Go Northwest! attended yesterday’s General Membership Meeting of the North Central Idaho Travel Association (NCITA) held at the Whitebird Summit Lodge and Guest Ranch, Grangeville, Idaho and came away impressed by all the many things to do and see in that area of the state. At the top of the list are the amazing opportunities for outdoor recreation including hiking, backpacking, fishing, canoeing, rafting and jet boat trips.

In additional to those activities, the area plays host to numerous festivals and events sponsored by various local groups including the several chambers of commerce representing cities and towns of the region.

And if you are looking for scenery, consider that North Central Idaho is home to several scenic byways, the deepest river gorge in the country (Hells Canyon) and the longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 (Salmon River of No Return) plus numerous wilderness areas and thousands of square miles of forests.
