North Idaho High Adventure Program

Enjoy miles of guided whitewater rafting that flows along wilderness back country - at a great value. The Salmon river provides plenty of action while you navigate through stunning canyons on paddle boats and hike an array of historical Native American sites. These trips specialize in team building efforts so they are ideal for all Scout Troops, Venturing Crews, and Explorer Posts.
