The Deal

$49 for a standup-paddleboard package (a $104 total value)

  • Two-hour standup-paddleboard lesson (a $70 value)
  • Two-hour standup-paddleboard rental (a $34 value)

During a two-hour lesson, a professional guide demonstrates how to balance atop and steer the board. Students then set out on a brief nature tour, listening to facts about the area while keeping an eye out for wildlife such as blue herons, ospreys, and bald eagles. A two-hour rental period enables them to continue exploring with their board, paddle, and personal flotation device.

ROW Adventure Center

When you're rafting with ROW Adventure Center, you can float leisurely down a stretch of river, stopping to get out and swim when the mood strikes—or, you can conquer the Devil's Toenail. The oddly named segment of rapids is on the Spokane River and constitutes part of a whitewater rafting trip through the river's lower gorge.

It's one of many scenic locales that the company's guides visit as part of planned day trips or multiple-day vacations. With families in tow, they navigate bike trails and bodies of water throughout Washington, Idaho, Montana, and other surrounding areas, planning excursions that have been lauded by National Geographic magazine.

Many of their voyages take place on the waters of Lake Coeur d'Alene. Here, kayaks set off on picturesque sunset journeys near the pines, and paddleboard tours split their focus between proper balancing technique and nature facts, such as which bird is most likely to mistake you for a gigantic salmon. Guides also lead fly-fishing trips on Coeur d'Alene and St. Joe, accommodating total beginners as well as the advanced anglers.

For those who would rather stay dry, bike trails traverse several miles of historical and awe-inspiring landscapes. The Hiawatha Trail, for example, follows the path of the Old Milwaukee railroad across 7 trestle bridges and through 10 tunnels, including the 1.6-mile Taft tunnel. Certain trip packages even cover admission to Silverwood Theme Park, balancing the thrill of ecological exploration with that of riding roller coasters and fighting over the fastest horse on the carousel.
