What do YOU remember most about your very BEST family vacations?

Is it the scenery? Discovering new things? Learning about history? Getting the chance to challenge yourself or face fears? Or maybe it’s the delicious food you ate along the way.

Chances are, each family member’s answer to that question will be as diverse (and as interesting) as their individual personalities.

When you take a family adventure vacation with Hells Canyon Raft, there’s more than enough to satisfy everyone’s desires and so many different ways to leave lasting memories of the good times shared together.

At HCR, we’re a family too, and we know how precious your time together can be. That’s why we strive to make every detail perfect and give everyone on the trip the chance to explore a wide range of activities and experiences.

There is so much more to a lower Salmon raft trip than what you experience while you’re actually in the raft. (Don’t get us wrong, those Class III rapids are pretty amazing. But that’s just the beginning!)

We’re excited to share this new video about our favorite family memories from our latest river trip:

 

 

There are two ways to enjoy a lower Salmon trip. We offer a 4 day, 62 mile trip or a 5 day, 73 mile trip.

Both options are a great fit for families, mainly because our expert guides are focused on creating memories at every turn. Not only will they guide you safely through the whitewater, but they also prepare gourmet meals (yes, really!) and pack the trip full of fun extras like lighthearted history and geology lessons all along the way, spontaneous games of freeze-tag with the kids on the beach and some of the best ‘raft guide legends’ and fun anecdotes you’ll find anywhere.

Some of the things you might not expect about the trip are some of our favorites:

Sleeping under the stars…

Jumping off cliffs…

Taking a solo turn in a kayak or on a paddleboard…

And of course, the Dutch Oven delicacies that come out of our mobile river kitchen!

As many times as we’ve run the lower Salmon as a family, we always find something new and special to appreciate about it. Get in tune with the rhythm of the river, connect with your family in new ways, and rediscover something about yourself as you explore this special place with Hells Canyon Raft.

Our family history on the river runs DEEP.
