As you already know, on August 21, 2017 a Total Solar Eclipse will occur. The sun will disappear behind the moon completely causing the sky to darken, temperatures may drop, and only a ring of light to be visible around the dark moon. In the path of totality, the moon will fully block the sun causing it to feel like twilight.
Hells Canyon in located in the 99th percentile of obscuration, just outside of the path of totality, and a great location to view the total solar eclipse.
The Snake River Valley is one of the best spots for viewing the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse according to Thrillist:
“Seeing the eclipse in the great out-of-doors might make it feel like a more transcendent experience than in a big city. For drop-dead gorgeous scenery and recreation, no place tops the Snake River Valley. This region…has some of the best whitewater rafting in the northwest”
Starting on August 20, 2017, a once-in-a-lifetime whitewater rafting trip will begin:
- Floating down the Snake River
- Scouting the best possible location to view the eclipse the following day
- “Glamping” alongside the river with a 3-course dinner
- Waking up to the sun and enjoying a full breakfast
- Waiting for the moon to cross over the sun to view the Total Solar Eclipse
And of course, more days of whitewater rafting and fun follow. Click here for more information on our multi-day river trips.
