Canyons is proudly Gay Owned and Operated since 2010 and has offered gay rafting since 2004. As a team we advocate acceptance and equality in everything that we do and in ALL aspects of our business. As an equal opportunity employer, our staff represents a balance of gender, choice, youth, wisdom, intellect and creativity.
Annually we offer an LGBT specific trip. This year we bring to you ‘Wine & Whitewater’ on Idaho’s famous Middle Fork of the Salmon, August 22-27, 2017. The Middle Fork is a spectacular float through the largest designated wilderness in the lower 48 states. Enjoy geo-thermal hot springs, exhilarating whitewater, camping among Idaho’s stoic Ponderosa Pine, gourmet food and delicious wines from around the world. By day, choose to play in your own inflatable kayak, join a social paddle boat or relax while taking in the beauty and history on a guided oar raft. From camp, embark on scenic hikes, try your hand at deep pool trout fishing, play games, enjoy time around the campfire or indulge yourself in some solo time.
Traveling down the river for 6 or 12 days, the group becomes a tribal community that moves together day to day, making and breaking camp, sharing food, playing on the water, learning about each other and about the surroundings. It’s a truly unique way to spend time with yourself and other people, sharing space, appreciating the outdoors and embracing the calming effect of being completely unplugged.
With our ‘Wine & Whitewater’ theme this year you can expect to find some new favorites, whether you prefer reds, whites or rose! Our team sommelier will treat your palette to a world variety of old and new world wines, enhanced by our regionally local, 5 star cuisine, prepared fresh for you, by our colorful guides.
LGBT river adventures offer a unique opportunity to be present in nature with all of her wonders. To make stories with new and old friends alike. To explore the river, to be yourself in all of your glory and to smile and laugh with abandon. This trip gives you the freedom to let go of inhibitions and boundaries, knowing that there is no passing of judgement, only sharing of acceptance!
Come join our family! We can’t wait to meet you!
