Craft Beer Tasting on the Lower Salmon River 5 Days


Payette Brewing Co, Boise, ID


Payette Brewing Co. based in Boise, ID will be providing their choice, canned, craft beers (they created the first craft beer cans from the Gem State), sharing their passion to “venture down the road less traveled to make the best beer in the west.”

Payette’s namesake, François Payette, was a French Canadian trapper whose legacy is captured in numerous Idaho landmarks. The name has since become synonymous with an adventurous spirit that pervades Idaho’s year-round outdoor lifestyle and perfectly fits the company’s attitude and philosophy.

The Lower Salmon River is ideal for a variety of boats, including dories, inflatable kayaks, paddle rafts and SUPs

The Lower Salmon River exhibits a side of Idaho seldom seen by most visitors. Distinctive from the forests and mountains that make up much of Idaho’s wilderness, this river runs through the warmer, drier canyon country of the Seven Devils. Not confined to just one river canyon, the Lower Salmon actually flows through four separate gorges—Green, Cougar, Snow Hole, and Blue canyons—interspersed with sprawling, wide-open vistas. With some of the biggest and most beautiful white sand beaches of any western river, the Lower Salmon is the perfect destination for water-based fun in the sun. Warm weather, easy-going whitewater, and lots of wildlife make this a great trip!
