Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Rafting - Idaho - USA

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is a 104-mile-long river in central Idaho in the northwestern United States. The Middle Fork lies in the middle of the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, part of the largest road less area left in the lower 48 states. The Middle Fork is a tributary of the Salmon River, which is the main tributary of the Snake River, which in turn is the main tributary of the Columbia River. The Middle Fork is one hundred miles of whitewater. The Middle Fork has three hundred rapids for rafters to enjoy. Protected by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 1968, it remains one of the most beautifully unspoiled whitewater rafting rivers in the world.

Every day of the 6-day adventure was enjoyable! ROW really knows how to pamper it's guests. The meals were fantastic and the guides were great. Guides get to know you personally and are a joy to hang out with on and off of the water, not to mention full of knowledge about the flora and fauna. Spending 6 days on the river away from the hustle or everyday life makes you feel like a kid again; excitement around every turn!

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River has something for everyone. The scenery changes from high alpine to towering canyon walls, hikes to hot springs, cliff jumping, waterfalls, fantastic fishing and technical whitewater are just a few of the things you can experience. My family loved the experience in the magical river canyon.
