Lower Salmon River Rafting

Soak up rich scenic wonder and history while splashing toward huge sandy camping beaches. The Lower Salmon River trip explores the final miles of the Salmon River before it joins the mighty Snake River on its way to the Columbia. On this section of river, our trips cover 53 miles on the Salmon River plus another 21 miles on the Snake River. Along the way, we float through four different canyons named Green, Cougar, Snowhole and Blue.

Choose from our standard departure, or if you're planning to travel with kids, check out our "Family Magic" departures. These are uniquely equipped with a dedicated "River Jester" to entertain the children with nature hikes and fun activities. A separate kids-only menu treats the kids to dinner at an earlier hour, while the more mature palate will enjoy nightly riverside gourmet. All this makes the Lower Salmon River Family Magic trip the perfect family rafting trip for younger families.

Lower Salmon 5 Day Trip Reviews

Where does one start!

5
Where does one start? This was simply a fantastic and new experience for us and we enjoyed it all very much. There was never a dull moment...the river rafting was very exciting and was not scary after all, the food was very yummy and filling, and the games and other distractions were just perfect.

Awesome Experience for the Inexperienced

I'm floored that there are people out there who are multi-skilled and multi-talented, have incredibly pleasant and engaging personalities and never seemed frustrated with our inexperience or with our kids. These guides worked all day long and only seemed to rest when they were sleeping! They appeared to have as much fun as we were, but took everyone's safety very seriously. I never once felt like they could not be trusted.

Camping & Dining

We call it luxury camping. In order to make your trip run as smoothly and comfortably as possible, we use a cargo raft to carry camping gear, food and supplies ahead of the main group. This allows our smaller rafts to be lighter and more maneuverable, which makes for a safer ride with more bounce and splash. The cargo boat crew arrives at camp early to setup the kitchen and tents we supply for you.

  • Totally Awesome!

    The experience was absolutely unique and to quote my teenage sons, 'totally awesome.' We learned, were thrilled with the whitewater, made new friends, ate like kings, and most importantly, totally relaxed.
