Join on us on this unique 4-day adventure through Hells Canyon. We combine the excitement and comfort of a river trip with the opportunity to explore the birds of this region. There are a variety of habitats in Hells Canyon that support an abundance of bird species. Expert birding guides will help spot the birds while floating, and hiking through the deepest canyon in North America. There are over 106 different species that call Hells Canyon home. Large birds of prey use the canyon for spring nesting. Migratory birds also find safe harbor for raising their young. Explore the side canyons and find various finches, wrens, and other song birds. There is nothing like waking up on the river to the sound of a canyon wren, and the smell of fresh coffee.
