The Main Salmon River or, “River of No Return” as it is known; is the perfect juxtaposition of relaxing vacation and thrilling adventure. The numerous class III and occasional class IV rapids are certainly exciting for anyone, but they are also manageable for the first time inflatable kayaker or rafter. The charter plane flight into small-town Idaho add’s a unique sense of adventure. Floating through the continental United States largest wilderness area and second deepest canyon gives an unparalleled feeling of escape and remoteness not attainable in most other places of the country.

Simply everything about the Main Salmon River makes it America’s premier rafting vacation.  On a typical trip it’s common to see big horn sheep, deer, black bears, and even the occasional moose. We hike trails near side streams full of fishing opportunities, we explore historic homesteads and enjoy fruit from their feral orchards, we sleep on large beaches under bright stars and all of this while we travel down a beautiful wilderness river.  Nestled in the canyon of the, “River of No Return” you will find new friends, connect with old friends, bond with your kids, and ultimately go home rejuvenated from your time in the wilds of Idaho. Sign up today and join us on this river that holds a very special place in our hearts.

Our standard summer trip here is a 6-day, 6 night trip.  It starts off with charter plane flight from Boise Idaho to Salmon Idaho.  From Salmon it’s a bus ride to the put-in and our lodge for the night.  From here it’s 84 miles of whitewater and wilderness adventure ahead.
