Idaho Family Vacation

I grew up in Idaho, on the banks of the Snake River.  I was leading my own Snake River Float Trips from the time I was a little kid.  Of course, most of those were on inner tubes and the whitewater was non-existent, but then I discovered what rafting in Idaho was really about.

Idaho whitewater rafting is an amazing experience.  You can brave Hell’s Canyon on the mighty Snake River, or wet a fly on the world-class trout fishery of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River.   The Main Salmon offers one of the best family adventure vacations you can ever take.

Idaho has it all.  Raft through the heart of the largest roadless area in the lower 48.  The Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness was the first wilderness area designated by the U.S. Congress.  Soak in natural hot springs, enjoy world-class whitewater, play and camp on sandy beaches, and disconnect from your hectic world.

To say the least, the alpine scenery found on a Salmon River raft trip or a Snake River raft trip is magnificent.  You really have to see it for yourself.

Brian started his river career in 1984 and thought it would be a good summer job while in college. Along the way, he met his wife Dena, who also worked as a guide, tried a different career for a while, but came back to the river. His two older children have worked as river guides and his youngest is waiting his turn. Brian now serves as President and CEO of Western and is grateful, every day, for the wonderful people with whom he gets to work.
