If your looking for a real rugged adventure, you've come to the right place. Our trip to Vancouver was tremendous. No fluff and puff here. But that's what we wanted. Excellent whale viewing despite rain. The trip was everything we asked for!

I did 2 trips in one week with Row Adventures. One was a river float, the other a circuit on kayak around Lake Coeur d'Alene. In both cases, they had thought of every detail and made the entire trip effort free (mentally - good workout physically!). This allowed me to really focus on the beauty of the surroundings. The guides... More

Very fun one day river rafting trip. The guides were great, food good, and scenery great. Would have liked more white water but no one could provide that this late in the season in the area we were in. Will definitely try again.

Guide was great, river was low but beautiful, great lunch.. I was in the area for a business trip and had an extra day to enjoy the area. They provided all the equipment and the guide was very helpful. It was my first trip on the St John and loved the experience

Our flight got cancelled and we had to drive from Las Vegas to Couer d'Alene (1100miles)and we missed the first day of our ride. Everyone at row went above and beyond. They went to spokane to get our bikes. Made sure everything else within their control went perfect.

We started in Spokane, rode to Coeur D'Alene Idaho, and then the grand finale Hiawatha Trail. You ride at your own pace, and just enjoy the great outdoors. The luggage was always at the hotel when we arrived. Perfect vacation. All of the staff was pleasant and extremely helpful. We did the 6 days, and it wasn't long enough for... More
