Guided Snake River Rafting through Hells Canyon

A guided rafting trip on the Snake River through Hells Canyon is full of awe inspiring geology through the deepest gorge in North America, big whitewater, great hiking trails, and a rich history dating back thousands of years where the history is literally on the canyon walls as we hike along and see Nez Perce pictographs, the remains of Chinese mining claims, and homesteaders cabins. Hells Canyon has so much to offer. Days will be filled with running exciting whitewater, side hikes to explore the history of the canyon, and ending at comfortable camps for you to relax and enjoy good company. Standard trips are 5 days in length, but we can also accommodate 3 day, 4 day, and 6 day trip length options. Be sure to check out our Wine and Food on the River option!

Guided whitewater trips on the Snake River will begin with guests meeting at the Minam Store. The night before we launch guides and guests will get to know each other and final details of the trip will be discussed. In the morning we will shuttle you to Hells Canyon Dam for the start of your multi-day river excursion. For people choosing to join us for 3 days, trips will end 32 miles downriver at Pittsburg Landing. On 3 day trips the shuttle fee is not included in your trip cost and we will help arrange for your vehicle to be shuttled to Pittsburg Landing or arrange a "jetback" for your group to be jet boated back to Hells Canyon Dam. For those opting for a longer float, we will end almost 79 miles down river at Heller Bar. From the takeout location, you will be shuttled back to your vehicle at the Minam Store or you can pay an additional fee to have your vehicle shuttled to the takeout.
