River of No Return

The Salmon River is often called the River of No Return, made famous by Native American tales that those who go down the river never come back. The rapids were so wild, and the cliffs so steep that those who ventured through were never seen again.

We still have awesome whitewater for your rafting enjoyment. The river is beautiful this time of year and you get to see awesome wildlife. A bear was spotted by our last guests sitting in the river taking a little soak on a warm day. He wasn't very happy to see us and bounded up the mountain in a flash.  Bears are spotted quit a bit this time

of year taking a little dip in the water.

Salmon River Rapids

Now is the time to enjoy an exciting Idaho Salmon River float trip. Starting at Pine Creek rapid, one of the best, down to upper and lower Dutch Oven, to infamous Mud Slide with plenty of exciting water in between. It's just very fun for the whole family. You'll get wet! I can promise you that, but, it's nice to cool off. If, you really want to cool down, jump in. We still have snow-melt, I guarantee that will cool you off!
