What surfing is to Hawaii is what whitewater rafting is to Idaho, it’s just a natural part of it. Nothing compares to the awesome outdoor experiences that rafting supplies to anyone of any age. Considering Idaho is the whitewater state, it is in the code of Idaho natives to have at least one trip under your belt. There are several iconic trips to be a part of, one of which is the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. There is no excuse not to go, spectacular whitewater is in everyones backyard all over the state. Whether you live Northern Idaho where the St. Joe, Clearwater, Selway, and Lochsa rivers are. Or the Southwestern part of the state where the Payette, Owyhee, Boise, and Bruneau stretches are as well. It goes to show that you have a put-in to a river somewhere close. So plan a trip this summer to some of the worlds greatest whitewater stretches.
