1 Day White Water Rafting on the Main Salmon River
Our Salmon River rafting day trip includes floating a 13 mile section of the Main Salmon River 17 miles west of North Fork. This is where it flows through a beautiful canyon forming some great rapids! This white water rafting day trip is enjoyed by folks ranging in age from 5 to late 70′s. You have your choice between a paddle boat or an oar boat where the guide sits in the center of the raft and you just need to sit and hang on. Most of our river guests seem to enjoy the paddle raft as you are more pro-active and you can possibly get a little wetter!! Your picture is taken as you go through Pine Creek Rapids. A delicious barbecued lunch is prepared for you along the Salmon River’s edge. Besides the main entree lunch includes appetizers, fresh salads and home baked deserts. A camera can be brought on the raft and kept in a dry bag for safe keeping during the Salmon River rapids. We usually see big horn sheep and on occasion mountain goats along the way not to mention some very majestic scenery.
Extend Your Salmon River Rafting Day Trip
At the end of a river rafting day trip many of our guests have commented “Wow, this is so much fun we don’t want this trip to be over!” Well, it doesn’t have to be! For those adventure seekers who are after more excitement and want to experience a longer, quality time on the Salmon River we offer 2 and 3 day Main Salmon River rafting trips as well.
Gold Mine Tours along the Salmon River
Gold Mine Tours are included in our river rafting day trip as well as our 2 and 3 day white water rafting trips. This section of the Main Salmon River is rich in history as gold was discovered in the late 1880′s. Some of the original building built by the miners are still standing. A very informative and interesting talk is given. There is also a demonstration of gold panning and a walk into an old mine shaft and mill building.
This gold mine tour enhances the whole Salmon River rafting experience. This is very much enjoyed by all our guests.
