We love spas, massages, and pampering.

Many moms, however, like to incorporate some adrenaline-inducing activities. These activities for the adventurous mom are sure to provide inspiration in planning your own thrill-seeking trip!

River Rafting at River Dance Lodge. Located in Kooskia, Idaho, the River Dance lodge offers the adventurous mom the chance to experience guided Lochsa whitewater rafting, which is available in May and June. The standard one-day trip covers 20 miles of thrilling whitewater and numerous rapids. The resort's Lochsa packages deliver amazing guided activities, great homestyle meals, relaxation and memories that will last a lifetime. During your stay, you'll also have the option of saddling up and going on a horseback ride along the Clearwater River!

Glamping it up at The Resort at Paws Up. Glamping, or glamorous camping, provides a luxury camping experience in which the tents have many of the amenities of a hotel room. Montana's Resort at Paws Up provides this decadent experience with its own luxury tents. The resort's Moonlight Camp is a collection of six safari-like glamping tents that allow guests to connect with the great outdoors without forgoing the amenities of a luxury resort. These tents are located at the foot of Lewis and Clark's famous Lookout Rock, and 100 yards from Blackfoot River. And adventure enthusiasts can take delight in 37,000 acres of resort, 100 miles of trails, and opportunities for horseback riding, fly fishing, and ATV tours.
