Salmon River Rafting

The Salmon River

The Salmon River is the longest, undammed river contained within one state in the lower 48 United States, flowing 425 miles through pristine wilderness. Its unspoiled, natural beauty just can’t be beat. Many consider it to be the most beautiful river in North America. We float the lower section of the river, known as the Canyons, before it meets the Snake River. With exhilarating class III and IV whitewater rapids, beautiful white sand beaches, and deep river canyons, your Salmon River rafting trip will be the adventure of a lifetime.
