Lewiston is the largest city in Nez Perce County, Idaho, with a population of 30,904 as of the 2000 census. It is the second largest city in all of the northern Idaho region, behind Coeur dAlene. Its situated at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers and is considered the "Gateway to Hells Canyon." Managed by the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, Hells Canyon is North Americas deepest gorge. It is located on the western border of Idaho and the northeastern border of Oregon. This spectacular, natural wonder covers 652,488 acres and rivals any other vista on the continent. Recreational activities include hiking and horseback riding the mountainous wilderness, whitewater rafting, swimming, fishing, sailing, mountain biking and camping. A scenic tour of the canyon by jet boat is a must for visitors. Commercial jet boat outfitters depart from the valley daily, and offer a variety of trips for all levels. You can chose a one-day outing, or stay overnight in an upriver lodge and experience the serenity of getting away from it all. Your guide can also take you on a raft or inflatable kayak through some of the most exciting whitewater rapids to be found. In the wintertime, snow skiing and snowmobiling are just a short drive from Lewiston. Thirty miles northwest of the city is the Lower Granite Dam, which his the last and upper-most of the four dams on the lower Snake River.

Lewiston Weather & Climate

Idaho's Northern Panhandle has four distinct seasons. Located within the northern latitude, Idaho's Northern Panhandle has summer days that are long and sunny, with just enough rain to keep things very green and pretty. Temperatures can range from very warm in the summer to very cold in the winter. The major mountain ranges accumulate a deep snow cover in the winter. In spring, the melting snow pack provides irrigation water for the lower regions of the state. The major source of moisture for northern Idaho is the Pacific Ocean, although in summer there are some exceptions when moisture-laden air is brought in from the south.
