Float the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is a gem located in Idaho’s Frank Church Wilderness. One of the largest wilderness areas in the Lower 48. This Class IV Middle Fork of the Salmon River drops approximately 28 feet per mile, going from high alpine down to an overall warmer climate where you will float the 2nd deepest canyon in the Lower 48. For five or six fun-filled days, you will continuously witness dramatic changes in geology and scenery.

  • World-class whitewater rafting and fly-fishing.
  • Class 2, 3 and 4 rapids on gin-clear water through canyons deeper than the Grand Canyon.
  • Soak in riverside hot springs
  • Professional licensed guides
  • Everything supplied. You just bring your personal items.
  • Primitive, yet comfortable tent camps on sandbars along the river. You will be surprised how comfortable they make them.
  • Gourmet river cuisine. Your guides will create dishes that will blow your mind. It doesn’t seem possible to cook such great food in such a remote, rugged atmosphere and over an open fire.
  • June – August
  • Arrive day prior, spend the night in Stanley.
  • 5 or 6 Day Floats
  • On the last day you will be shuttled back to Stanley where we recommend staying and leaving the next morning.
