We did a 2-day run on the Salmon with MRO. They took very good care of us! It was my kids' first rafting trip (8 & 5 yo). The guide (Michelle) and our supplier/cook (Luke) were fabulous. We felt very safe, taken care of, while also allowed to push ourselves at the same time! All the gear was in great... More

We took the two day rafting trip down the Salmon River with MRO and absolutely loved every minute of it! The river itself was spectacular -and surrounded by designated wilderness areas. We saw amazing wildlife including bears, bighorn sheep and a large variety of fascinating birds. MRO paced the trip well as we had ample time for stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking,... More

Did the 2 day rafting trip with Mountain River Outfitters and was outstanding from start to finish! John, our guide, was excellent! Funny, full of facts, good cook. I was quite surprised that they would run the trip with only 3 of us, but they did and it was amazing! The food was delicious, there's something about dutch oven cooking... More

This was our first rafting adventure, so we did not know what to expect. We fell into MRO because there was a screw-up in reservations with the first place we contacted....What Luck!! We did a 2-day adventure with Heather & George running the rafts. We were pampered with excellent service and hospitality from start to finish. The meals were fantastic,... More

This review is for a full day trip on the Salmon River. Brenda, one of the owners of Mountain River Outfitters (MRO), was our first contact when scheduling the trip and she was courteous and helpful. She got us booked quickly and the check-in was done via internet forms, so when it was time to go we just showed up... More

Mountain River Outfitters is an excellent company. My experience was outstanding from start to finish. Brenda, who took our reservations, was conscientious and professional. She was responsive and attentive, and followed up consistently. We did the full day trip down the Salmon. Steven our guide was outstanding. Do yourself a favor and ask for him. He was incredibly knowledgeable about... More

Fantastic day on the salmon river with Jon as our guide. Great scenery, just the right amount of white water, great banter, loads of info and superb lunch. Can't recommend them enough.

No words can even begin to describe this experience. The combination of beauty, instant relaxation and excitement was like nothing I have ever experienced. Our two day rafting trip was more of a vacation to myself and teenage son than any vacation either of us has EVER been on. The guides Elizabeth, Luke, and George were fantastic and the food... More
