There's A Rafting Season for Everyone

Idaho River Rafting

Outdoor activities in Idaho during the summer are plentiful. Idaho favorites include hiking, biking, and river rafting. As you are planning your whitewater adventure, you might be wondering when the best time to go would be. The answer to that question depends on what you want to get out of your trip.

The following time options offer something for everyone. Whether you want exhilaration, a family trip, or prime fishing, you'll find the most fun on Idaho rivers.

For Maximum Excitement

Early summer means high, fast water and endless excitement. From May to mid-June, Idaho rivers are at their peak whitewater, and each trip offers wild adventure. This part of the season is great for thrill-seekers and adventurers but is not ideal for families, as the rivers can be, well, wild.

For All-Around Fun

The peak season for river rafting is during the heat of the summer. Mid-June through August means that the temperatures are sizzling, the days are long, and Idaho river rafting is at its most popular. Peak season offers longer days and calmer waters, so you can take the whole family along for a whitewater adventure.

For the Best Fishing

In early fall, the majority of the rafting crowd has died down, offering quieter trips and great fishing. Early September through October is cooler, and the cooler temps in the evening spur fish to feed more frequently. The result is a serene experience and supreme fishing. If it's a quieter experience you seek, consider this sportsman's paradise season.

Now that you have decided when to go on your river rafting excursion, all you need to do now is figure out how to get there. That's the easy part! Let Caldwell Transporation Company get you there. Contact us to book your trip today!
