Active Adventure

Hells Canyon Raft is not your typical Idaho whitewater rafting company. With over 30 years experience, we constantly set the high water mark for the best Snake River and Salmon River rafting trips in Idaho. With our attention to detail, highly trained guides, top of the line equipment, you can expect the trip of a lifetime.

Typical Day

You arise to the aroma of fresh coffee and sizzling bacon. Breakfast is served around 7:30 or 8:00. While the guides clean up the kitchen and other gear there is time to pack your personal gear. We will come around and take down your tents, as they are cleaned out. We usually get on the river about the same time the sun peaks over the canyon rim. Hells Canyon is the deepest gorge in North America, so it is about 9:30 before we see sun on the water. Today we run the two largest rapids on the river; Wildsheep and Granite Creek. A quick scout at each provides a view of the excitement to come, and a chance for the paddle boat and kayakers to receive last minute instructions. We will also explore ancient Indian Pictographs, and another abandoned homestead at Bernard Creek. The McGaffee Family lived at Bernard creek from 1905 into the late 30s. Check out their Hells Canyon wallpaper made from old Saturday Evening Post magazines.

After lunch and maybe some sturgeon fishing we cruise through some smaller rapids and calm water. This is a great time to try out the inflatable kayaks. We arrive in camp around 4:30. Our camp tonight has a fantastic view of “Suicide Point”, which is tomorrow morning’s hike. Suicide Point, like all other named places in Hells Canyon, has a great story, but you have to hike to hear it.

Age range, type of group

Trips are perfect for ages 7 to 97. We take a mix of families, friends, corporate groups, and singles

Sleeping and meals

Our gear boat travels ahead each day to set up a luxurious river camp. When you arrive at camp, your spacious tents are setup, the bags are packed up, hors d’oeuvres are set out, dining tables and chairs are ready for dinner, our amazing river kitchen is ready, and you can settle into camp for the evening. There is time to explore " hike, fish, relax in the shade. We will never ask you to unload cargo or set up your own tent. We staff our trips with a ratio of one guide to 3-4 guests providing you the ultimate in personal attention.
