The City of Lapwai is geographically located in North Central Idaho within the boundaries of both Nez Perce County and the Nez Perce Indian Reservation. Centered in “one of Idaho’s most historic spots.” our past and present bring together the Nez Perce, early explorers, settlers, and important technology, military, missionary, and educational efforts. We are a 30-minute drive to a great variety of mountain meadows, rolling farm lands, vineyards, rugged back country and numerous rivers, lakes, and outdoor adventures. All four seasons are celebrated, but milder winters are normal. We invite you to come visit our small, but transforming city that honors its past, celebrates its cultures, and plans for its future.
