White Otter Outdoor Adventures

Hello White Otter Guests, Fans, and Supporters! Yes, we are open for guided raft trips starting June 12! We cannot tell you how stoked we are to be back in Sunbeam, living outside, and enjoying the Sawtooth Wilderness. Nothing beats the “stay-at-home-blues” like a day on the river! To ensure the safety of our guests, employees and community, we are changing some of our operational procedures. We encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions. We’re happy to work with you to meet your wishes and desires. Here in Sunbeam we are lucky to live steps away from the river. This gives you the option to book private launches and trips. Our guides will meet and outfit you outdoors before walking to the river. We’re glad to work with you to accommodate your group’s needs. All bookings are completely refundable this year. WHITE OTTER OUTDOOR ADVENTURES – SUNBEAM, IDAHO Annually voted Best of the Valley since 2008  White Otter is undisputedly the locals’ favorite rafting company. We are the only company located at the put-in, which means no hot and crowded bus ride to and from Stanley. We love what we do, and it shows! OFFERINGS:  …
