As if the Middle Fork wasn’t special enough

My name is Dustin Aherin, a 5th generation Idahoan that has been involved in the outfitting industry for 22 years. I am proud to have the opportunity to offer a one of a kind wilderness vacation on the greatest river in the world; the Middle Fork of the Salmon!
Idaho River Adventures is a small, “boutique style” rafting company. We offer one trip at a time so we can focus all of our efforts to provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Our specialty trips take your Middle Fork trip one step further by crafting a unique experience built around a theme.
