The adventure takes 12 bloggers and social media influencers into the backcountry of Idaho. There they will spend 6 days of backpacking and whitewater rafting. This adventure takes them down trails that pass through the highest peaks of the Seven Devils and to the lowest depths of Hells Canyon.
How It All Started.
Hell Hike and Raft is a 6 day backpacking and white water rafting adventure through Hells Canyon in beautiful northern Idaho. Parker from Americas Rafting Company emailed Adam from Hiking The Trail with a simple idea. Lets get a group of outdoor adventure enthusiasts who are active on social media together and take them on an epic adventure.
The 2014 Adventure was such a huge success that Epic Social Adventures was formed. An organization dedicated to recreating the Hell Hike and Raft experience. With the help of Americas Rafting Company and our other partners we will continue to provide epic adventures in the Idaho backcountry for years to come.
About Americas Rafting Company.
In 1985 the Arrien family took their first whitewater trip down Hells Canyon. It was at that point that Kent Arrien (Parker’s father) knew rafting would be a large part of his family’s life for generations to come. As a young man, Parker Arrien grew up with the anticipation of spring as the snow started to melt and the rivers rise the Arrien house became abuzz with friends and river guys.
“I grew up running many of the rivers the Western United States has to offer. After leaving home for college I decided to seek out summer guiding opportunities on what I believe to be the most beautiful and rewarding rivers Idaho has to offer: Hells Canyon of the Snake River, and of course the renowned Salmon River, “river of no return” (Parker says). 10 short years later Parker Alongside with his wife Becky now own and operate Americas Rafting Company.
