3 Hour Niobrara River Kayak and Canoe Trip
This trip offers the perfect combination of adventure and relaxation. Choose between a canoe, solo, or tandem kayak to explore this beautiful section of the Niobrara River. This trip will offer a stop at Smith Falls waterfall, the tallest in Nebraska! This is a great half day float if you only have a limited time in our area.
What to Expect
Expect a peaceful paddle through one of Nebraska’s most beautiful spots. On this trip you’ll have the chance to see the impressive Smith Falls waterfall, Nebraska’s highest waterfall. You can choose between a tandem kayak/canoe or a solo kayak to take in the beauty of the Niobrara River, a Top 10 Canoeing River in the United States.
Nature & Wildlife
Relax as the spring-fed, slow moving river gently carries you past the pine covered hills, steep cliff banks and waterfalls. The Niobrara River and its surroundings are home to a range of wildlife, including turkey, deer, rocky mountain elk, mink, otters and a whole host of birds. Keep your eyes out for herons, bald eagles and other species along your trip!

One of the best Outfitters in the business. Knowledgeable, friendly staff and good equipment! Come and enjoy one of Nebraska's hidden treasure. Designated as a "Wild and Scenic River" the stretch near Valentine has beautiful scenery, spectacular waterfalls and great water to canoe, tube, tank or kayak. These guys are great and will provide you with great service.
Very accommodating...always have a great time on the river with Little Outlaw... and crew!!!
MARGIE, RAPID CITY
I drove four hours to kayak on the Niobrara. The night before we were to get on the river, a terrible storm hit Valentine dumping inches of rain. By early afternoon, things were looking much better, so we met him at the river, had a wonderful afternoon kayaking, and returned safe and sound. I highly recommend Little Outlaw for their concern about safety as well as courteous service.
