This is pure R&R no matter how you define it: rest and relaxation, ranch life and riding, or rafting and really great hiking. A world of Rocky Mountain recreation is right in reach, right when you want it—because you’re on the ranch and you’re on ranch time!
Your base is the acclaimed Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, 900 acres of beauty nestled in the largest swath of protected wilderness in the Lower 48 – the spectacular Sawtooth National Recreation Area. We’ll help you map out fun days in the wilds of Idaho, filled with river rafting, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, hot springs soaking, and fly fishing—always based on your specific interests and energy levels. Innovative chef-prepared cuisine puts a memorable mark on every well-deserved meal, while private cabins boasting a perfect union of historic charm and modern amenities await you at the end of each glorious day.
We can also wrap this ranch stay into a larger Rockies trip that takes in Sun Valley, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, a broader fly fishing quest, or whatever else might be on your Rockies list.
