Historical Sightseeing Tours

See Hells Canyon At Its Best

Experience the Snake River Hells Canyon and Salmon River of No Return in Idaho and Oregon and enjoy the beautiful rugged canyons and whitewater they have to offer. Historically, there are multiple old homesteads, mining areas, Native American remnants, and Nationally Registered Historical Structures to visit. Along the trip enjoy wildlife viewing with opportunities to see deer, elk, black bears, world class bighorn sheep, river otters, and occasionally cougars, bobcats, and wolves. For the bird watchers it is a fantastic place to get your fix. It is very common to see such birds as bald eagles, golden eagles, osprey, great blue heron and many more. Additionally, on the hot summer days you can plan on making a swimming stop or two during the day on one of the many sandy beaches the canyon has to offer.
