Snake River through Hells Canyon Rafting
One of America's greatest rivers has played host to ROW Adventures' guest for over 25 years. If you have not experience the great Snake River, it's big rapids, incredible hikes and history, the country's deepest river canyon with the world's greatest guides...you should not wait any longer!
Hells Canyon on the Snake River in Idaho straddles the borders of Idaho and Oregon and is the deepest river gorge in North America. According to Nez Perce tribal legend, the mythical figure "coyote" dug Hells Canyon with a big stick to protect the tribe's ancestors in the Blue Mountains of Oregon from the "Seven Devils" across the gorge in Idaho.
Our Snake River rafting adventures through Hells Canyon are journeys through a land rich in myth and geologic wonder. Running south to north, the Snake River in Hells Canyon cuts through some of the most rugged, spectacular landscape on earth. Boulders and rock slides have rolled into the river to create the biggest white water rafting rapids in the Pacific Northwest. High-crested waves and paddle-swallowing holes drench us in white water excitement.
Between the Snake River rapids, there's plenty of time to kick back and marvel at the snow-capped peaks that tower more than a mile above. Mountainsides are covered in golden grass and pine forest and we commonly see soaring eagles, ambling bears or wild mountain goats.
Many people come to raft the Snake River because of the bountiful fishing. Common species include trout, smallmouth bass and North America's largest freshwater fish, the white sturgeon. Other people come to learn more about the history of the Native American tribes and early pioneers who homestead here. Everyone enjoys seeing the well-preserved Native American pictographs and swimming in the near-70-degree water.
The best way to see all of Hells Canyon is on our six-day white water trip. If you don't have six days, our shorter Snake River rafting adventures are also a great option.
