Middle Fork Salmon River Rafting

Simply look no further than the Middle Fork for Idaho river rafting trips. The Middle Fork of the Salmon lies in the heart of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Beginning from the Sawtooth Mountains, the Middle Fork drops 3,000 feet over 100 miles and features dozens of class 3 rapids. Over these 100 miles, you’ll float by and often stop at hot springs, Shoshone-Bannock ancestral sites, and waterfalls. Big Horn Sheep, Bald Eagles, Osprey, and Marmots are commonly seen while floating downriver.
