Lewis & Clark Tour in Van or Horseback Trail Riding….
Come discover Lewis and Clark in Idaho. A Lewis & Clark Idaho vacation with Rawhide Outfitters offers a relaxing scenic Lewis & Clark Van tour or a wilderness horse trail ride where you can travel the historic trails and enjoy a delicious home made picnic lunch with Rawhide Outfitters as your tour guide. The Lemhi and Salmon River Valleys offer a rich historic journey of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Opportunities to retrace the steps of Lewis and Clark in areas where little has changed since they were here, along with the Lemhi Valley being the home land of Sacajawea, continues to provide one of the most rewarding and authentic portions of the entire Lewis & Clark Trail.
The Corps of Discovery entered the Lemhi Valley on August 13, 1805 with the intent of exploring the feasibility of navigating the Salmon River in hopes of reaching the Pacific Coast. They wisely decided that no dugout canoe could safely navigate the Salmon River rapids, so they changed their course and opted for a somewhat less hazardous, but equally difficult dry-land route.
At the time of the Lewis and Clark Bi-Centennial in 2004 the Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service issued permits to Rawhide Outfitters allowing us to conduct history of Lewis and Clark tours to aid those interested in one of the most remarkable and productive military expeditions and scientific explorations in American history. Please allow us to guide you in retracing the journey of Lewis and Clark steps of long ago with either a van tour on Lemhi Pass or horseback trail riding at Wagonhammer Springs.
