Just finished an incredible 6 day rafting ( also had 11 hard shell kayakers ) trip on the Middle Fork River. The river is well worth the trip, but what makes it a 5 star adventure is James Ellsworth's Middle Fork River Expeditions ( MFRE) company. I cannot say enough good things about this group. James' run a first class... More

All I can say to Rocky, is “THANK YOU!” I’ve now been on two Middle Fork trips with Rocky Mountain River Tours, each more incredible than the last. It’s really nice to have the flexibility choose the between the back of the rafts (dry), the front (splashy and fun), the action of paddleboat - where we get to paddle! (more... More

We did a five days/4night rafting and fishing expedition with MFRE. We did our research before the trip and found several tour operators with good reviews. MFRE had the best offer. We couldn't have made a better choice! The food was excellent. Activities were diverse and interesting. Fly fishing was spectacular. Rapids were not too hairy, class 2-3. The group... More

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is my favorite place in the world! Three years ago was the first time I ran the Middle Fork with Adventure Sun Valley, when I was invited on a trip with friends. What a delight! The guides were proficient at rowing but also showed attentiveness to each guest, even backing off on the... More

First time on a rafting trip and I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it as I'm a very girly-girl from a big southern city but this was easily the best vacation ever. The guides were wonderful, food was excellent and scenery and nature beyond words. I even still keep in touch with the other guests from the trip and we're... More

My husband and I have been fortune enough to enjoy two action packed raft trips with Brad Frei and his crew. We have been more than pleased both times and look forward to joining them again. My husband loved the whitewater and kayaking adventure and I loved the fascinating side trips to caves, waterfalls, and hot springs. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

I took the raft trip last summer with Adventure Sun Valley. It was a really great experience. They were very well organized and experienced. We had the opportunity of using a one person kayak (if we wanted to), which was very exciting. What was really amazing was how they would have camp all set up at the end of our... More
