Idaho’s Middle Fork of the Salmon River is the premier whitewater rafting trip in the West. The many great rapids have made the Middle Fork of the Salmon famous, but it also has an amazing variety of other attractions that will make your 6-day river trip a spectacular vacation.
Ranked #3 for Top 10 white-water rafting adventures in the World by National Geographic.
The water is crystal clear and beautiful, and the fishing for native cutthroat trout can be extraordinary. Relaxing natural hot springs dot the river corridor, and there are numerous Native American and pioneer historic sites to explore. The area is home to bighorn sheep, deer, elk, black bear, river otters and other wildlife that can often be seen along the river.
The Middle Fork flows through the heart of the 2.3 million acre Frank Church Wilderness Area, the largest wilderness in the lower 48. From its beginning high in the mountains of central Idaho, you’ll travel over 100 miles through breathtaking, continually changing scenery. You’ll be descending approximately 3,000 feet in elevation, beginning in the high, dense forests of fir and spruce, passing by majestic ponderosa pines dotting grassy slopes, and finally entering the rugged granite gorge of Impassable Canyon.
