The Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho is one of the premier wilderness-rafting trips in the US. It flows 100 miles of Wild and Scenic free-flowing river through the largest road-less wilderness areas in the US through a canyon that is deeper than the Grand Canyon. It has natural hot springs throughout the canyon, blue ribbon trout fishing, and more than 400 rapids grade I-III (IV in June). The Middle Fork of the Salmon is unspoiled, remote and road-less, so you can be sure you will “get away from it all”.

Our partner on this trip, Middle Fork River Expeditions, a licensed and bonded outfitter, has run safe and well-managed river trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho for more than 3 decades. Trips are 4 or 6 days of exciting river rafting, wilderness camping, fine fishing, and adventure travel. Their equipment is specially designed for wilderness whitewater rafting, and offers mild and wild boat choices (oar boats, paddle boats, fly fishing drift boats, inflatable kayaks and stand up paddle surf boards!). Their river guides are seasoned professionals, licensed by the state of Idaho and First Aid and Swift-water Rescue Certified. They are expert river runners, magnificent cooks, great storytellers, and knowledgeable, helpful outdoorsmen. Join us for a magical wilderness river vacation this summer!

"I loved all the options that you provided on the trip. Oar boats, paddle rafts, drift boats, inflatable kayaks and even an inflatable surf board made each day a new adventure depending on what option I chose. You guys rock!"

"We had an adventure of a lifetime mostly because of your amazing guides. They were always there to help with a happy smile on their face. Not only were they all accomplished outdoorsmen, they cooked the best food I have ever had in my life. Maybe it was the views and the fresh air from camp that made it taste so good!"

"This river trip was the best vacation our family has taken together. It allowed us to connect as a family in a way that we could never had done had we done any other trip. It was so refreshing to not have all the distractions of modern life that make it harder and harder these days to connect as a family. We are excited to join you again this summer!"
