Come go all the way with us. This is our top of the line trip. Meet us at 7 a.m. for an 11 hour tour tailored to show off majestic Hells Canyon.  This 240 mile round trip includes visits to pioneer homesteads and gold mines.  Along the way, we will stop at Cache Creek, a Forest Service outpost and museum to enjoy a continental breakfast.  Later, we will explore a historical stop and buffet lunch at the Kirkwood historical museum further upstream.   Excitement abounds as we dart in and out of whitewater rapids rated III, IV and V.  Nearby Hells Canyon Dam awaits your visit.  Relax on a beach and enjoy a dip into the refreshing waters of the Snake during our downstream break while enjoying our famous, homemade cookies. Wildlife may be around each bend of the river.  We often see bears, world record class bighorn sheep, deer, elk, river otters, bobcats and occasional cougar and wolves.  This is a bird-watchers mecca as eagles soar with locked wings observing the slightest detail below. This is our most popular tour for those wanting to spend the entire day with us as we pass through the deepest part of Hells Canyon, the deepest gorge in North America.
