The Helende Section of the South Fork Payette is chalked full of classic Idaho whitewater.  This rafting trip is a good choice for family reunions or trips with younger kids.


Idaho Rafting

The Helende is a fun bouncy ride interspersed with a couple class III rapids, good for ages 5 and up.  Enjoy a riverside lunch at Kirkham hotsprings and a dip in a swimming hole.  This is a perfect section for the first day of a multi day trip, floating into our private camp off the Helende section.
