“the best Snake River and Salmon River rafting trips in Idaho”

Hells Canyon Raft is not your typical Idaho whitewater rafting company. With over 30 years experience, we constantly set the high water mark for the best Snake River and Salmon River rafting trips in Idaho. With our attention to detail, highly trained guides, top of the line equipment, you can expect the trip of a lifetime.

“unparalleled service, attention to detail”

The Armacost Family has been running the best river trips in Hells Canyon for over 31 years. From our home and office on the Canyon Rim we invite you to join us in one of the truly most magical places in Idaho.  Our unparalleled service, attention to detail, high end equipment and veteran guides make us the leaders.   Every turn of the river has a story, which we are happy to tell making your trip more meaningful and memorable.  Our guides are friendly, and fun not to mention professional in every aspect of their work. They lead you to many sights in Hells Canyon, taking you to see ancient rock art and old homesteader cabins, lead amazing hikes, and help you catch the “big one.”

“the best equipment, and experienced river guides”

We send a cargo boat ahead each day to set up a safari style camp. Instead of spending time setting up your tent, you can be hiking, relaxing or teaching your child to fish. Simply put we are the leaders in full service, the best equipment, and experienced river guides.  We have operated solely in the Hells Canyon Region Since 1982.  Let us show you a real Hells Canyon Raft experience.

There are dream trips, getaways, pampered trips, adventure, educational, hands-on, gastronomic, and probably a whole bunch more kinds of trips. But how many trips can boast all of these dimensions, and all without having to worry about your safety, comfort and whether your hair looks okay. Our trip with you guys fulfilled all of this and more. And NO MOSQUITOES! …

From the moment I first met your team, I was greeted with a smile, taken care of with great attention to detail, given through explanations about procedure and safety, and then told fascination tales about the river and its magical history. Their generosity and good spirit made all of us feel that we’d made real friends with whom we could be ourselves – in comfort and ease
