This company is tops!!!! I have never been cared for so much! Owner Lauren not only replies almost instantly to any question you may have, she also provides incredible food...think 5-star quality. The river guides (Bob, Kyle, Wyatt, Kevin and David) were equally amazing. They were very attentive, caring, hard-working, conscientious, respectful, punctual, kind and beyond helpful. They are also incredible chefs. We will treasure this experience for the rest of our lives. This is the first review I've ever written more than a sentence....this company earned my review a million times over.

My friend and I just completed the 4 day Hells Canyon trip with America's Rafting Company. Five stars all the way around. The food was superb, the guides made things easy in every way. Loved the guides as they were great guys helping us with everything with a smile and a great attitude. Once or twice I made a mess of fishing line. "No Problem" they said, "hand me the rod" and they took that rod out of my hand and put another one in my hand before I could say "thank you." Kevin, Wyatt, Kyle, Bob and David, you guys TOTALLY Rock. Thank you for the opportunities for the stops to stretch and do short hikes up to the canyon walls to see Petroglyphs and old ranches, etc. Those were fun. You guys were also amazing with the young guys in helping them to learn to fish in one case and helping the two boys that knew how to fish improve in two other cases. If you have kids and think they might enjoy this kind of thing, do not hesitate to bring them along. We had boys aged 10,11,13,15 and a 17 year old young lady and they all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. The three younger boys were swimming, fishing and enjoying themselves immensely. Again, this was quite incredible. I caught and released fish like I never have before.

We opted for the 6-day Hell’s Canyon adventure-it was spectacular. I’m an experienced river rafter and this outfit is top-notch. This is a glamping trip, so if you want to work hard, set up your own tent and haul your gear, it’s not for you! 🤣 Each day was a little different-the water is jazzy-rapids super thrilling but the scenery, time in camp, and the FOOD made the trip very special. Co-owner Lauren, a professional caterer, makes everything from scratch. The guides are amazing at putting it all together and they use a tower of Dutch ovens to make baked goods every day!!! Wonderful, healthy, super tasty and beautiful meals. It is a magical thing to have absolutely fresh delicious food from day one to day six—how do they do it?! I give them 6-stars!

Absolutely amazing trip. The guides were incredible, they were all so amazing, genuinely fun to be around and did an awesome job. Can't say enough about how awesome the trip was. Oh and the food, I'd go back tomorrow just for some more!

Over the top! My teen aged granddaughter and I took a 4 day/3 night trip through Hell's Canyon with America's Rafting Company--the trip of a life time. Excellent from beginning to end. The canyon is gorgeous, full of history and fabulous water. This canyon is famous for the rapids and they do NOT disappoint. Jarrett, co-owner with his super chef wife, Lauren, knows and loves this river, allowing all to feel safe and comfortable on the big water. Enough that, my grand and I took a double kayak through some serious rapids with confidence, loving every moment. This team is the best--skillful guides, super chefs, friendly and fun! AND they do EVERYTHING--unloading/set up and break-down of camp, fabulous meals, fun cocktails and help with anything you need . When you hit camp your tent is set up and snacks are waiting, traveling with them is like staying at a 5 star resort.

Great trip from beginning to end. I did the 4 day Hells Canyon trip with my 2 daughters (10 and 13) and we had a great time. The river was beautiful and we wanted for nothing. All 5 of our guides were great and did everything they could to insure we had fun (they even brought mac n cheese for my picky 10 yr old). The fishing was great and fast paced, our boat guide Kyle was very helpful in putting us on the fish and making sure my daughters had a blast. Thanks Kyle, Wyatt, Kevin, Bob, David, Lauren and Jarrett for a great trip. Highly recommend America's Rafting Company.

Our trip was AMAZING! The guides were outstanding. They each went above and beyond what I expected. They made the trip extra special. They worked hard to get us the best camp sites each night. They were prepared for the rain that came our way. The food they prepared was delicious and healthy, not at all what I would consider to be "camping food". There were so many special touches on this trip, I can't possibly name them all. This was Glamping at its finest! I highly recommend this company to anyone wanting an outdoor adventure!

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!!

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.
