Whitewater Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River is a white water rafting dream! More than 100 rapids span this 105 mile stretch of scenic beauty for an unforgettable whitewater rafting trip. This free flowing river drops

3000 feet through the remote and spectacular River of No Return Wilderness. Natural and untamed, the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, has been protected by Congress as one of America's first Wild and Scenic Rivers.

You will launch at nearly 6000 feet above sea level and immediately enter a forest of fir and spruce trees. At first, the river is steep, shallow and narrow. You will ride through boulder rapids. The white water rapids are frequent and challenging.

As you drop in elevation, the river widens and the spruce forest opens to vistas of pine studded mountains. Our rafts drift quietly over deep pools of transparent water,

After lunch on the 6th day we reach our take-out just below the confluence with the Main Salmon River, carry personal gear to the waiting bus and settle back for a two hour ride to the town of Salmon, Idaho.

Whitewater rafting the St. Joe River It is definitely a whitewater thriller with raft-bashing waves and holes. As the water drops later in the month, the white water rapids mellow and it becomes a great introduction to paddle rafting. On cold water rafting trips, the outfitter provide wetsuits and booties.

Like liquid emerald, the waters of the St. Joe River reflect and absorb the rich green of its cedar-lined course. As it flows and caresses moss-covered banks, challenging, yet playful class 111 white water rapids dance among the rocks.
Altogether you will float between 12 to16 miles, depending on the water level. The scenery along the way is stunning. Thick cedar forests line the river's banks. The water is crystal clear and in the deep pools at the end of the rapids you can actually see trout swimming.
