Travel With Care

In Idaho, we care for each other and our outdoor spaces. When visiting our beautiful state, we hope you do three things: be kind to others, pick up after yourself and have fun.
We want you to experience Idaho to its fullest—now and in the future.

Care for Yourself

Being outdoors is all about knowing your limits and assessing risks. Otherwise, you could find yourself lost, stranded or injured. Whether experienced or a beginner, you know best what you can do. If your friends are hiking a more difficult trail or paddling a challenging stretch of river, it’s okay to take a pass and work your way up to their level next time. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Care for Others

People use the outdoors to escape reality and focus on the simple joys of life. Making sure Idaho is a welcoming space can be as simple as saying hello or offering a smile to a stranger. And don’t forget about the friendly folks serving you your morning cup of joe or helping you at the rental shop. Patience and kindness go a long way in making someone’s day.

Care for Idaho

When you head into Idaho’s great outdoors, please collect your trash and pack out anything you brought in. While fruit scraps like orange peels and apple cores are biodegradable, did you know it takes two years for a banana peel to decompose? No one likes to see half-eaten food along a trail. And it is harmful to wildlife. Bring trash bags with you, and leave room in your vehicle to haul your garbage.

You Can Help

We all need to do our part to keep Idaho the special place it is. If your business or organization is involved with recreation and hospitality and you want to help spread the Travel With Care message, check out our partner toolkit with messaging, assets and event ideas.
