Superlative Idaho Adventure April, 2008
COEUR D'ALENE, ID – Superlative Idaho, a multisport adventure vacation from ROW Adventures, has been named to National Geographic Traveler magazine's 2008 Tours of a Lifetime. The magazine's editorial team combed the world to find the 50 most authentic, innovative, best-guided and most sustainable trips for its third annual list.
Superlative Idaho traverses the Gem State from south to north and is one of just three U.S. trips featured. Highlights include a three-day whitewater rafting trip through Hells Canyon, North America's deepest gorge; hiking Mount Borah, Idaho's tallest peak; and sea kayaking Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho's largest and deepest lake. Air taxi transportation throughout the trip offers outstanding views of Idaho's diverse topography and wilderness.
“We were thrilled to discover that many outfitters share our vision that travel should ultimately not be acquisitive and superficial but connect us more deeply to the planet and to the people in it,” said Norie Quintos, senior editor at National Geographic Traveler magazine. “The other wonderful thing we discovered is that one doesn’t necessarily have to rough it to travel authentically and sustainably.”
2008 marks the third consecutive year that ROW Adventures has had a trip named "Tour of a Lifetime." The full list is in the May/June issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine.
"Idaho is one of the unsung states in the west," said Peter Grubb, founder of ROW Adventures. "With more than 3,500 whitewater river miles, dozens of mountain ranges and the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states, Idaho has tremendous adventure travel appeal. Superlative Idaho showcases some of the many great destinations available right in our own backyard."
Trips accommodate up to 12 guests and have limited departures in July and August. Visit www.ROWadventures.com for a detailed itinerary and trip dates.
