Scenic River Trips

We offer a few scenic river trips in our surrounding area. The three trips we offer are class I and II (flat water, small ripples, dodgeable small rock formations) during our entire full season.

Late April – October *weather and water level permitting

Take any of our scenic river trips and you will never regret it. All are exceptional. Scenic river trips are beautiful, relaxing, and inexpensive. Enjoy the great outdoors. These trips are great for anyone not wanting to encounter whitewater or for families with small children or seniors that don’t want to risk falling out of a raft. *There is a three person minimum on all rafting trips to afford the trip. Customers are welcome to pay a $50 ghost fee to cover the cost of shuttle/guide/gas to make the trip a go for a party of less than 3 or join another couple/group to go out. We will contact you in advance if that is the case.

All trips include: Life Jackets (pfd’s), guide, boat, paddles, shuttle back to vehicle. Full days include locally sourced, homemade lunch featuring fresh garden grown produce grown on site. On both the Coeur d’Alene River and Clark Fork River, your guide does all the paddling!
