Salmon River Whitewater Rafting Trips

Rafting on the Salmon River in Idaho is unlike anywhere else in the United States. As the longest un-dammed river in the U.S. and flowing through the lower 48s largest wilderness area, rafting trips on the Salmon River take kayakers and rafters on a whitewater vacation un-matched in wildlife, scenery, or adventure. Rafting trips in late June or early July are typically going to have bigger waves as this river is strictly controlled by snow melt. Salmon River rafting trips in later July or August are usually accompanied by less powerful rapids and warmer water. Determine the experience you are looking for between the Main Salmon or Lower Salmon and then find the right dates for your ultimate whitewater rafting vacation.  We also have single day trips available on the Salmon River near Riggins Idaho.
