"We had the most amazing, half-day rafting trip with Adventure Idaho. Our guide, Jared, was fun and professional at the same time! The staff is great and our raft was nice. A great experience overall!! Would definitely recommend."

"No relation, came out from Virginia and booked, here, my first white water rafting trip.
An overwhelmingly positive experience!
We came late in the rafting season (Aug) and there was one class 4 set of rapids and a host of others; all fun!
The pacing was on point, with plenty opportunities to swim, chill, or chat. Our guide brought light and levity, and was knowledgeable about the region, our route, and left no doubt as I boarded the raft that I was in good hands!"
"This was my first time rafting and it was SO cool! Jared (our guide) was so awesome! This is the best company in town… they have the nicest staff and fun boats! Ask to ride the pickle fork!!"
We guarantee the unforgettable trip of a lifetime that you will be talking about for years to come!
