I just completed a 6 day trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with MFRE. In the last three years I've done the Main twice and Lower once but this trip was undoubtedly the best! MFRE's owner, James Ellsworth, is a true professional and has assembled a superb crew of guides. Jamie, our trip leader, did an excellent... More

We just finished our second trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. It was truly exceptional in every way. Clint, Scoop and the entire team worked tirelessly to make sure we had a fabulous trip and we did!! The food was gourmet , well planned and plentiful. I really can not think of one way to make this... More

These guys are great and made the trip a lot of fun for a raft supported kayaker. Food was great, guides were fun, can't say enough good things.

Brad Frei and his crew at Adventure Sun Valley are the best outfitters I've ever worked with. Professionalism and a heart for service make these guys the absolute tops! If you want to spend the trip of a lifetime with a group of guides that know their stuff and are a LOT of fun to be around, I couldn't recommend... More

I've been down the Middle Fork Salmon a dozen or so times with three outfitters and on private trips. Middle Fork River Expeditions is the best outfitter I've gone with for several reasons. The first reason is the crew's professional competence and experience. MFRE's crew is top of the line in that regard. All are highly trained and experienced, and... More

Middle Fork River Expeditions ("MFRE") took my four friends and me (the "Fab Five") down the Middle Fork of the Salmon in June of 2014. It was about the 20th river that I've rafted in the West, and for sheer scenery; continuous whitewater; weather; and hot springs, it was the best. The MFRE guides were extremely experienced, competent, considerate, and... More

I have travelled down the Middle Fork Salmon with Middle Fork Wilderness Outfitters 3 times and I have never been disappointed. The owners and guides are top notch. I could not fathom going on a commercial trip with anyone else. Last year I took my 12 year old niece, who had never camped or been on the river before, and... More

We have been on several rafting trips - The Colorado river - through the Grand Canyon (before the kids). IF YOU WANT THE BEST WHITEWATER/HIKING... More

Last summer (2013), I made my second trip with Rocky Mountain River Tours (RMRT). My first was in the summer of 2012 with 9 members of my family, but this trip was solo. I have to say that while I was skeptical that I would have as good of a time by myself, I had a BLAST. Also, the founders... More
