April 11 is the Day of Adventure and AdventureELEVATE delegates are invited to adventure with ROW Adventures!
As a first for an ATTA event, delegates can customize their Day of Adventure by choosing their own morning and afternoon activities in the Coeur d’Alene region among the kayaking, rafting, hiking and cycling options available.
The Day of Adventure is offered at a significant discount (thank you to ROW Adventures) and range from $25 for half day activities to $50 for a full day. Adventure activities will conveniently depart from the Coeur d’Alene Resort, our venue and official hotel.
Please note that the deadline to reserve your Day of Adventure is March 31.
An exciting whitewater through the lower Spokane River Gorge! It’s the region’s best kept secret and the most memorable way to see Riverside State Park, the famous Bowl & Pitcher and the Devil’s Toenail!
Lake Coeur d'Alene Kayaking
Lake Coeur d’Alene is a paddler’s paradise. Fed by the Wild & Scenic St. Joe, Coeur d’Alene and St. Maries Rivers, the lake is roughly 25 miles long and – with many bays – boasts over 109 miles of shoreline. Join us on a half–day kayaking tour over crystal clear waters and along shores of pine, fir and cedar. We’ll take you towards Cougar Bay, a peaceful and beautiful nature preserve. As you paddle, you’ll learn about the Native peoples of the area, early pioneer history, the steamboat era and Lake Coeur d’Alene today. You may see osprey, great blue herons, bald eagles and songbirds as your guide spins tales of the natural wonders in and around the lake. *lunch included
Higgins Point Biking
Enjoy breathtaking scenery on your ride along the shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene to Higgin’s Point while learning about the natural and cultural history of the area from your friendly, professional guide!
Mineral Ridge Hike
Just 20 minutes east of downtown Coeur d’Alene, is the Mineral Ridge National Recreation Trail. Starting at Beauty Bay, the forested trail climbs to 700′ above the lake and makes a 3.3 mile loop with panoramic views of Lake Coeur d’Alene and the mountains beyond.
