JULY 8-17, 2019
Lewis & Clark, and the River of No Return Wilderness Tour.

Check out your : TOUR ITINERARY.

Meet Lewis & Clark member, John Colter your first night. You can hear the meandering Jefferson River nearby as you relax listening to Mr. Cooulter tell you how he escaped the Blackfeet in 1808, two years after his Expedition. Meet Allen Pinkham, a descendant of Chief Joseph and Red Bear (mentioned in The L & C Journals) and co-author of Lewis & Clark among the Nez Perce. As the sun sets and the moon rises Allen will recite the Nez Perce Creation story. Before your tour ends, he will take you to the birthmark at the “Heart of the Monster.” Allen author of several books will be with you for the duration of your tour. Around your campfire each evening, Allen is eager to share oral stories from several families who met with Lewis & Clark. Rose Ann Abrahamson, great, great grand niece of Sacajawea (Sacagawea), and a descendant of Chief Cahmeahwait (mentioned in The L & C Journals), and Chief Tendoy is a passionate speaker and eager to share her family knowledge. Enjoy a fun evening with Sacajawea’s people as they share a traditional meal, music and friendship with you under a blanket of stars on a warm summer evening. Tomorrow, you will land at the Great Divide. Lewis had gone ahead of the group with a few men. Like these men, with great success, you easily explore and find a source of the Missouri River, and moments later a source of the Columbia River. Lewis wrote he knitted them together in his belly. You can later do what Thomas Jefferson could not but wished for in his famous “Head & Heart” letter. Bring a vile of water back from the source of the Missouri to your most loved one. In a few days, along the banks of the beautiful Salmon River you’ll make the rascal Touissant Charboneau’s Boudin Blanc recipe with “two dips and a flirt.” Your journey takes you past ten rivers with the option to sit by or play in four. Soon you’ll be sitting in chairs in the most pristine river of Eden, with a large beautiful white beach, golden when it goes under the clear water, that no one else but us are likely to be on. You laugh at the contrast of barefoot finely dressed waiters serving you beverages and hors d’eouvres of the freshest ingredients as you wiggle your toes . Read more below or sign up for this tour. Come and bring a friend, many folks come solo too. We can match you with a roommate or ask us about our single supplement rate. Our trips are all-inclusive, except your airfare, gifts, and guide tips. Your small hikes and 5 1/2 days camping and rafting is outfitted and guided by our hand-selected outfitters and guides who are licensed and bonded in Idaho and Montana. Several have been guiding for over 35 years. For those enclined larger hikes are available too. The wilderness you will travel through is limited to only a few participants per day. Seats are limited and fill quickly. Many call this slice of paradise or eden, the “heart of Idaho.” We hope you can join us for a quick tour.

OUR GOAL IS TO: Exceed your expectations of what it means to be on a trip of a life-time!

“two miles below 
McNeal 
had exultingly
stood
with a foot on each
side of this
little rivulet
and thanked his God
that he had lived
to bestride the mighty & heretofore deemed endless 
Missouri.”
[LEWIS August 12, 1805]

 

WE’LL TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU AFTER THAT!
