Families on the River

Spending your days braving whitewater and your evenings playing games, fishing, telling stories around the campfire will bring your family closer than ever. It is amazing how quickly the lack of electronics and everyday distractions begins to relax the whole family and create new and fun conversations. A river trip truly offers a unique opportunity to bring families together.

Whether you are fishing for trout with your children, star gazing with your spouse, or watching wildlife like big horn sheep or river otters with your children, your sense of adventure and serenity will grow throughout the trip.

While parents are enjoying a good book or a nice hike after an exciting day on the river, children will enjoy time to explore, swim or just run around.

Boundary offers several boating options throughout the day to please every family member. For those that are high energy, a kayak can be a great option through the calmer sections of the river. Paddle boats are great for family adventure time and for good arm strength. After you are done with those options you can hop on an oar boat and enjoy a little relaxation.

Boundary suggests that children be at least 8 years old during high water and 6 years old at low water. We also recommend that they have experience with swimming and being outdoors.

“I absolutely love rafting in Idaho. That’s why my special place is Idaho!…There were a lot of boats. Three queen boats, one paddle boat and one sweep boat. My favorite rapid was Kramer. It was the biggest class 4 rapid…I saw a lot of animals on the river. I saw a bear, two bald eagles, mountain goats, and big horn sheep!”
