What better place to let your spirit run free than in the unencumbered natural flow of Idaho's Salmon River? Much of the river deeply dices the landscape into spectacular displays of geologic wonder as expressed by the calligraphy of nature's language written on walls of a canyon deeper than the Grand Canyon.
We run several sections of the lower 100 miles of river, varying from 1/2- to 6-day adventures. This allows several options, from mild to wild rapids.
Riggins: The sections above and below Riggins offer the most rapids mile-for-mile. The wildly popular half- and full-day trips make this an affordable way to get some exciting whitewater for families, groups or drop-in travelers.
Lower Gorge Below White Bird: Three- to six-day whitewater journeys are food for the soul as you travel through majestic canyons and camp on legendary big white sandy beaches as the Salmon River makes its way to the confluence with the Snake River at the bottom of Hells Canyon. The rich geographic landscapes, swimming beaches, delicious meals, and mosquito-free camps are just a few of the highlights of this captivating trip.
