Since 1982 we have outfitted river trips solely in Idaho. From our home and office on the canyon rim we are pleased to tailor a trip to your interests. Hells Canyon Raft offers 2-6 day professionally outfitted rafting and fishing trips. We challenge the myth that adventure travel has to be dangerous and uncomfortable. Instead, we create an ultra comfortable river trip in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Hells Canyon Raft offers 2-6 day trips on the majestic Snake River through Hells Canyon, and the beautiful Lower Salmon River gorge.

After 20 years of weekend trips with 5 other college buddies, we finally decided to commit to the rafting trip we'd talked about for years. After researching a number of other rivers and rafting companies, we found HCR had the perfect combination of location, length and services. We were looking for a fully guided extended weekend relatively near an airport.... More

I took a five-day, four-night rafting trip with HCR in August 2016 with 15 other women. The rapids were fantastic! Our five guides were amazingly knowledgeable about the river, and gave us a trip of a lifetime. They spoiled us by taking care of all of the gear (tents, dry bags, kitchen equipment, etc.) and cooked gourmet meals for us.... More

I went rafting on the Snake River with a group of 15 ladies Aug. 12-16, 2016. Our guides were tremendous! The scenery in Hell's Canyon is breathtaking, and the guides prepared top-notch meals including appetizers. They did everything for us, including setting up and tearing down our tents each day. They were very knowledgeable about the area, helpful, funny, and... More

My five day, four night trip down the Snake River with HCR was top notch. I can't say enough about the energy, friendliness and efficiency of our guides - Court, Bryce, Jocelyn, "Prince" Harry and Chris. They treated us so well and allowed us to have a great adventure, trying out new and challenging things. The food was fantastic as... More

This was our first rafting trip and we had a great time. There were 6 couples on our raft ( family ), and we all loved the experience so much. Top notch service: from the A+++ meals to our camp being set up when we got there each day with appetizers and drinks of any kind waiting for us. The... More

This was our second trip with HCR; my husband and I did the Snake river trip a few years ago. This time I went on the Salmon river trip with my sons (8 and 12 year olds). We loved the trip! Pre- and post-trip arrangements and communication with Kurt and Heidi worked well. The food was great, the tents were... More

Our family of 5, 3 girls aged 13, 12 and 7, went on a 4 day 3 night trip with Kurt and 4 other guides. We were picked up from the airport and driven to a motel closer to Hells Canyon where we spent the night. The motel had great beds and was very clean with an amazing breakfast restaurant... More

Well I am blessed to travel a lot. I've had the privilege of company expense accounts and high end resort travels, which never mattered to me. I've spent a year travelling and living in most of the major national parks. This isn't about me....the point is I know quality and experience in travelling. My 5 day rafting trip was a... More

We did the 5-day trip through Hells Canyon. It was really great, from start to finish. We were bussed by van from the Boise airport to the tiny town of Cambridge, where we spent the night and received our orientation from the owners, Kurt and Heidi. The next day we drove to the put in at Hells Canyon dam, a... More

My wife and I and our 20-something daughter loved this. Hells Canyon is a spectacular place to visit and Hells Canyon Raft has just the folks to take you through. Some of the great things: The guides were knowledgeable and very hardworking. They broke up the day with trips of geologic and historic interest. Being on the river is great,... More
