Salmon River 3 Day
Salmon River 3-Day Adventure
The Salmon River, also known as the “River of No Return,” is the longest free-flowing river in the country. Our journey is highlighted by fun Class III and Class IV rapids and a beautiful riverside camp at the bottom of a breathtaking 5,000-ft. canyon.
We ask that you arrive in Riggins, Idaho, by 9:00 a.m. Mountain Time. After loading our gear, we will depart for Vinegar Creek, the start of our journey. We will engage in a thorough safety orientation at the boat ramp before heading out on the river. For 3 days we will face an abundance of Class III rapids with the occasional Class IV rapid mixed in. We cover approximately 10-15 miles each day and arrive at camp at between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. The entire camp is already set up, which means your only job is to enjoy the surroundings. You can swim, play bocce ball, hike, fish, or just relax in camp. In the evening, we prepare a fine gourmet meal in our well-stocked river kitchen, including a fresh-baked dessert.
In the mornings, we have breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and try to get back on the water between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. The second & third days are even more exciting than the first, with our best rapids including Ruby Rapids, Lake Creek, Tight Squeeze, and Black Rock. Those of you who are interested are free to try out our inflatable kayaks either in the flat water or in the rapids.
We typically arrive back at Riggins between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. the 3rd day, where your vehicles await.. Please let us know of any other services we can provide you with while visiting us.
