Additional Information

Marking the border between Idaho and Oregon, Idaho's Hells Canyon plunges to depths of nearly 8,000 feet between the Seven Devils range to the east and Oregon's rim country to the west. Through this tremendous gorge, the Snake River's warm, clear waters yield some of the best big waves and whitewater rapids in the U.S. Northwest. In calmer sections, the Snake River serves up great Idaho fishing opportunities. Hells Canyon's watery bliss is matched by its stunning rock-scapes and the intriguing remnants of past inhabitants, creating a rich river adventure that's hard to beat. Warm weather, warm water and fun rapids make this a great trip for kids, parents and grandparents of nearly any age.
