Transport yourself into the mountains and true wilderness of Idaho’s Main Salmon River, where big water splashes, warm sandy beaches, and rugged scenery fill your multi-day river trip. The adventure of travelling with family or friends deeper into the river canyons each day, while camping at night under clear starry skies, is a unique experience that is sure to create memories that last a lifetime.
The Salmon River weaves a story of early explorers, deep wilderness, and a free-flowing river for your relaxing vacation days. Flowing through Idaho’s Frank Church River of No Return wilderness area, the largest tract of a protected wild landscape in the lower 48 states, the Main Salmon’s class III big water rapids and sandy beaches provide an escape for any kind of adventure seeker.
Protected as a Wild and Scenic River since 1980, the Salmon River watershed is one of the last great free-flowing rivers in the west. Even Lewis and Clark could not penetrate the deep canyon on their river expeditions to the Pacific Ocean. Today, our six-day raft trips will journey into this same canyon with luxuries that Lewis and Clark could not have even imagined.
A multi-day rafting trip the Main Salmon River combines big and friendly white water rapids, warm water, rugged wilderness scenery, natural hot springs, and Wet Planet’s characteristic exceptional guides and service.
The Main Salmon River multi-day river trip explores 80 miles of central Idaho’s rough and remote terrain. Bighorn sheep, black bear, moose, eagles, river otters, and more call these canyon walls their home.
This Eden has also lured intrepid explorers for centuries. Guides will tell tales of the travelers who sought fortune and solitude along the river. Hiking to the scattered historic cabins and ranches hint at the collection of characters who were determined to live out their days along this grand river corridor.
Rafting on Idaho’s Main Salmon River is all about maximizing fun time in the warm river. Warm summer days combine with fantastic Class III whitewater rapids and stretches of meandering swimming holes that beckon visitors to take a dip. White water rapids, such as Rainier, Black Creek, and Chittam put up a big show with large waves and boulders, yet invite even novice paddlers to try their skills in their own inflatable kayak.
A lunch buffet, prepared by your five-star guides restores your energy for more river play and enjoyment in the afternoon. Grab a stand-up paddleboard for one of the gentle river meanders or relax in the raft.
Landing on a white sandy beach, your guides will provide camp comforts and exquisite meals while you relax by the river’s edge. There is always time for a game of frisbee or bocce ball as you nibble on appetizers and your guides prepare the evening meal. Eagles soar in the skies above as you enjoy your warm and tasty dinner. The sun sets among the ponderosa pine tree groves and jagged mountain peaks as you sink even deeper into the wilderness and the gentle lull of the river’s flow.
