Nestled in the beautiful Moyie River canyon on U.S. Hwy 95, Eastport is the major Port of Entry from Canada into Idaho. This port is a 24 hour port, with customs brokers available and a duty free shop. On the Canadian side the port is called Kingsgate. The Eastport area has much historical significance as it was on a well traveled route long before the first road was ever built. The Wild Horse Trail of 1860’s gold rush fame followed this route and in 1909, the first track connecting the Canadian Pacific Railroad to Idaho rail lines was completed here.
Eastport is a very significant entrance to the Selkirk Loop from the Calgary/Edmonton area as well as other points north.
