Salmon Wilderness Trips

“River of No Return” Float Trips

Whitewater adventure vacation trips on this pristine wilderness river in central Idaho near the Montana border. Wilderness trips begin at the end of the Salmon River road (Corn Creek Campground) and proceed directly into the 100-mile wide “River of No Return” Wilderness. In order to traverse the wilderness, one must either float all the way through to the road’s end at the western edge, fly out from secluded airstrips or jet boat back to the end of the river road.

Adventure vacation rafting on the Salmon River near the Frank Church Wilderness Area in Idaho.

Whitewater rafting through the wilderness on the Main Salmon River is a great adventure through one of our nation’s last “truly wild” wilderness areas. A controlled season is managed on this river to preserve this beautiful wilderness experience. We already have the permits for your rafting vacation — and are ready to go! During the Forest Service controlled season, we are restricted to these launch dates:

June 24 – July 2, 10, 18, 26 – August 3, 11, 19, 27 – September 4.

Prior to June 20 or after September 1, trips can be scheduled any time.

Group discounts available on all trips.
