We took a 3-day trip with America's Rafting Company down the Snake River and had the MOST amazing trip. I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who likes to spend time outside. The service was wonderful, the food was unbelievably good, the guides were knowledgeable, accommodating and such fun to spend time with. Being far, far away from civilization, getting to spend time on the water, exploring the shores, eating seriously delicious meals and mixed cocktails all while not having to set up my own tent or worry about a thing was exactly what we wanted. We did some fishing, used the 2-man inflatable kayak to explore rapids, got to steer the boats, had cold refreshing beers, saw some amazing stars, and met some wonderful people. I would do a trip with America's Rafting Company again in a heartbeat! Worth every penny and then some.

✨Epic river glamping✨ The service and food of a five-star hotel in the beauty of Hell’s Canyon. We made so many fun memories, learned about the history of the area, and laughed so hard. It was one of my most favorite trips ever. Kudos to the owners - Jarrett and Lauren - and their expert team of guides for curating such an amazing experience for their guests. Thank you!!

I am two years behind in writing this review. They were absolutely amazing. I am gluten free, so I get nervous about the idea of trusting my food to a company but they made sure I had gluten free options at every meal. I never felt like I was missing out because they had equivalent alternatives. I so appreciated the effort they put into making me feel cared for. Not to mention, their energy and enthusiasm for life was infectious. Would definitely go back.

This was my first multi day rafting trip so I didn’t know what to expect, but this exceeded my imagination. The guides were incredible and did everything possible to make the trip an exciting adventure while still having great food and immaculate camp sites.

Absolutely incredible trip! Delicious food, excellent company, phenomenal fishing, and fun whitewater. The guides were truly amazing - from packing and unpacking camp to cooking the best meals I've ever had outdoors (possibly indoors for that matter!) to explaining the history of the canyon. Highly recommend booking with ARC.

Just finished a 4 day Hell's Canyon trip down the Snake River. What a ride. Great guides, great fishing for smallmouth and trout (if you want to get into the fish, ask for Kevin) , nice mix of white water thrills and GREAT FOOD. Lauren plans some fantastic meals with great salads and deserts. Don't go second class ... book with ARC for a trip to remember!

This was one of the best vacations I ever took. The guides were knowledgeable and worked their tales off. The food and accommodations were top notch. I will be booking again. May even make it a yearly event.

This summer my husband and I took our ten year old son, for his tenth birthday, on a Snake River trip with ARC. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company. From the very first pre-trip meeting I could tell we were in excellent hands! Every guide on our trip was not only extremely qualified and knowledgeable, but it is obvious that they also really love their job. They each went above and beyond to make this trip special for our son - from taking the time to help him fish, indulging all of his questions, and playing games, the guides made this an unforgettable experience. ARC will always hold a special place in our families hearts. The food on our trip was amazing - better than we eat at home most nights!! Everything was fresh and made from scratch - we were completely blown away every meal. Both the ingredients and the cooking are top notch! Once you go down the river with ARC, you will never use another company - and there is no way you will find one better. Our family hope to return to both the river and ARC very soon!

The BEST family vacation! I went on this trip with high expectations after reading the description on the website. I was not disappointed and I would say it was even better than expected. We are a family with 9 and 11 year old boys and a 13 year old girl. All of us had an amazing time. We did the 4 day Hells Canyon trip in July and it was the perfect balance between excitement/adventure and relaxation. Each day was slightly different with tons of fishing on day 1, lots of rapids on day 2, rubber ducky kayaks and swimming on day 3 and relaxation on day 4. The guides were awesome. They are all safe, knowledgeable and fun. They work super hard to make sure you are taken care of and are having a good time. They all have their little area of expertise like fishing, boating or knowledge of the area. They certainly add value to the experience. Thank you guys! And then there is the food! Saying the food was amazing just doesn’t do it justice, it was seriously amazing and we didn’t have to lift a finger. Wow! We highly recommend this trip to other families.

Have Questions?

Everyone does! Here are the answers to our most frequently asked questions:

Where will we sleep?

In roomy tents with thick sleeping pads, pillows, freshly laundered sleeping bags and fitted sheets all included. Tents are even set up before you arrive camp. We call it rustic glamping. A 4 or 5 person tent is provided for every 2 people. Traveling by yourself or you’re the odd man out? Don’t worry, we’ll pack an extra tent for you.

Worried about sleeping on the ground? The thick sleeping pad are inflatable and super comfortable, but cots are also available by request.

What will we eat?

Absolutely scrumptious meals, 3 times a day. Locally sourced food from Idaho farms and made from scratch wherever possible. Hot breakfasts with fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and more coffee and tea than you can drink. Lunches served riverside with fresh grain salads, chips and homemade cookies. Appetizers in the afternoon at camp followed by grilled meats, dutch oven sides, phenomenal salads, and freshly baked bread. To finish the day, hot dutch oven desserts are served at dusk. 

Are you vegetarian, gluten free, or have any other dietary restrictions? Let us know when you book and we’ll pack the right kind of delicious food for you!

What’s the bathroom situation like?

We use a system called the “groover”. It is a metal box with a toilet seat on top, so it feels just like a regular toilet only without four walls around it. It’s always placed in a private secluded area with a “lock” system so no one will walk in on you. A new groover is brought for each day of the trip so they stay fresh.

We promise it will be the best view you’ve ever had on a toilet.
