Each tour begins with a 90-minute scenic flight departing from Boise and voyaging deep into Idaho’s Frank Church Wilderness. From their lofty perch, passengers feast their eyes upon landmarks such as downtown Boise, the Stanley Basin, the Sawtooth Range, and Deadwood Reservoir unfurling resplendently beneath them. The aircraft finally alights at the Sulphur Creek Ranch, where guests can ramble along on a 90-minute self-guided tour, and ranch cooks fete guests with a brunch of eggs, hash browns, applewood bacon, biscuits and gravy, and fresh fruit. After brunch, guests can shoot a round of pool or try their hand at darts.

SP Aircraft

After more than 20 years in business, what began with one aircraft shepherding fishers through the Idaho backcountry has blossomed into a gleaming six-Cessna fleet offering charter service deep into the wilderness. Overseeing the whole operation is SP Aircraft’s founder, Andy Patrick, a charter-industry veteran with many close contacts in the backcountry-outfitter, river-guide, and tour-company arena. The outfit’s trip packages dispense wild majesty and creature comforts in equal measure, much like receiving a foot massage from a grizzly bear. The Sawtooth Air Tour and Backcountry Brunch, for example, begins with a 90-minute flight over the Sawtooth Range, Dagger Falls, and the Deadwood Reservoir and culminates in a multicourse brunch. Meanwhile, the Mackay Bar Overnight Steelhead Fishing on the Main Salmon River trip invites travelers to try their luck on the “River of No Return”—so-called because, unlike most rivers, it only flows one way.

Customer Reviews

This was a great experience. We had a wonderful morning. The flight was absolutely beautiful and our pilot, Brent, was amazing. He was super knowledgable and pointed out all the landmarks to us. It was really amazing getting to see Idaho from above!

My son proposed to his girlfriend while on this lovely outing. I told the owners ahead of time and they prepared a special table complete with flowers and their daughter wrote a message in calligraphy for them (so cute). Over all it had beautiful views, a wonderful breakfast, and memories that they will have forever. Thank you SP Aircraft and Sulfur Creek Ranch!!
