If you’re interested in getting out on the water on an exciting white water rafting adventure, the team at Rocky Mountain Elk Ranch is here to help. While we don’t offer guided rafting trips, we are happy to recommend some companies that do and provide you with additional insights into white water rafting in Idaho.

Why Go White Water Rafting in Idaho?

Idaho and Wyoming boast an abundance of stunning rivers that provide the perfect playground for white water rafting enthusiasts. The combination of pristine waters, challenging rapids, and jaw-dropping landscapes make this region a haven for outdoor adventurers seeking an adrenaline rush. There are few places in the U.S. that offer such a plentiful and diverse collection of white water rafting opportunities.

When it comes to white water rafting, safety should always be a priority. Fortunately, there are several experienced outfitters and adventure companies operating in Idaho and Wyoming that offer guided tours. These professionals possess extensive knowledge of the local rivers, understand the nuances of navigating rapids, and provide top-notch equipment and safety gear. Whether you’re a seasoned rafter or a first-timer, their expertise ensures an enjoyable and secure experience.

Recommended Guided White Water Rafting Trips

With the importance of safety in mind, we have two companies that offer guided white water rafting trips that we are happy to recommend. The first is Mad River Boat Trips, which offers you-paddle rafting trips (meaning guests get to paddle) along the Snake River. Based in Jackson Hole, they conveniently offer several rafting trips every day. Choose between a small boat, which can accommodate up to eight people or a classic raft which seats up to 16. No matter which you choose, everyone ages six and up can enjoy an exciting and safe adventure.

We also recommend Wilderness River Outfitters, which specializes in river trips in Central and Southwest Idaho. For over 30 years, Wilderness River Outfitters has helped guests explore some of the most gorgeous scenery in the U.S. With a myriad of different adventures to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
