In July 2012 I stumbled upon a review of RowAdventures in National Geographic Traveler magazine. Whitewater Rafting was on my :bucket list" and this seemed to meet my criteria. My daughter (35) and I (62) chose the five day Salmon River experience. To say we were impressed would be a gross understatement! What a marvelous experience. There were ten of... More

We rafted the Grand Canyon last year and this year chose to raft the Lower Salmon. This was a family trip with an 11 year old. To compare, the Grand Canyon was muddy cold water, blazing hot temps, and rocky outcrops to camp on. We truly enjoyed the scenery and geologic features of the GC but had a terrible guide... More

We honestly stumbled upon ROW's programs while looking around for a shorter whitewater trip out west. When we found the "Family Magic" trip that ROW offers down the Lower Salmon River, we jumped at it, and we are so glad that we did! ROW did a masterful job of matching our kids with other families of the same ages, and... More

The canyons and the river were perfect for a traveling family. We loved it. We went with Hell's Canyon Raft company and were spared the work usually involved when we camp. The team that guided our trip was fantastic and perfect for our 12 and 14-year-old children. We would go back again.

We drove from Lewiston to Boise along the river and it was incredible -- one of the most beautiful rivers anywhere. We didn't have time to stop, but we'd like to return when we have more time.

It is an area unspoiled, filled with the natural beauty of Idaho. The river itself meanders through the state through small communities as well as the backcountry.

Just got back from our second salmon river run with ROW. Our 5 and 8 year old loved it so much they asked to go 2 summers in a row (so did the patents). What's not to love? The expert guides? The mighty Salmon river (but never worried for my children's safety? The beautiful sand beaches? The great food? Sleeping... More

Highest recommedation for the Salmon River Canyons trip offered by ROW Adventures. We and another booked for one ot their "culinary adventures" trips. As it turned out we were the only ones on the trip - yet they did not cancel, but sent us on the river with two wonderful guides, even though I'm sure they lost money on the... More
