Idaho is an awe-inspiring state with a web of over 3,500 whitewater river miles, dozens of mountain ranges and the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states. Ranked 13th in area among the states, 69 percent of Idaho is public land. On this multisport journey you climb Idaho's tallest mountain on a non-technical climb, raft through North America's deepest gorge and paddle kayaks on Idaho's largest lake.
This adventure vacation is accessible to anyone in reasonably fit condition. In order to cover the distances between destinations, we'll take advantage of Idaho’s superb air taxi network. This service opens our eyes to Idaho's stunning topographic diversity and gorgeous wilderness.
After we climb 12,668’ Mt. Borah, our first air taxi flight travels across the state to Hells Canyon for a fun-filled three-day whitewater rafting trip on the Snake River. Carving North America’s deepest river gorge, the Snake River is an intermediate, Class III-IV, rafting trip for beginning and experienced rafters.
From Hells Canyon we fly north over wild forested land into Idaho’s Panhandle where we'll land at the lakeside town of Sandpoint. Here we'll take a flat water kayak trip on Lake Pend Oreille, the largest and deepest lake in Idaho. The majority of Pend Oreille's shoreline is pristine public land. We'll paddle beneath towering cliffs and possibly spot some wild mountain goats.
To expand on the adventure fun, ROW’s expert guides will share illuminating presentations about Idaho’s natural and cultural history. Superlative Idaho trips begin in Boise, Idaho and end in Spokane, Washington. Both cities are served by major airlines.
If you need to purchase some gear before your whitewater rafting trip, ROW has assembled the more common items at our ROWear online store, hosted by New Headings.
