ABOUT this event:

This event covers two wildernesses, two exciting modes of adventure and two levels of elevation! Unload your personal ATVs or side-by-sides in Dixie, ID and depart on an exciting summer adventure into the heart of Idaho’s backcountry! You will make your way through the Gospel Hump Wilderness Corridor by ATV and transcend down into the Salmon River Canyon to arrive at the historic Mackay Bar Ranch along the River of No Return’s shores. Enjoy luxury accommodations, meals, a full day jet boat tour into the Wild Section of the Frank Church Wilderness along the Salmon River, history, and a good time!

ATV & Jet Boat through TWO of Idaho's Wildernesses!

"This trip is adventurous, educational and unlike any other weekend getaway you typically get to do with your ATV's! Idaho is so unique in that it holds multiple wilderness segments, public land access, and grandfathered ranches and homesteads (as well as backcountry airstrips) that the public is still allowed to venture through via jet boat. Explore whats in your own backyard - all in one adventure packed weekend with awesome accommodations!
