Middle Fork - Salmon River

Rafts used on the Middle Fork of the Salmon

The types of rafts and boats you'll be using on your Middle Fork Salmon River vacation are explained in detail below. The ride and adventure level between the Oar-Rig and the Paddle Raft offer unique experiences.

The rapids of the Middle Fork are class II-IV and therefore a little more powerful and exciting than in some other multi-day expeditions. The rapids here are also spaced nicely apart from each other to add excitement throughout each day, and throughout the trip.

Oar Rig

Oar-Rigs are 16', self-bailing rafts piloted by your guide, and therefore less "participatory" than other boats. All you have to do is hang on!

Paddle Raft

Paddle Rafts get you in the action of the rapids as a participant. A skilled guide steers from the back of the raft, but propulsion depends on you. Your guide will give clear orders on how to paddle, so it's easy to learn quickly. Paddle rafts are 14' in length and will hold 4 to 6 guests.
