MRO is the jewel of rafting companies in Riggins. They are totally professional in preparing for your trip, and the trip itself is memorable. They deserve all the accolades bestowed upon them and I cannot wait to ride the Salmon again with MRO!

We booked this full day activity through Travelzoo and had a fantastic trip. This was my first time to go white water rafting. Our guides Tom and Mary did an outstanding job of making sure we had tons of fun and yet I felt very safe. This was definitely a 5 star experience. I would highly recommend this company.

I was camping near Riggins. So when I would come into town. I would stop here for wifi and iced coffee. The counter people were friendly. The store was clean. They had numerous local souvenirs. It was a cool stop in a hot area.

Lots of rafting options in Riggins, but trust me, go with MRO! They have the best guides, boats, and service. Great value, even if you can only do a half day trip during your stay. Brenda's cookies are the best! Our guide was fun and knowledgeable about the area. He obviously enjoyed his job and didn't make us feel like... More

I targeted a trip which would be fun for my 9 and 12 year old grand kids. The trip was excellent. The best part was how the guide interacted with the kids. He added a lot of value by engaging with them thru-out the ride. Everything thing else went well, and the photos of the trip were dirt cheap.

This is my second year rafting with MRO, and they did NOT fail to make it even better than last year! The guides are helpful, knowledgeable, and wonderful sports! The food on their trips is FLAWLESS. Jeff, Jesse, Austin, Liam, and Heather went out of their way to ensure we had an awesome time, and their attention to detail and... More

Had a great overnight on the Salmon River with new friends! It was my sons first time white water rafting and now that’s all he talks about. The guides were great and very friendly. I would absolutely recommend these outfitters for a rafting trip. – Very helpful and made for a great mini Vacation. Thanks

My friends and I (adventure seekers in our twenties) sought out a river rafting trip in Riggins, ID because we'd heard it is a great stretch of the Salmon River. It is indeed a great stretch of river - if you're looking for a leisurely jaunt rather than a wild ride. Mountain River Outfitters does list the rapids classification on... More

We decided to do the full day trip, from about 9 o'clock in the morning to 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Being that this was in August, the rivers were lower than they were in the Spring and Summer. Even still the rapids that we went over were incredibly fun! The bus driver was funny and made the trip to... More

I'm not a frequent commentator on TripAdvisor but felt the need to chime in. My 7 year old and I arrived an hour late for our half day outing, having driven over two hours from Lewiston Idaho (note: Riggins is located in the MOUNTAIN time zone, not PACIFIC...stupid me...easy mistake to make as it's only 3 miles from the timeline...
