What better way to enjoy this amazing Idaho white water than rafting down the Payette River located in the picturesque Boise National Forest? We can think of only one: bringing your family and friends to enjoy it with you! But whether you come by yourself, or bring a group, whitewater rafting in Idaho is a must for anyone’s bucket list. We believe Idaho has the greatest whitewater on the planet, and we want to share it with you!
At less than an hour from Boise, the Payette River is the most frequently rafted river in Idaho due to the many half-day and single-day white water rafting trips it offers. The North Fork Payette and South Fork Payette are generally reserved for those with more whitewater rafting experience, while the Main Payette is a family-friendly, fun class II-III section, offering great whitewater for less experienced rafters.
