A two or three-day river trip with Idaho’s leading Salmon River rafting company, Salmon Raft, brings you down 40 miles of both scenic floating and exciting rapid navigation. Take your time enjoying the river corridor over the course of three leisurely days, or see it all in just two! The first 20 miles of the trip lend time to warm up to the river trip, with several Class II and II+ rapids. Take in the scenery and wildlife, learn to kayak, or enjoy short hikes for the first half of the trip. The second 20 miles is a fun stretch that features exciting Class III and IV rapids, the highest concentration of back-to-back whitewater.
At the end of the day of rafting, you’ll arrive at a big, white sand beach, where our guides will have camp already set up – yes, even your tents and sleeping pads will be set up for you. Appetizers will be prepped, while you relax with a book, practice your fishing skills, or dig your toes into the soft sand and warm river water. Meals on our overnight trips are gourmet, organic-infused, and hearty. Steak, Idaho mashed potatoes, and homemade bread are just a few choices on the menu, with always the option to make accommodations for dietary restrictions or picky eaters. Your river guides turn into expert chefs – who knew? – and they even do the dishes.
Indulge in a warm dessert and relax in the twilight hours before drifting to sleep to the tranquil sounds of the Salmon River flowing. An energizing breakfast gets everyone rolling for the next day, and who doesn’t like to wake up to sizzling bacon and a freshly brewed cup of coffee?
