Tours


Come visit the Idaho Botanical Garden, our tranquil grounds display native and non-native plants in inspirational ways. The Garden is wonderful to see on your own or with a group.


Self-Guided Tours

The Idaho Botanical garden is a wonderful place to visit year-round as the seasons change and new displays are installed. When you pay admission you will receive a map of the grounds to help you navigate. If you bring young children with you, ask to borrow a Family Backpack full of items to help you share the Garden with young ones. While strolling at relaxed pace, it takes a person approximately 1.5 hours to see all the features. Don’t forget to check out the Family Backpacks!


Adult-Guided Tours

Group tours led by Gardens staff (depending on availability) are offered by reservations. To book guided tours groups must have a minimum of 10 people. There is no extra charge for a tour when they are held during normal garden hours. Email elizabeth@idahobotanicalgarden.org or call 208-343-8649.
