ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

(BPT) - You’re planning your summer vacation and one question keeps popping up in your head: Is this the year you do it? Throw off the mindset of the same-old, same-old and opt for a new vacation destination. Choose to go somewhere you’ve never been and venture toward once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Is this the year? Yes, it is, and here are five reasons your vacation travels to Idaho will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

1. Ride the rapids

If you’re looking to infuse your vacation with a jolt of adrenaline, nothing beats whitewater rafting on the Payette River. Cascade Raft and Kayak welcomes visitors of all experience levels with private and group lessons before embarking on your own scenic, exhilarating journey.

2. High adventure by horse

Idaho is famous for its natural beauty and what better way to see it all then from the back of a horse. Ya-Hoo Corrals, located in the mountain resort town of McCall, offers guided rides, half-day rides and private rides; this allows you to customize your trip to your comfort level. The company has experienced mountain horses that make your ride easy and comfortable, freeing you to enjoy the unique beauty of Idaho’s lakes, meadows and mountain peaks from a unique vantage point.

3. Cascading through the canyon

With wild whitewater rapids and the deepest gorge in North America (7,993 feet), Hells Canyon is aptly named, and there’s no better way to experience it than strapped into your very own jet boat ride with Hells Canyon Adventures. This 10-mile strip of land extending from Oregon to Idaho features rock formations that are 130 million years old, and if you want to take in the scenery at a slower pace, food, rafting and fishing charters are available as well.

4. Brundage Mountain by bike

If you’d like to up the physical intensity of your sightseeing, there’s no better way than traveling by mountain bike. And if you really want to push yourself, the trails around Brundage Mountain are as rewarding physically as they are visually. Brundage Mountain Biking offers a lift service to carry bikers 7,640 feet up to BlueBird Quad where they will enjoy a 20-mile downhill trip through the wilderness in one grand, exhilarating and visually stimulating ride. And if you crave the workout more than the thrills, there are a plethora of other trail options as well.

5. The best of Boise

After a day of excitement you want nothing more than to relax over a delicious dinner and an amazing bottle of wine, and Boise has you covered. Boise is home to a booming culinary culture mixed with upstart craft breweries and a growing wine industry. There are options for any taste so you can tackle your daily adventure and recap the day’s events anticipating a delicious dinner and a savory glass of wine at its end.
