Hells Canyon Raft and Kayak Rentals

Hells Canyon is one of the classic western river trips and should be on the must-do list for any serious whitewater enthusiast.  This trip is typically done in 3-5 days when run from the Dam to Pittsburgh Landing.  Some folks continue on to Heller Bar but you don’t gain much from a whitewater standpoint and you end up making the logistics significantly more expensive.

We are here to rent you all the gear you need for a great river trip and we can drop the equipment at the Dam and pick it up at Pittsburgh Landing to make it easy. We do not typically shuttle cars for this section and we do not shuttle people. 

All gear drop-offs happen the morning of your launch.
