“Fun place to try new things.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2011

I took a two hour paddle board lesson/tour on Lake Coeur Alene. My guide explained things well and was laid back. She did a good job of working with people at the level they were at. I really enjoyed the paddle-boarding itself too! It was physically challenging yet relaxing at the same time.

“Great sunset kayaking tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

We did the sunset kayaking tour and it was great for beginner kayakers. We saw several eagles and osprey. Not for the serious kayaker. We only paddeled about 1.2 mile out and then back again. Great sunsets.

“Fantastic Date Night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

Last minute search for something unique for evening out with wife -- the sunset kayak tour complete with champagne toast was a great Saturday evening adventure. Petris and Tirtza were great hosts/guides. Guided tour included great tidbits about local history and had chance to see incredible bald eagles.

“An awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2010

Biking the Hiawatha with ROW was a highlight of our vacation. Terrific guides, a small group, and the tunnel/trestle combination is unique.

“The Bitterroot Bonanza was a great adventure.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2010

This was our 3rd anniversary vacation and it was a wonderful adventure. Lisa was excellent in helping us plan the trip. She was very helpful and quick to respond to emails. Our guides, Joey and Isaac were amazing leaders and so enjoyable to be with. The entire trip was well organized by all involved. The scenic rides were breathtaking and staying in the Coeur d'Alene resort was fantastic. The guides for kayaking and white water rafting were delightful as well. All the activities were fun and suitable for all fitness levels. All the guides were knowledgeable and had great attitudes. We had a wonderful trip and have no complaints or suggestions.
