Journey back in time as you explore by canoe 41 miles of the pristine wilderness where Lewis and Clark were awed by the beautiful White Cliffs stretch of the Missouri River. Professional educators challenge your mind and body with canoeing and hiking by day and a chef replenishes them with a gourmet dinner each night.


• Canoe the Upper Missouri River and discover its White Cliffs that are inaccessible except by canoe, camping at one of the exact sites as the Lewis & Clark Expedition.
• Miles from civilization, savor the silence, view abundant wildlife and bask under a canopy of a million stars.
• In this designated Wild and Scenic area, hike into a slot canyon and view Native American pictographs.
