Whitewater Rafting and River Float Trips

The River Dance Lodge is situated near three of the original eight Wild & Scenic Rivers protected by Congress in 1968. ROW Adventures (our parent company) is licensed to guide whitewater rafting trips and float trips on each of these rivers. Together, the Lochsa River, Selway River and Clearwater River offer exciting whitewater for every skill level. Whitewater rafting trips can be enjoyed on their own, added to your stay or booked as part of an adventure package.

Lochsa River

This is our wildest whitewater trip. Class IV+ rapids are found on this early season river. Huge, raft pounding and paddle bashing fun. Though it's not required, we do recommend previous whitewater rafting experience to take on the mighty Lochsa. Lochsa whitewater rafting trips require a minimum of six paid spaces to run. If we have less than that we will substitute this activity with another.

Lower Selway River

This is the middle ground river. The whitewater is a little more exciting than the Clearwater, but not nearly as intense as the Lochsa. The Lower Selway is known for its lush beauty and is a good trip for family rafting. Departures on the Selway are daily (based on availability) in the month of June.

Clearwater River

Ideal for families and first-time river rafters. The Clearwater is a Class II, big water river with a gentle current. Formed by the confluence of the Lochsa and Selway, the Clearwater is available to float all season long but we typically do not start running trips until July 1st. By August, water temperature is highest and current the slowest.
