So, what exactly is an Idaho breakfast flight?

Let's begin with what it isn't! An Idaho breakfast flight is nothing like having a pre-packaged microwaved meal aboard a commercial plane. It's a backcountry aerial tour of one of the most beautiful regions in the Pacific Northwest, Idaho's Frank Church wilderness.

An immaculate "wilderness of steep, rugged mountains, deep canyons, and wild, whitewater rivers," the U.S. Forest Service notes the Frank Church River of No Return wilds are one of the most unique and untouched forests in the nation.

How long is a breakfast flight?

A typical breakfast flight manifests just before sunrise and lasts between two-to-three hours.

As they make their way to their delicious destination, adventurers are dazzled by Idaho's majestic mountains and pristine, crystal blue lakes. If not for how hungry they were, our friend said they could've spent an entire day gliding over Idaho's stunning contours.
