We love river rafting! The Clark Fork was perfect for my kids' first rafting experience. Some nice class III waters. The weather gave us clouds and a lil' rain so the water was very cool (who would've thunk it for the first of August?) so not much free swimming. Our guide was perfect...informative and fun, kinda cute too. The lunch... More

We just returned home from the 5 day Family Magic Rafting trip on the lower Salmon river. What a wonderful experience we had. The weather was prefect for our 5 days of rafting through the canyons of Idaho. It was just lovely. The guides, Anna, Will, David, Neil, Jonah, Walker, and River Jester Katie, made the trip an amazing experience... More

This is by far the best rafting trip for a family! The guides are experienced and fun. You can float and experience Rapids. You could fall out but you all have life jackets. Halfway though they feed you too. There is a special stop and a small hike. The large pool of beautiful water welcomes you to climb a large... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our white water rafting trip on the Clark's Fork River in Montana. Our guide, Katie, was great! She kept us informed on what was coming ahead of us and how to prepare for it. It was a great day and we would absolutely do it again if we're ever in the area again!

Mom and I will forever remember our 80th and 60th birthday celebration on gorgeous Lake Coeur d'Alene. After a hell-fire day of winds and hailstorms, the skies cleared, the waters calmed, and under the expert guidance of ROW's awesome Gaylen, we paddled our kayak through a misty channel from Blackwell Island to the open lake waters in time for a...
