Idaho River Rafting

Taking a trip down the Salmon River is something every white water enthusiast should experience. On that note, if you’ve never been river rafting before then Idaho is the perfect place to start. It’s a beautiful state with acres of outdoor area to explore. It shouldn’t be too hard to convince you that Idaho river rafting is a must do for your bucket list.

The Thrill of the Water

First and foremost you should be looking forward to the wild ride of the Salmon River. Experienced guides will navigate you through white water and peaceful flows alike. If you want to take the reigns, you can jump in a kayak for easy paddling. A multi-day trip down the Middle Fork will take you down 110 miles while the Main Fork is 81 miles.

Impressive Scenery

One reason people love to river raft in Idaho is to get away from it all. While most people think of potatoes when they think of Idaho, they might not believe their eyes when they see the beauty hidden in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. The canyons of the Salmon reach 7,000 feet, one of the deepest canyons in the U.S. While floating down the Salmon River you’re bound to see bighorn sheep, otters, eagles, and maybe even a bear.
