Hells Canyon Adventures is great. What an amazing group of people! I have been down the Snake river many times before. Sometimes on my own family trip and other times we go with HCA. I wouldn't go with anyone else. They take care of you. It is a wild and scenic river...things can and do go wrong. Knowing that will make your trip that much better. Think about where you are when you go...you are in the deepest canyon in North America! No cell service, etc. We have had HCA shuttle us back up the river on several of our summer floats. AWESOME ride. And winter trips...those are just plain fun. Not as busy and there is so much wildlife to see. If you are preparing to take a trip down the Snake, please be aware of your surroundings and of what you are planning to do. Plan your trip accordingly and be ready for the greatest ride of your life!!! I love the Snake River...and the people who live and work on the river. HCA! You can't get any better than they are.
