The rapids are roller-coaster ride thrills, water is warm and camping on huge white sand beaches make you think you are on the Riviera. « less

OARS and the guides did a great job for our family. 5 days and 4 nights. Kids had a great time, food was excellent, and rapids were perfect for our kids (Class II and III's). Water was a bit washed out so fishing was not great.

Truly, the people at ROW have this trip down. First, you can't even sign up for "Family Magic" trip unless you are bringing a kid or two (or more!) This means, fellow parents, that you don't have to stress about your darling child being a distraction or too loud or too... childish. Everyone there has a kid! The ROW team... More

Plan on having lunch at an excellent little (the only one) German restaurant in Asotin. They close mid afternoon so plan on that. Food was authentic and outstanding. Ok, the drive is easy and pretty. Well worth it.

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.
