September 2-7 Gourmet Food & Wine Multi-day Rafting Trip

Join Elk Cove’s Shirley Brooks on Idaho’s Main Salmon River

Our team has gone rafting with Wet Planet every August for nearly two decades. It’s a fantastic way to take in the wild beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and we’ve always had the best guides. In 2022, we’re partnering up to offer the second annual 6-day rafting trip on Idaho’s Salmon River. This exclusive gourmet food & wine trip will be the adventure of a lifetime!

Just like Elk Cove, Wet Planet was founded by a couple driven by their passions. After talking about it for years, Shirley from Elk Cove and Jaco at Wet Planet designed a collaborative multi-day adventure on Idaho’s Main Salmon River. Last year’s trip was such an incredible experience that we can’t wait to do it again this September! This adults-only trip is open to all of our fans – with Elk Cove wines along for the ride.

Come play on the river, experience the stunning Idaho wilderness and toast each day’s paddling with a glass of Elk Cove Wine. Cheers!

“Elk Cove Vineyards groups have rafted the White Salmon River with Wet Planet for as long as we can remember! Has it really been 19 years?! Each year, our guides ‘fight’ over who gets to guide the trip and join for wine after!

In addition to making great wine, the people at Elk Cove have an appreciation for the natural environment we all live, recreate and operate in. We strive to have this in common, and that is why we have always had a very natural and warm friendship with Adam and Shirley. We look forward to September!”

– Wet Planet co-founder Jacomijn “Jaco” Klinkenberg
