        Rafting Hells Canyon on the Snake River, Idaho. I left the house at 4 am, thrilled to finally go on a multi-day Idaho raft trip, especially one on the Snake River’s Hells Canyon. The canyon is North America’s deepest river gorge, at 7, feet, almost 2, feet deeper than the Grand Canyon. Many of these activities rely on the mighty Snake River, whose powerful flow cut through the rock to create Hells Canyon. The Snake River is renowned for big waves and powerful whitewater rapids, making a jet boat trip a thrill for all ages. Things To Know. Hells Canyon can be accessed from the communities of Lewiston, White Bird and Council.

      A whitewater rafting trip on the Snake River in Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America, combines the awesome thrill of class III and IV whitewater with breathtaking scenery, hiking, and wildlife and cultural history viewing opportunities. With a depth of nearly 8, feet, Hells Canyon frames the mountainous border of Oregon and Idaho. Hells Canyon plunges to depths of nearly 8, feet between the Seven Devils mountain range to the east and Oregon’s rim country to the west. Through this tremendous gorge, the Snake River’s warm, clear waters yield some of the best big waves and whitewater rapids in the U.S. Northwest.
