whitewater rafting on the Lochsa riverWhitewater Rafting on the Lochsa River*

Few whitewater rafting trips anywhere on earth offer as much continuous, explosive whitewater as Idaho’s Lochsa River (pronounced Lock-Saw). This full day rafting trip is big white water that satisfies the appetite for thrills for intermediate and expert rafters. Some rivers are big and slow while others are fast and technical. The Lochsa combines the best of both – it’s fast, technical and has a big volume of water. This makes for raft-smashing waves, big hydraulics and holes, and paddler-bashing excitement. Add supreme Idaho mountain scenery, talented guides and great service and you have one of the best whitewater rafting trips in the world.

*Other Whitewater Rafting trips are available on the Salmon River for younger or less adventurous rafters, contact us for details and seasons.
