Facts

When to visit:

The peak season in Idaho is the summer when schools let out in June. That’s when most families will come in from out of state to enjoy Idaho’s plethora of outdoor adventures. Anglers, however, will want to come to the state in the spring to catch salmon and steelhead until just past April.

The number of tourists in Idaho tapers off sharply during the winter months. Off-season bargain hunters can find some good deals this time of year. It’s the perfect time to stop by Lava Hot Springs for a warm soak and hotel rooms at low rates.
