Guided Salmon River Float Trips

The perfect way to spend a day with family or a group of friends is a boat trip on Idaho's Salmon River. Our guides stop at a gold mine, give you a mine tour, demonstrate gold panning techniques, feed you a homemade snack, and cold drinks. Then, it's back into the boats, to go through some of the best rapids in the state. Next, we serve you lunch of grilled steak, baked potato, salad, fruit, and ice-cold lemonade. Finally, back into the boats for a short run to the takeout spot.

Salmon River Float Trips

The way spring weather is behaving, we can expect spring runoff to last a good part of the summer, at least well into the month of July. Last week's report on snow water equivalent (for what it's worth) for the Salmon Basin showed it to be 188 percent of average. So, while supplies last, please call us at 1-888-654-4386 to make your reservation for a 1 day or multi-day trip.

BrownWater Rafting

Ever heard of brownwater rafting? It might be common in some places of the world, but not here in the Idaho Salmon River country. We learn to expect it every year! Brown spray, angry and brimming the banks, but it doesn't last forever. At this moment, we have spring runoff on the Salmon, but very soon the river will calm down, clear up and be right for recreation. The Salmon Basin snowpack is 155 per cent of average which promises great whitewater rafting for the summer of 2011.
