Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River With Idaho River Journeys

If you want to venture out into the wild and wonderful world of the Gem State, you won’t want to miss out on a river rafting excursion with Idaho River Journeys. This trusted company is about a two-hour drive north of Triangle C Cabins in the town of Salmon, Idaho. Here’s what each excursion entails:


Idaho River Journeys features two unique and exciting rafting adventures on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. You can choose between their five and six-day excursions. The whitewater rafting on both of these trips is second to none in the Gem State. Get ready to revel in the pulse-pounding excitement of careening down raging rapids as you soak in stunning views of the surrounding mountains. You can also try your luck at inflatable kayaking on one of the middle days of your trip. 


One of the most unique features of an Idaho River Journeys trip is the opportunity to get out of the raft and experience the diverse, untouched land in the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. There are over a dozen hikes that you can enjoy on your rafting trip featuring alpine vistas, hot springs, stunning canyon views. The natural beauty of this area is indescribable, and you need to see it to believe it.  


You may not think the food on a river camping trip is full of intricate flavors and great food, but an Idaho River Journeys excursion is not just any camping trip. Kick off your fun-filled day with blueberry pancakes or French toast with thick-cut bacon before digging into a rotisserie chicken sandwich before capping off the evening with grilled cedar plank salmon. Check out their daily menus before booking your adventure!

Fly Fishing

Fly fishing is another fantastic benefit of booking an adventure with Idaho River Journeys. While they offer separate fly fishing experiences in the summer and September specifically geared towards anglers, their classic rafting trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River allow you the opportunity to learn how to fly fish as one of the fun interactive activities.
