the Lower Salmon River is a epic adventure everyone should experience

Your vacation begins with an evening pre-trip meeting the night before your launch. This meeting provides an opportunity to meet the rest of your group and your river guide and discuss the details of your trip.

The Salmon River is the largest UN-dammed river in the lower 48 states.  The lower gorge Salmon River rafting trip boasts the warmest water, the fewest bugs and the biggest beaches for un-matched camping and fun for all ages.

There’s no shortage of thrill-seeking for those looking for big powerful white water with some of Idaho’s most famous rapids like Demons Drop, Snow Hole, Bodacious Bounce and Half n Half to name a few.  Everyone can jump in an inflatable kayak if you want a bigger challenge.  In mild sections of this pool and drop river there is time for trying stand-up paddle boarding or fishing for Small Mouth Bass.

The Lower Gorge Salmon River raft trip terminates in Hells Canyon at the spectacular confluence with the Snake River and the deepest canyon in N. America. The geological diversity will amaze as you pass through spectacular landscapes, steep granite walls, and metamorphosed volcanic gorges with columnar basalt formations.

The next morning, you’re shuttled to Hammer Creek, where your group will launch. Throughout the next several days, you enjoy luxury beach camping, unforgettable beaches, gourmet meals, and a variety of Idaho wildlife.

The Lower Gorge Canyons are a series of canyons that will surely be a scenic highlight of your trip. Pictographs, wildflowers, bald eagles — bring your camera and capture the beauty!
