Our five-day Owyhee river trips follow a nice and relaxed pace, similar to a conversation with an Owyhee country buckaroo. You’ll be mesmerized by the redrock cliffs, spires and mysterious caves that line the river, freshwater springs weeping from the canyon walls, and hooded mergansers leap-frogging from one river eddy to the next.
The Owyhee River offers a real chance for personal adventure. You’ll paddle an inflatable kayak or an open canoe and experience nature in a true intimate setting in the Owyhee canyon. We’ll have time for side hiking in secret slot canyons and fun rock scrambles to awe-inspiring views of the big wide open Owyhee Plateau — 12,000 square miles of open space.
Plus, you can count on relaxing in Far & Away’s safari-style luxury camps with all of the trimmings. Sip a distinctive glass of louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone on the river bank before dinner. Every night, fresh organic vegetables and pineapple upside-down cake with coconut cream for dessert — all illuminated by candlelight and solar lanterns.
When you’re ready to sleep, our guides bring hot towels to your private tent all arranged with soft carpeting under foot, elevated beds, cozy flannel bedding and fluffy full-size pillows. Take a minute to gaze at gazillions of stars before your eyes close for a deep sleep. The Owyhee Canyonlands are so big, powerful, and remote, we feel humble and tiny in the whole scheme of things when we leave.
