Idaho is mainly a farming state, especially known for its potatoes. However, there is much more to Idaho than spuds! On the western side of the continental divide, the landscape is dominated by mountains, lakes and rivers. Idaho’s history comes from its native tribes as well as the determined pioneers such as the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the early 1800s. Don't miss the Craters of the Moon National Park, a vast ocean of lava flows and internationally recognised as a Dark Sky Park.

Why should I visit Idaho?
The state capital is a spacious, well laid out city with an excellent art museum and impressive State Capitol buildings. However, the Number One attraction in Boise is its delightful River Greenbelt. The Basque Museum is also worth a visit as, perhaps surprisingly, there is a large Basque community in Boise who settled here back in the mid-1900s
Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve
Lava flows sprawl through the plains of central Idaho, creating unique and interesting scenery as well as a home for rugged plants and wildlife. Described as a "weird and scenic landscape", Craters of the Moon certainly lives up to its reputation. The 750,000-acre monument contains a diverse array of volcanic features including volcanic rifts, cinder cones, spatter cones, shield volcanoes and lava tube caves.
Lake Coeur d'Alene
Coeur d’Alene is a pretty town in northern Idaho with good shopping, parks and gives its name to the long winding lake which boasts miles of forested shoreline, sandy beaches, and a myriad of coves and bays that provide a wonderful watery playground. Nearby Wallace provides the chance to ride the Sierra Silver Trolley retracing the area’s mining history whilst in Murray you can explore a living ghost town and try your hand at gold panning.
Sun Valley's year-round outdoor recreation and awesome mountain scenery draw visitors from around the world. Golf, tennis, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and river rafting can all be enjoyed in the summer months as can the summer ice show. Sun Valley was the first destination ski resort in North America and this European style resort is where the chairlift was invented.
Hells Canyon National Recreation Area
Hells Canyon is the deepest river gorge in North America and can be explored in a number of ways. A jet boat out of Lewiston is a popular option alternatively a raft float trip from the more southerly town of Cambridge. If you don’t want to use a boat, you can hike, ride or mountain bike. The Hells Canyon borders both Idaho and Oregon; the Snake River dividing the two states.
Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument
Between Boise and Pocatello, set in beautiful countryside perfect for hiking and boating and bordering the Snake River you will find the lands of Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument and a significant concentration of Hagerman Horse fossils. The Hagerman Horse, an Ice Age mammal, roamed the grasslands of North America before becoming extinct approximately 10,000 years ago.
