You'll head upriver into the Frank Church Wilderness Area through exciting rapids, passing old gold mines, Chinese-built rock houses, and wildlife such as bighorn sheep, deer, elk, bear, and eagles.
The first stop will be at the Polly Bemis Ranch. Polly was an early settler in this rugged country, where she lived and thrived for many years. After a visit to her home, now a museum, (and a restroom break) you'll be back on the water, and off to the James Ranch. Once there, you'll enjoy your lunch on a great beach just perfect for swimming, gold panning, or just relaxing in the sun. Fishing is also possible for those with the desire (and a license). After a good break, it's back on the water and off to the confluence of the South Fork of the Salmon River. With enough water, your trip will continue on to the Buckskin Bill Homestead and Museum. Buckskin Bill was a long-time Salmon River resident who carved out his life with unique style and skill. He was a true mountain man and you will be amazed by examples of his handiwork. After an unforgettable day, you'll head back downriver to the mornings launch site. Our Salmon River tour will take you through some of the most beautiful scenery in the country, and will provide memories that will last a lifetime.
