Sunday Funday Loop Tour June 14th

It’s one of our annual favorites, traveling 79 miles round trip and hitting the best of the rapids then pausing for a picnic lunch (we provide!) on the beach. Its the perfect way to spend a Sunday, relaxing on the river with a cold drink.


See the beautiful and scenic Hells Canyon as well as the Blue Canyon, Snow Hole Canyon and the Green Canyon of the Salmon River. It’s two tours in one!

The Loop Tour can only be run when the river conditions are at a very specific flow. This usually happens only once or twice a year. Don’t miss out! Call or email us for more information! 800-469-8757
