Lemhi county was the homeland of Sacajawea the famous Lemhi Shoshone woman who traveled with Lewis and Clark thousands of miles from North Dakota to the Pacific ocean.

Experienced Guide, Super Fun Trip
"I can’t speak highly enough about Idaho Adventures - they were lightening-quick to respond to my float trip request, extremely friendly, and very efficient. This set the bar for my expectations pretty high, so I was pleasantly surprised when the in-person contact for our float trip, as well as our actual river experience, took everything up another notch! This was a family float that included two small children, and we felt safe and comfortable in our guide’s capable hands. If you’re thinking about a river trip, call these folks pronto!"

We took a family trip with nine of “the boys” on a 3 day excursion. Everett, Jazz, and Zack are wonderful guides who fit right into our group and became part of the family. They went out of the way to make everyone from age 16 to 73 feel comfortable. The food was unbelievable with cheese and wine plates and salmon and steak…well above what our group of knuckledraggers was used to. The fishing was only okay but we were able to catch and release some every day. I recommend including the inflatable kayaks as they added a new dimension to the rapids and we were able to all try them at some point. I highly recommend going with these guys on any trip and only wish we would have done a longer one. We’ll be back next year.
