The Mighty Snake River Is Idaho’s Longest, Traveling 1,078 Miles To The Columbia River

The Snake River is so much more than just a river. It’s a symbol of Idaho’s wild and scenic beauty, a destination for adventure, and one of the most incredible natural wonders in the northwest. Stretching across the entirety of the Gem State before emptying into the Columbia River, this beloved river in Idaho is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Photos of the mighty Snake never fail to blow us away, but nothing compares to seeing its beauty with your own eyes.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
