Plan your Whitewater Vacation!

Because there is nothing like being on the river!

Bruneau River

The Bruneau Canyons offer breathtaking scenery and delightful rapids. In the upper part, there are numerous Class III rapids at medium water levels. The 600-foot vertical canyon walls are absolutely outrageous. These walls are beautifully highlighted by Bruneau Flox, an indigienous wildflower. Although many river runners combine a Jarbidge trip with a trip down the Bruneau, it is possible to do just the Bruneau River. It is more convenient since it can be done in two days; but the shuttle is more challenging.
