The deepest river gorge in North America, Hells Canyon is accessible by jet boat or raft. Those who explore this rugged wilderness will find ancient tribal carvings in the rocks, deserted ranches and closed-up gold mines.

I am just posting because the review option came up. Originally went in October 2016 then returned earlier this year and it was marvelous!! Fresh water, shallow river where you can see the fish swimming. Wasn't fishing season but the small rapids were thrilling and...More
We drove on the Idaho side of the canyon. The road is very good, but winding around curves a lot. It was wide enough for cars to pass each other. The drive is very scenic, but long because you can not go very fast. We...More
We stayed at Riggins, Salmon River Morel- a few mins drive to the visitor centre where u can get maps & information for the drive up to Hell Canyon Heaven gate. I was driving a Nissan rogue & didn't engage in a lower gear- mistake!...More
This was great fun on the Snake River. This canyon is deader than the Grand Canyon which was a surprise for us.As you go down the river, you have Washington on one side and Idaho on the other. We stopped for refreshments on the Idaho...More
It was with some trepidation that I booked this trip on the recommendation of a friend. We flew from the UK in a party comprising 2 adults and 3 teenage sons. It was the most incredible trip we have ever been on, and could not...More
We toured Hells Canyon Recreation Area as a part of a group tour with Globus. We rode Beamer’s jet boat and was so impressed with the captains knowledge of the river and area. We ate lunch at Heller’s Bar and had some great fried chicken....More
An outstanding white water rafting trip with ROW Adventures out of Lewiston, Idaho. Water is dam controlled so there is always plenty of water. This company had the best river guides, accommodating the wide variety of folks in a group of sixteen. Beautiful scenery, good...More

There are approx 5-6 rapids between Pittsburg Landing and Hell's Canyon Dam, and the jet boat moves through them quickly. Probably each rapid is 20 seconds in duration. I would be surprised is it would be a problem. I have gotten seasick EVERY time I've been on boat in ocean, and this trip was no problem.
The half day tour would give you a great view of the canyon, but the full day has stops at some of the ranches along the way and those are SUPER interesting.
One day would be a great amount of time to check out Hell's Canyon. If you take one of the jetboat excursions up into the canyon; I'd recommend the all-day package (Hell's Canyon Adventures are excellent guides). It's... More
One day would be a great amount of time to check out Hell's Canyon. If you take one of the jetboat excursions up into the canyon; I'd recommend the all-day package (Hell's Canyon Adventures are excellent guides). It's slightly more money but the trip is better; more scenery, whitewater and stops at various points of interest and lunches are provided. They generally leave the dock around 8 am and will have you back in town by 5 or so (in time for a nice dinner and and a relaxing local wine before heading down the road again).
This the place I call home and the rugged beauty of this place still never ceases to amaze me! Enjoy!!!
