Idaho River Adventures is the culmination of a lifetime spent in Idaho’s wilderness on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. As a fifth generation Idahoan, Dustin comes from a family with a long and rich history of farming, ranching, logging and recreating in Idaho. Some of his earliest memories are fishing, hiking and exploring the wild places and rivers where Idaho River Adventures now operates. During his college years, Dustin was introduced to guiding and soon realized it was his life’s calling. The ability to share a love of these wild places with diverse groups of people remains Dustin's passion.

"I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with the most highly regarded outfitters and guides in the industry. My hope is to provide you with the best and most memorable trip of your life. A week on a river can truly be transformative. It was (and continues to be) for me."

Your safety and enjoyment is our number one priority. Idaho River Adventures guides are some of the most experienced in Idaho. All of our guides have extensive training in Wilderness First Aid as well as Swift Water Rescue training. In addition to being very safety minded, our guides will dazzle you with their storytelling, their knowledge of canyon history and flora and fauna, as well as their culinary prowess as riverside chefs. Guides have genuine enthusiasm for Idaho’s Salmon River that is infectious. You will begin the river trip as strangers and oftentimes leave as lifelong friends. 

Whether you are a first-time river runner or a seasoned whitewater enthusiast, we invite you to experience the Salmon River with Idaho River Adventures.


Dustin and his extraordinary guides were everything that one could ask for on a river trip! Experienced, friendly, incredible cooks and overall just great people, all made for a wonderful trip on an beautiful river. Our guest group was extraordinary—a fun mix of adults and kids who quickly bonded together for the week. It was hard to say goodbye! Highly recommended.


I recently had the pleasure of rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Idaho River Adventures, the fourth multiple-day guided rafting vacation I have taken. What a fantastic trip! The river is beautiful, wild and exciting. We did not lift a finger in camp except to eat fantastic and varied meals—they even washed our dishes for us.


Me and my brothers and sister-in-law did this trip with Idaho River Adventures in June 2016. What a great trip—Dustin and the guides were fantastic, always looking out for us. The food was incredible and the scenery beautiful. We had music on our trip: The Mother Hips. Very cool.
