Lewiston Idaho Outdoor Adventures

Hells Canyon National Recreation Area

>Disregard the name- Hells Canyon is a piece of wilderness heaven on earth.  Accessible via helicopter or jetboat, it is America’s deepest river gorge and stretches 75 miles from Hells Canyon Dam to the Washington-Oregon border.  Whitewater rafters, boaters, campers, anglers and hikers will find plenty to on the Snake River that flows through the canyon.

Salmon River

Guided tours of Native American and pioneer settler history and white-knuckle whitewater trips are just two of the offerings in the canyons of the Salmon River.  Adventure companies cater to all budgets and all levels of comfort when it comes to camping (one even offers gourmet foodie trips.)  Fishermen will not want for places to catch a line for Idaho Steelhead or trout and photographers will run out of space on their memory cards before they run out of places to shoot.

Scenic Byways

Hop in the car and hit the road on the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway that begins on U.S. 12 in Lewiston, Idaho. A 202-mile stretch, it covers the winding Clearwater River Canyon, the Nez Perce National Historical Park and the towns of Orofino and Koosikia before splitting into Idaho Highway 13 and U.S. 12. The Elk River Back Country Byway and Gold Rush Historic Byway are also accessible via the Northwest Passage.
