Welcome to our
adventures in the wild river country and majestic mountains
of Idaho. We wish to share with you the unique beauty,
challenge, and thrill of the Snake and Salmon rivers. Idaho
Guide Service, Inc. is an owner-operated business with over
30 years experience outfitting in Idaho. We specialize in small
groups and custom trips with personalized service. This small
group philosophy is also compatible with our use and care of
the wilderness area. All our expeditions practice ecologically
sound camping techniques. Our appreciation for this country
is matched only by the care we show for it.
All of our equipment is first class. Our inflatable whitewater
boats are custom-designed for us, so we can offer you our
choice of oar-powered or paddle-your-own as you run the river
rapids. Each boatperson/guide selected for our crew is an
exceptional person, a professional in all aspects of guiding,
and much more. All are expert outdoor cooks and have his
or her own specialty. Their enthusiasm, skill, and love of
the river will make your trip one you will long remember.
We can outfit almost any kind of river trip for you and are
especially skilled at designing trips to suit your groups
particular needs. We invite you to share in the warmth
of our campfire and hospitality, and to dine on the delicious
gourmet meals our guides prepare daily.
In addition to whitewater adventures, Idaho Guide Service
also offers Birds of Prey, Fossil Bed, 1000 Springs and other
scenic river excursions. Nordic Spring backcountry skiing
trips in the winter, Steel Head fishing, and Chuckar hunting
fall. No matter what time of year you want to get away, we've
got an outdoor adventure for you.

We look forward to sharing "The Idaho Experience."
