Welcome to Idaho,

The Gem State!

Welcome to Idaho, where a combination of beauty and diversity make this state a great place to visit, live and play. Adjacent to Washington and Oregon in the Pacific Northwest, Idaho boasts a variety of landscapes from forests to deserts, and rugged mountains to broad farmlands.

Outdoor recreation is a vital part of Idaho culture. Home to premier ski resorts, white-water rafting and camping, the wilderness calls to visiting explorers. Hell’s Canyon and the Salmon River boast some of North America’s finest rafting and kayaking opportunities with Riggins as the state’s informal white-water capital. Don’t miss Shoshone Falls which plunges down rugged cliffs from a height greater than that of Niagara Falls. The Craters of the Moon and the Bruneau Sand Dunes offer unique desert beauty.
