Hells Canyon Rafting, Hiking, Group Trips

As the number and diversity of North Star clients grow, we continue to present a unique spin on the first class outfitted trip we run in Hells Canyon week to week. Hike instead of raft, join a group of women on the river, take advantage of special deals for groups, or seize the opportunity to try a new river with your favorite North Star crew members.

All-Women Rafting Trips

This is your personal invitation, from myself—North Star Co-Owner Tricia Warren—to join us on one of our all-women rafting trips in Hells Canyon. Every year we do our best to put a couple Women Only Rafting Trips on the water. Sometime comprised of our tried and true North Star guests, sometimes just a bunch of Tricia’s personal friends and family, and sometimes a mix of both!!

Bare your bikini, learn to fly fish, enjoy tasty and healthy gourmet meals paired with the perfect wine, try your hand at paddling Class III white water in an inflatable kayak, hike Suicide Point and enjoy cocktails riverside at the end of each day. All with your girlfriends, your Mom, sister, daughter, granddaughter, or any combination there of! My own girls at ages 5 and 8 are already out with me making amazing memories I am sure we will never forget. Call us today for more information!

4 Day Hells Canyon Hiking Trips (Raft Supported)

Instead of floating the Snake River through Hells Canyon, take a guided hike through the wild and scenic section of the Canyon. A guided hiking trip supported by rafts means you can put in the miles hindered by nothing but your water bottle. Hike approximately 8 miles per day on single track trail along and above the river, while rafts transport food and overnight gear downriver to meet you at each stop. Guides lead the hikes and prepare three gourmet meals a day, our lunch raft tracks the group and is available in case you need a break. A separate gear boat heads down river to have our camp site ready and waiting for you to arrive. If you are an avid hiker or just want to plan a vacation that allows you to get some exercise and earn your dinner, this trip is the one for you. Amenities provided by North Star are the same on this trip as all our other full price trips.

Recommended trip length is 4 days. Trips dates available in May and June. Group charters of at least 4 people needed, or add to a trip listed. Call to book a date today!

Lower Owyhee Rafting Trips

The Owyhee River is a small spring run-off river winding through a remote desert canyon. Steep red cliff walls and amazing rock formations set a mood of unsurpassed solitude within this canyon’s unique scenic beauty. Found south of Boise, ID near the border of Oregon and Idaho, it is like none other you will find anywhere. The Lower Owyhee features the most beautiful and varied terrain in the Owyhee Canyonlands, including the spectacular Chaulk Basin and Iron Point Gorge. This stretch of river offers Class III-IV white water, hot springs, pioneer history, & and petroglyph sites.

Lower Canyon trips are outfitted with oar rafts, paddle rafts, and inflatable kayaks. Famous rapids include Whistling Bird, and Iron Point (Class IV), and there are plenty of fun medium sized rapids and drops. This section of the Owyhee has been protected as a National Wild & Scenic River since 1984. Wild river designation is intended to protect the river along with its outstanding remarkable scenic, recreational, geologic, historic, archaeological, fish and wildlife values. Add this river trip to your repertoire and join our North Star crew on this unique spring Owyhee River rafting trip.
