Hells Canyon Whitewater Rafting on the Snake River


Hells Canyon Whitewater Rafting

Located on the border of Idaho and Oregon, the Snake River points north and heads into the deepest canyon in North America. There the calm snaking river alternates between fun whitewater rapids and calm stretches of relaxing boating. There are no roads that cross the Snake River from Hells Canyon Dam to Lewiston, ID-over 100 miles! That means whitewater rafting in Hells Canyon is in the wilderness. No cars, no traffic, and especially no internet. It is the perfect vacation to get away from it all while spending time with old friends and new. Besides, the Snake River attractions are plentiful, so all you need is the good company. Book one of our Hells Canyon trips now!
