Trips for Everyone!

Come to the Sandhills and explore the best-kept secret in Nebraska, the beautiful Niobrara River, Valentine Nebraska. This is where the tallest waterfall in the state exists but there are plenty more worth exploring along the way. It'll be well worth your drive and you'll create some pretty great memories.

 "it's not just a season, it's a lifestyle"

The scenic Niobrara river is a great place for photography, birding, and hiking. The corridor is abundant with wildlife. On occasion, you might catch sight of Mink, River Otter, Leatherback turtles, Blue Herons just to name a few. Bison roam in the pastures above the cliffs along the Niobrara through the Ft Niobrara boundaries and wild elk & deer have been seen while floating the river.

The river corridor is unique being the only place in North America that has at least six Eco-systems merging and converging along 76-miles. It is a spring-fed river that begins in a pasture northwest of Lusk Wyoming and progressively gets wider as it flows east. The scenic river is sandwiched between sandstone cliffs east of Valentine which is where ninety-nine percent of the river trips take place. If you've never experienced a trip down the beautiful Niobrara then you need to put it on a "bucket list" of things to see and do. You won't be disappointed.

Reservations taken over the phone require waiver signatures of all parties involved with the booking. If signatures are not gotten by all people prior to the departure due to their neglegence then it is agreed upon that any trip taken is consent to our terms and conditions. The waiver is available online for your convenience. Thank you and we look forward to another great season for our visitors.
