RAFT AS YOU EXPLORE OUR MIGHTY RIVER SYSTEM

The first commercial river rafting trips in the United States were launched in Idaho. The outfitters here have always been leaders and standard-setters for this industry.
No other state can claim as many recreational river miles as Idaho. Most of the 3,100 whitewater river miles in the state are located here in North Central Idaho.
Outfitters offer rafting trips of all kinds for all ages and abilities. Families enjoy fun excursions on rivers such as the Main Salmon. Sightseers like quiet fl at-water floats on rivers such as the Clearwater River. Whitewater seekers go for the Middle Fork of the Salmon, Lochsa, Selway, or the Snake River through Hells Canyon.
  1. Snake River Hells Canyon North America's Deepest Gorge
  2. Lochsa River Lochsa means "rough water" in the language of the Nez Perce.
  3. Clearwater River The Clearwater River provides an easy float along scenic Hwy 12.
  4. Middle Fork Clearwater River The Lochsa and the Selway come together to form the Middle Fork.
  5. Main Salmon River The "River of No Return". Class III Rapids.
  6. Middle Fork Salmon River The Middle Fork is the historical origin of wilderness white water rafting trips.
  7. Salmon River Above Riggins Excellent class III canoe, raft and dory country.
  8. Salmon River Lower Gorge The most underrated long river trip - exciting rapids and beautiful scenery.
  9. Salmon River Below Riggins Features lots of "big water" rapids, yet is a relatively safe run.
