at communicating the secondary information that could easily been ignored, whether it was the information shared on a hike to see artifacts, weather changes in the canyon or pointing out interesting changes in the rock formations…The accommodations were excellent including the bedding, food, and equipment…GREAT TRIP!!!”
-Chuck Townsley ~ Round Rock, TX

–John Hutchinson ~Washington Grove, MD
“It’s hard to choose what was most enjoyable about the trip since I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our adventure. However, if I have to choose it would be the crew that took us on an adventure that was not only beautiful but was done to see that we enjoyed ourselves to the limit. Food was really good too.”
–Linda Martinelli ~Queen Creek, AZ
