Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River is one of the premier wilderness trips in the United States. Experience 100 miles of Wild and Scenic, free-flowing river as it flows through the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The Middle Fork’s canyon is breathtaking, mountainous, and deeper than the Grand Canyon. Natural hot springs bubble up throughout the canyon, there’s good trout fishing, and too many rapids to count. Salmon River Middle Fork rafting trips lead you through unspoiled, remote, and roadless areas—this is the place to get away from it all.
Our partner on this trip is Middle Fork River Expeditions (MFRE).
