Whitewater Rafting Main Salmon River Idaho

Idaho Whitewater Family Rafting at its Best

The Mighty Salmon, Idaho's River of No Return, is the longest free flowing river in the United States. Our five day Idaho fly fishing & Salmon river rafting journey covers 53 miles of the Salmon and 20 miles of the Snake, beginning near Whitebird and concluding at Heller Bar near Lewiston.

Twisting its course through spectacular volcanic canyons the Salmon offers a wealth of scenic beauty. Vaulted cathedral walls and amphitheaters are awe inspiring in the Green, Blue and Cougar Canyons. Salmon river rafting & Idaho fly fishing trips offer adventure for everyone. Whether you want Idaho fly fishing for trout or bass, a Salmon river rafting adventure, hiking the precipitous mountain slopes or just lounging on the beach you will love the Salmon.

Families, business groups or friends will feel a sense of camaraderie as you conquer each Salmon river rafting rapid on your course towards the Snake. Water fights are a daily occurrence and are a very inviting way to refresh the whole group. Salmon river rafting action is superb. Challenge the action in our maneuverable paddleboats, or ride the roller coaster waves in an inflatable kayak. You can also enjoy Idaho fly fishing from our comfortable driftboats, which make casting easy or just come along and relax in one of our large rafts where you can kick back without a care in the world.

Luxury Catered Camping and Salmon River Rafting Long sandy beaches greet you at each nights camp while the warm water beckons you to cool off. Lots and lots of dutch-oven food is the fare here. Don't plan to diet! We invite you to come join us for a Idaho fly fishing & Salmon river rafting trip you'll never forget, whether you're an avid outdoor person or out for your first time, come and share the uniqueness of the Salmon River.

"What a wonderful time with our family in the outdoors! Our boys loved the raft trip and want to go again. That's all they have been talking about to their friends since we returned."
