Our guide staff truly sets Salmon Raft apart. See who will be taking care of you on your river vacation.

Salmon Raft of McCall, Idaho invites you to come along for an unforgettable whitewater rafting adventure.

Go back in time with us in one of our nation’s last wild places.

Join us on the Salmon River’s barefoot quality beaches, or through legendary whitewater in Hells Canyon — let us take you on vacation, and enjoy it without being in the driver’s seat.

We are proud to be based in our beautiful new Boathouse in downtown McCall and provide transportation to the river and back to home base. The Salmon River boasts legendary crystal clear waters, spacious white sand beaches, and is the second deepest canyon gorge in North America. Perhaps more luring, however, is the fact that the Salmon River is the longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 states, a rare and unique gem that’s all contained within our state of Idaho.

We also offer premier trips on the Snake River through Hells Canyon to complement our popular Salmon River trips. Hells Canyon possesses some of the most exciting whitewater in all of the West and is the deepest river canyon in North America. The impressive and rocky canyon offers extraordinary fishing opportunities and has a rich history of early settlers and indigenous people who have inhabited the canyon for more than 10,000 years. Abundant wildlife viewing, rugged terrain, and ample hiking opportunities make this trip truly unforgettable.

Choose from one of our three-day adventures for a quicker wilderness getaway, or jump right in with our team on a longer four or five-day journey through the remote Lower Salmon River Canyons or Hells Canyon. Our team of expert guides will ensure your experience is top-notch and adored by the whole family.
