The Main Salmon River is the largest un-dammed river in the lower 48 states. The nature of a free flowing river gives the Salmon River an abundance of pristine white sand beaches, affording the highest quality camping of any river trip we know. The Main Salmon River has cut its way through thousands of feet of geologic history over millions of years. You'll pass through steep granite and metamorphosed volcanic gorges which will open to roomier columnar basalt formations that will mystify anyone. The diverse landscapes provide habitat to an equally diverse collection of animal and plant life, including deer, golden eagles, bighorn sheep, river otter, cougar, and bears all common on Salmon River rafting trip. We pass by crossings used by Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce Indians in their flight from the U.S. Calvary in 1877. We will also visit Chinese pit dwellings, abandoned homesteads, and old mining claims. A river trip just wouldn't be complete without the campfire and retelling the adventures of the day while enjoying marshmallows and s'mores.
Everything about a Hells Canyon rafting trip and the Snake River running through it is Big. Big whitewater, Big waves, Big fish, and Big breathtaking views of the Wilderness Area of North America's deepest canyon. Hells Canyon not only offers whitewater rafting but also great hiking and photo opportunities with maintained trail systems throughout including many of the side canyons. Pictographs left by the Nez Perce Indians are abundant along with the many historical cabins left by the early pioneers. On a Hells Canyon raft trip you might see Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Bear, Mountain Goat, Deer, Eagles and more. Did we mention fishing, the Snake River through Hell's Canyon boasts some of the best fishing found anywhere, with Sturgeon, Bass and Trout fishing. This is truly paradise for the adventurous sportsman with Sturgeon averaging 6 to 8 feet, Small Mouth Bass virtually every few minutes and Rainbows for the fly fisherman. Guests can enjoy paddling together in a paddle raft or oar boat where your guide will safely get you through the whitewater and allow you to fish, photograph, sun bathe, bird watch or just relax between the rapids. We also have inflatable kayaks available by request if your really looking for an adrenalin rush. Because we use a large supply raft our camps are set by the time you get there, prepare to be pampered with our deluxe backcountry accomodations.
