Whitewater in Idaho

There is so much whitewater in Idaho that it’s often ranked in different outdoor magazines’ “Best of” categories.

Whitewater in Idaho

It is such a big deal that Boise built its own Whitewater Park right in the center of town.  One of the first adjustable river waves globally, kayakers, surfers, and boogie boarders take to the rapids throughout the year to catch a wave.

In summer, the weather reaches the perfect temperature to set the stage for some wild whitewater adventure, whether kayaking for the day or river rafting for the week.

Along scenic route 55 is the Payette River. Locally known as “The Main,” this section of the Payette provides varying levels of challenging whitewater up to class III rapids. The North and South Forks provide adrenaline-pumping class IV and V rapids. 

The Class IV Middle Fork of the Salmon River outside of Stanley, Idaho, made the 10 Best Whitewater Rafting Destination IN THE WORLD by tripsavvy.com in 2019. 

A trip down the Snake River’s Class III-IV rapids through Hells Canyon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  And as the snow melts in the Bitterroot Mountains in Northern Idaho, the rushing waters of the Selway and Lochsa River offer challenging rapids for experienced boaters.

With several rafting adventure companies throughout the state, it’s easy to reserve trips lasting from a couple of hours to several days with memories that will last a lifetime.  Whitewater in Idaho takes river sports to a whole new level.
