Rafting the Lower Salmon
The Perfect Family Fun Trip
The Lower Salmon Canyon is known for its HUGE sandy beaches, fun rapids, and warm water. From sand castles to the river olympic challenges, the opportunities for fun are endless. Even the most adventurous will be excited by famous rapids like Demons Drop, Bodacious Bounce, Snow Hole, China, Eye of the Needle and others.
Traveling downriver, you'll find ancient cliffs and rugged landscapes dotted with the relics of a rich history. Within this remote side of Idaho and Oregon, there are numerous examples of Native American rock art and artifacts dating back 10,000 years. Days of exploring turn into evenings around the campfire. Here, stargazing and stories forge into lifetime memories, ones that resonate and connect us to a timeless legacy.

"We went with a large group, and everyone enjoyed themselves. Our guide, Gabe was extremely knowledgeable and super fun. The Adventure Idaho crew made a memorable experience for us. Can’t wait to go back again!"

"No relation, came out from Virginia and booked, here, my first white water rafting trip.
An overwhelmingly positive experience!
We came late in the rafting season (Aug) and there was one class 4 set of rapids and a host of others; all fun!
The pacing was on point, with plenty opportunities to swim, chill, or chat. Our guide brought light and levity, and was knowledgeable about the region, our route, and left no doubt as I boarded the raft that I was in good hands!"
"We had an amazing trip with these guys! The guides were awesome and took great care of us!"
