Salmon River Float Trips
Salmon River Float Trips
We are proud to offer this 3, 4 or 5 day trip through the Salmon River Canyons, the section of the Salmon River that comprises the final 72 miles of the longest free flowing river contained in one state in the Lower 48. You will travel through 4 distinct basalt and granite walled canyons along your journey: Green Canyon, Cougar Canyon, Snowhole Canyon and Blue Canyon. Along the way we will stop to visit Niimiipuu (Nez Perce) cultural sites helping us to learn the history of the second deepest river canyon in North America and the people who have made it their home for thousands of years. Each day you can expect to encounter numerous Class III rapids on this classic pool and drop river. In between there is time to take a swim, fish for bass and sit back and take in the natural beauty of the untouched landscape.
Your guides are well versed in the history as well as flora and fauna of the area and will stop multiple times each day for discussion and to help you explore all that that our Salmon River float trip has to offer. This trip features the same stellar service found on all of our trips. The crew will do all of the work needed to make this a memorable and fun vacation including setting up all of the camp, tents and all, and doing all of the food prep and clean up. You as our guests are invited to enjoy your leasure time to the best of your ability!
