Beamers Hells Canyon Tours ferries passengers through the vacillating rapids of one of the deepest river gorges in North America. Along nearly 200 miles of majestic landscapes and American history, certified tour captains delve into detailed narratives on geological landmarks, Native American history, and how U.S. mail delivery developed from horseback to the modern-day jetpack. Wine-tasting and brunch cruises complement degustation with stunning scenes of mountain ranges, rivers, and rare glimpses of local wildlife foraging for food or preparing their tax-return forms, and fishing charters let anglers test their mettles against the river’s crafty steelhead, sturgeon, and bass.
Serenity Stables & Event Facility’s five acres of land are dotted with a regulation-size arena, covered stalls, and indoor facilities, creating a horse-riding haven for equine enthusiasts of all ages. Experienced, encouraging instructors lead riding lessons, which can be tailored to meet the needs of everyone from first-timers to professional cowboys hoping to learn the secret of galloping into the sunset without squinting. Teachers inform pupils about basic Western and English riding techniques, roping, queening, flags, and barrel racing. Serenity Stables also offers full boarding services and rents out their facilities for dances, musical events, birthdays, and interventions for oats-addicted unicorns.
Snake River Adventures makes the scenic waterways of the Snake, Salmon, and Clearwater rivers accessible to outdoor enthusiasts and curious sightseers alike. Licensed jet-boat captains ferry groups through natural wonders, such as Hells Canyon—America's deepest and most inaccurately named river gorge—and manmade locales including the Kirkwood Historical Ranch and museum. Hunting and fishing expeditions may be chartered to snare the bass, trout, steelhead, and sturgeon swimming the waters as well as the big game roaming the shore. Comfortable camp may be made at Historic Sheep Creek Ranch—furnished with wood cook stoves and oil lamps—or the Kirby Creek Lodge bed and breakfast.
