The Lower Salmon River is a river expedition Maui style with white sandy beaches inviting you all along the way. With lots of class III & IV whitewater, a guided rafting trip on the Lower Salmon River has a great balance of heart pounding whitewater rafting and stress melting beachside camping. The Lower Salmon is a summer recreation dreamland offering a continuous wave of good times and new memories. From running the rapids and swimming the pools to playing games in the sand and relaxing beneath the stars, its hard to imagine anything could make these trips better. But add a gourmet meals prepared by our friendly and knowledgeable guides and now these trips are truly unforgettable.

The night before each trip departs, guests and guides will have a meet and greet at the Minam Store where we will discuss river protocol. The next morning we will shuttle you to the Hammer Creek boat ramp outside of Whitebird, Idaho for the start of your float. Trips will end 72 miles down river at Heller Bar on the Snake River. From there you will be shuttled back to the Minam Store where your vehicle will be parked. These guided whitewater floats are typically done in 5 days, but 4 day options are also available. Or if you would like to prolonge your retreat from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, we can slow it down and spend 6 days on the river.

Guided whitewater raft trips are all inclusive. Guests will be provided with top of the line camp gear including a heavy duty sleeping pad, a warm sleeping bag, a sturdy cot, a spacious tent, and a comfy camp chair. Delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners will be prepared riverside by our guides using fresh locally sourced ingredients.

Groups interested in booking trips must have at least 6 members. For groups less than 6 in size, you may be able to join an existing trip, so don't hesitate to give us a call. 4 day trips are $1295 per person, 5 day trips are $1595 per person, and 6 day trips are $1795 per person.
