Idaho: a wild state

Squeezed between Oregon and Montana, Idaho is a young and wild state made up of over 100 mountain ranges. This is a place to leave your cellphone behind, along with your responsibilities and daily worries, and get down to the job of actually living. When your days aren't spent trekking along the winding mountainous trails looking for wildlife, they can be used to explore historic cities and fascinating museums. Certified thrill-seekers will be particularly taken when they stay in an Idaho vacation rental. Rock climbing, white water rafting and off-piste snowboarding are all waiting.

The great outdoors awaits in Idaho

If you're looking for the great outdoors, you've found it in Idaho. You're never far from nature and the endless possibilities for outdoor fun when you stay in an Idaho vacation rental. To make the most of it, consider taking a road trip through the state, stopping en route for hiking the winding forest trails, camping under the stars, or fly-fishing for trout. Heading to Idaho in winter? No need to hole up at your rental. You can strap on your cross-country skis to explore the snowy trails, or soak in steamy pools fed by natural hot springs.

Something for everyone in Idaho and a few wild cards too

You'll find unique attractions near any Idaho vacation rental, but in McCall and Boise, you'll be spoiled for choice. Even just wandering through historic downtown Boise is pleasing enough. Don't miss the Idaho Botanical Garden, a 15-acre gem in the former grounds of the state penitentiary. For something really quirky, try the Museum of Clean, which showcases past and present methods to, well, clean. Alternatively, military history buffs should try to swing by the Warhawk Air Museum, a huge 40,000-square-foot space which celebrates American veterans and includes exhibits of many of wars over the last century.

Avoid the crowds by visiting Idaho in the shoulder months

Idaho's climate can vary, but is typically temperate much of the year. If you don't mind throngs of vacationers on the hiking trails, the hottest months are between June and August. To skip the crowds, try to score an Idaho vacation rental in the shoulder months. March to May are particularly enticing, with bright skies and warm sunshine but a slightly more comfortable temperature, ideal for walking. If you visit in winter, you'll be treated to a vast snowy wilderness which can be used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

For wildlife, look to Idaho's forests

Idaho's forests are packed with wildlife species. A trek through any and you'll likely come across meandering woodland caribou, little pygmy shrews and circling bald eagles overhead. Lynx and wolverines are shy creatures but if you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of them. This is bear country and though the grizzly is threatened due to habitat loss and hunters, they still roam the parks, along with North American brown bears. If you want to see them, the easiest , not to mention safest, option is to hop on one of the safari tours.
