A Western Adventure for 2023


The travel industry predicts that the summer of 2022 will usher in an end to the uncertainty that has accompanied vacation plans for the past two years. Current numbers support the forecast, as worldwide bookings for the summer months have already surpassed 2021 levels by at least 80%. While the industry works toward recovery, many travelers are jaded by years of increasingly complicated travel restrictions and requirements. What better way to break free from this fatigue than to book a getaway aimed to be just that: an escape. If this idea appeals, look no further than a week surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Idaho mountains at a rustic lodge provides the perfect opportunity to relax and reconnect with yourself and loved ones.

The all-inclusive week-long adventure offers six nights at the ranch, catered meals, and a range of activities. Each package includes whitewater rafting on the mighty Salmon river, horseback tours through the surrounding mountains, a trip to renowned Goldbug Hot Springs, and a breathtaking backcountry airplane ride over the sprawling Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness area. Additional options include guided fly fishing, scenic Lewis & Clark history tours, private Western shootout lessons, and skeet shooting. When not participating in the excitement of guided activities, guests are welcome to enjoy the disc golf course, row boats, game room, yard games, exercise room, animal farm, and miles of hiking, biking, and ATV trails.
At the end of each fun-filled day, the Ranch provides the option to continue the enjoyment through the evening. After a filling dinner in the restaurant, guests may enjoy bonfires, western theme nights, wine tasting, and square dancing. Should you choose to relax on your own, I suggest arranging an evening in the Twin Peaks Warm Springs. From a wood-heated tub, you can unwind as you relish the sprawling views of the Salmon River, surrounded by mountains and stars.

Whether you break away for a week, or just a few days, the Twin Peaks Guest Ranch is ready to provide a memorable vacation for any adventurer.
