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

My husband and I have been down the Middle Fork of the Salmon many times with Adventure Sun Valley Company. We have gone with just the two of us (very romantic) and have invited friends and family. We have taken everyone from kids, adventurous adults and "scared stiff" grandmas along with us. It's was a huge success for every one... More

Definitely a week to remember! Adventure Sun Valley is the real deal thanks to Brad Frei and his great team. Beautiful scenery, knowledgeable guides, gourmet food...even hot showers! We loved every minute of our amazing trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Hoping to do this again soon!

Our trip with MFRE was excellent. When we reached the take out, we wanted to turn around and do it all over again. The area is an incredible place to see, let alone to camp in and traverse by river. The guides were excellent in all aspects, and we were very well fed and looked after. They were excellent company... More

Traveled with Echo down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in August 2014. The guides were knowledgeable and fun! The food is incredible and and of course the views of the country are breath-taking.Would highly recommend this trip to all.

My wife and I had a great trip floating the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in July. Guides were very knowledgable, fun and competent. Equipment was first-rate. This was our first guided raft trip (we've rafted by ourselves a lot but thought this river to be a bit too technical). Fishing was very good for hungry but smallish cutthroat... More

I was the other friend mentioned in Michael R's review. I have to concur with everything Mick has said and can only add what a hoot we had all made special but the good company of all of Clint's team. They made you feel like you weren't a client but at the same time also treated and spoilt you like... More
