Hells Canyon & Snake River
|Adventure Travel > Hells Canyon Raft > Hells Canyon & Snake River|
Nez Perce Indian legend claims “Coyote dug Hells Canyon with a big stick to protect their ancestors in Oregon’s Blue mountains from the ‘Seven Devils’ across the gorge in what is now Idaho.” Our raft trips through Hells Canyon are journeys through a land rich in myth and geologic wonder. The country is amazing. Rugged rock walls and grassy slopes rise from the water, as you delve into the surging whitewater as it pulses through Hells Canyon. Where boulders and rockslides have rolled into the river, we find the biggest rapids in the Pacific Northwest.
Between the rapids, the Snake River follows a scenic path, where we will encounter black bear, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, mountain goats, deer, and other high desert creatures. The warm water (up to 70°) offers unparalleled fishing. And when it comes to meals, HCR guides do all the camp work and are experts at preparing bountiful and healthy meals. We provide drinks at all times. While on the raft we have cold water, lemonade, sodas, and fruit juices. At camp there is a selection of tea, coffee, cocoa, and drink mixers.

Itinerary At A Glance:Snake River, Idaho, United States
All Snake River trips begin at the Hunter's Inn in Cambridge, Idaho, which is 70 miles southeast of the launch site, below Hells Canyon Dam. Once we leave the launch site there are only two points where a road meets the river and we can take out. The first is Pitsburg Landing, which is 32 miles downstream. All 3-day trips take out here, as well as 4-day trips during July, August, and September. The second take out point is at Hellar Bar, which is 79 miles from the launch.
Our guides do all the camp work and are experts at preparing bountiful and healthy meals. From their ice chests, they produce a seemingly unending supply of fresh meats, cheese, fruits, vegetables, and breads. Breakfast may be fresh fruit, with blueberry sourdough pancakes, or banana nut muffins served piping hot out of our Dutch ovens. We like to think of dinner as a show. Fresh Alaskan Salmon, BBQ tenderloin steaks, Cornish game hens with rosemary, and Dutch oven baked desserts and breads, all artfully prepared in our riverside kitchen. Special diets may be met. The best part is at the end: we do the dishes.
Enjoy hiking, rafting, fishing or - simply relaxing on the river's edge!
