Rafting the Salmon River
Salmon River rafting trips in Idaho are something special. Find yourself in a place on the map that has changed little since Lewis and Clark first hiked through its forests and mountains. Wildlife such as elk, bear, moose, otters, beavers, and even wolves roam the surrounding hills. Whether you choose a rafting trip on the Main Salmon River, the longest undammed river in the United States, or opt for the 100-mile Middle Fork trip, you can expect impossibly clear water and exhilarating Class III and IV rapids.
Salmon River rafting trips take you through the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, and into deep, rocky canyons. The Main Salmon flows through the second-deepest canyon in North America. Fishermen enjoy plying the crystal-clear water of both rivers. Stand-up paddleboarders love the wave trains of the Main Salmon. Everyone can bask and relax on warm, white sand beaches, and absorb the solace of nature. Swim in clear, calm eddies. Sleep under the bright, starry sky or put up your tent beneath a stand of fragrant, cool pines. Each traveler who navigates these Idaho rivers finds something to love. It may be called the “River of No Return”, but this is one river to which you’ll definitely want to return!
