Bear Valley Rafting

Bear Valley Rafting

For over three decades, Bear Valley Rafting has been a trusted name for those looking for a whitewater adventure on Idaho’s Payette River. For owner Phil White, it’s more than a whitewater obsession, it’s a way of life.

Bear Valley River Company (Bear Valley Rafting) is the ideal place to fulfill your dreams of a true Idaho whitewater river rafting experience. Bear Valley Rafting is a small town raft company with an unbelievable staff, who love to come to work each day. We pride ourselves on having some of the most experienced guides on the Payette River. Bear Valley Rafting guides are licensed through the Idaho Guides and License Board, First-Aid/CPR certified, and most have taken it upon themselves to be Swiftwater Certified through Sierra Rescue/Rescue 3 International.

Our staff goes through an extensive training program every spring to practice their skills, regardless of their past experience levels. Our guides will show you their passion for whitewater rafting the Payette River through the fun and enthusiasm they bring to their work, but more than anything, through their experience and safety.
