Points of Interest
With more than 60 percent of the state covered by forest and hundreds of miles of lakes and rivers to its name, Idaho is a recreational paradise. More than eight national forests blanket the state. Some 30 state parks are sprinkled throughout, offering the visitor a wide range of activities and attractions. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing and snowboarding are among the most popular activities here, as well as scenic touring and wildlife viewing. With more than 16,000 miles of rivers and streams, Idaho is a top destination for whitewater rafting. Destinations such as Hells Canyon and Craters of the Moon National Monument attract thousands of visitors every year. A jet boat ride is a great way to experience the rugged Hells Canyon. Another great way to explore Idaho is by taking a tour. Find your ideal outdoor adventure in the Gem State.
