8 Reasons To Go Overnight Whitewater Rafting
1) Get away from it all.
No bosses calling, emails buzzing, or morning alarms. There’s no cell service on the Snake River and Salmon River and that means it’s a great time to decompress and take a break from modern life. Wake with the sun, sleep with the stars, and raft when it’s nice and hot.
2) Bond with your friends, kids, brother, mother…
Jump into a whitewater rafting adventure and I promise you, you’ll bond with your trip-mates. Saving your buddy from slipping out of a raft in a rapid, helping your child catch a fish, or inflatable kayaking with your sibling will create a stronger bond than a city experience ever could. Memories that are talked about for a lifetime are made on rafting trips.
Our Salmon River Whitewater Rafting Trips are perfect for big families, big groups, and smaller kids who’ll love the big sandy beaches. Our Hells Canyon Rafting Trips are great for anyone who wants to get out there and explore the deepest canyon in North America.
3) It’s a good bang for your buck
The price tag of an overnight whitewater rafting trip can look steep, but these are all-inclusive vacations: 3 Day, 4 Day or 5 Day Hells Canyon rafting trips where we take care of it all. There are no extra expenses or hidden fees of a standard vacation (and it’s nearly impossible to spend money while in the deepest canyon in North America). They are full days of entertainment with guides to show you the best spots around, 3 scrumptious home cooked meals a day (plus appetizers, desserts and snacks), happy hours, games, fishing, hiking, and much much more.
4) Take a big breath of fresh air
Nothing beats that fresh mountain air.
5) Feel like a kid again
When was the last time you went on an adventure? Tried something new? Held a water gun? Or laughed so hard you cried? Whitewater rafting is an adventure brings out adrenaline.
6) Eat like a king (or queen)
We don’t joke around when it comes to food. Our food is tried, tested and then tried and tested some more. Weare obsessed with putting the best rafting food out on our river tables. We have a catering and restaurant background and we pack that quality right into the rafts. Homemade freshly baked cookies? Check. Fresh baked croissants with chicken salad? Check. Fall off the bone Pineapple BBQ Chicken? Check. Hot breads every night? Check. Homemade desserts like Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Cake? Yup. We make meals that don’t weigh you down, but fill you up for the adventure of a lifetime.
7) Happy hour anyone?
Who can say no to an ice cold beverage, cocktail, mock-tail, beer or shirley temple after a hot day on the water? We make a different specialty cocktails every night with appetizers to boot. We highly recommend enjoying these sitting riverside with your toes dipped in the water.
8) Those stars!!!
Deep in the wilderness of Idaho, there’s no light pollution from big cities or even little towns. The sky is vast and dark and filled with thousands and thousands of stars. Staring up at the sky from the depths of Hells Canyon with it’s huge canyon walls, these stars will knock your socks (or Chacos) off. We provide tents, but most end up pulling their cushy sleeping pads out of them and sleeping under the stars. There’s nothing like rolling over in the middle of the night, catching a glimpse of the star-studded sky and trying your hardest to stay awake for just a moment longer to gaze above.
