There’s Something Incredible About These 12 Rivers In Idaho

You already know that Idaho has the most river miles of any other state in the country (over 3,100 miles, to be exact). You also know that Idaho’s rivers are magical, scenic, rushing, and often untamed despite our desert climate, which in itself is a geologic and natural wonder.

But Idaho’s rivers are also a source of life, here. Waterfront towns depend on them for irrigation, recreation, and energy, while our wildlife and flora depend on them to nourish the beauty of our landscape. That’s why with fishing and travel season upon us, it’s time to get up close and personal with just a few of our state’s beautiful rivers – listed here in no particular order.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

We have so many gorgeous rivers to choose from here! Do you have any favorites? Just remember, wherever you go this season to enjoy Idaho’s beauty up close, be sure to share your photos and stories with us!
