If you’re excited about some outdoor fun this summer, you don’t need to go far in Idaho. Since Idaho is well known for its outdoor activities in the summer, there have been plenty of books written and websites built around some of the great things to do when the weather gets nice. One of the great things is that the weather is starting to get nicer and the days longer. That means that things like fishing, hiking, and rafting are just around the corner.

Things to Know Before Going White Water Rafting

So this summer, you’re planning on trying whitewater rafting for the first time! You’re excited but, at the same time, you’re not sure what to expect. After hearing it from your buddies and us here at Caldwell Transportation so many times, you have decided to experience this first hand. The only problem is that you have no idea what you’re doing.

Spring is Here and so are River Shuttles!

Spring is here, time to think about river rafting

Today marks the first official full day of spring, which also means that rafting season is just around the corner. We hope you’ve been preparing as much as we have for the season to start, as we’re eager to get up to our favorite spots like Stanley and raft the Salmon River. As some of you know, we offer a Stanley river shuttle to anyone willing to brave the awesome rapids on the Salmon River during the summer season.

That Time of Year is Fast Approaching

The time of year when the snow melts and turns into the flowing, and eventually raging, rivers of Idaho is fast approaching. Ok, so we know it is still a ways off, but realistically, we’re about a month away from it technically being spring. And with spring comes summer, which will spell white water fun from the many popular river destinations that Idaho has to offer.

Jackpot is Always Still an Option

Get up to Bogus While you Still Can

There is still time to get up to Bogus Basin

If you know Idaho weather, then you know that it is sometimes unpredictable. Weather patterns will make you think it’s turning into spring and then hit you with another freeze when you’re least expecting it. But one thing is certain, and that is the closing date for Bogus Basin. The good news to all this is that you’re still able to get up to the mountain a couple more times as the closing date doesn’t occur until April.
