Spokane River

Only a few cities in all of the United States have a river flowing through their heart. Spokane is blessed by the gorgeous Spokane River gorge that is a hidden wilderness within an otherwise urban landscape.

Most people only see the Spokane River as it flows by the opera house, through Riverfront Park and over the dramatic Spokane Falls. But, just another half mile downstream, the river begins a meandering eight mile journey through a canyon of mostly undeveloped land, including Riverside State Park. The most spectacular section of this journey takes you through the dramatic rock formations of the Bowl & Pitcher. As you gaze upon towering Ponderosa pines, huge formations of basalt cliffs and watch Osprey and eagles soar overhead, it's hard to believe that you're within minutes of downtown.

Later in the summer, when the whitewater section gets too low to raft, our lower Spokane River gentle float provides boaters with an easy float where you can experience nature and beautiful scenery. There are plenty of "pools" between the mellow rapids and riffles that allow you to enjoy the warm Spokane River and jump out of your raft or sit-on-top kayak for a dip! We float from the Peaceful Valley about four miles downstream to the TJ Menach Bridge where it spans the Spokane River near Spokane Falls Community College.

We encourage large groups and families to come on our rafting trips in Spokane too! Contact us at 208-770-2517 or 866-836-9340, and one of our Adventure Consultants will be happy to arrange something for your group!
