This was a quality, family friendly excursion from start to finish. I cannot say enough about the beauty of the scenery, the professionalism of the guides, and the sheer fun we had! This is by far the best rafting experience I've ever had and I really appreciate how comfortable my 10 & 11 year old felt on the trip.

If you're looking for some great fishing, spectacular scenery, and an excellent guide service, give Brenda or Jess a call at Mountain River Outfitters (MRO) in Riggins ID. The lower Salmon is diverse and beautiful, and easily accessible. MRO is very reasonably priced, offers great value and is a "class act." I was really (and pleasantly) surprised -a welcoming cup...

Spent two days fishing for steelhead last week. Picked MRO because they fish from drift boats. They have a couple of rooms right behind the office which I found comfortable and convenient. I'm a fly fisherman so wanted to swing some flies and get some help with my Spey casting. John was an excellent and personable guide. We enjoyed our... More

My wife and I recently returned from a 3 night and 4 day float trip down the Snake river near Riggins, Idaho. The float included fishing for a variety of fish, and hunting for chukars. Mountain River Outfitters did an outstanding job from booking the trip, informing us of what we would need to bring and making each day a... More

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
