Rafting through the deepest gorge in North America on the Snake River through Hells Canyon
Hells Canyon, home of the mighty Snake River, is the deepest gorge in North America. Marking the border between Idaho and Oregon, 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 warm, clear waters of the Wild & Scenic Snake River thunder through some of the most exciting, big-wave rapids in the Northwest; in calmer sections, the Snake serves up great fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities. Hells Canyon’s watery bliss is matched by its stunning rockscapes and the intriguing remnants of past inhabitants, both indigenous and transplanted, creating a rich river adventure that’s hard to beat.
In addition to the canyon scenery and whitewater there are a number of interesting places we may visit along the way. The Native Americans who once called this place home left remnants of their dwellings as well as many interesting pictographs depicting their lives. There are also historic homesteads along the river like McGaffee Cabin—a homestead preserved from the early 1900s and Kirkwood Historic Ranch and Museum.
