The River Company provided a great day on the river. Our guide Cass was knowledgeable, fun, and made us feel safe. The food provided at lunch hit the spot! The whole staff showed professionalism, but made sure everyone was laughing and smiling through those rapids! 5 stars all around.

We returned to Stanley, Id once again for more summer fun. The highlight of our trip was white water rafting with The River Company. We were part of a family reunion with people from 5 years old to 65 years old. Everyone had a great time with plenty of excitement for all ages. The River Company guides are great as... More

I went rafting last week with The River Company in Stanley, Idaho. I was worried about being cold because the sun was hidden by clouds and the temps were in the 70s but they gave me and my family each a warm fleece jacket and splash top to wear and that did the trick. Our guide, Ian, was funny and... More

We held our family reunion in Stanley and one day ran the river with the River Company. They were very professional and gave us a great experience we will all remember. They ran on time and their guides were knowlegible of the river and fun to be with. We did the lunch trip and the food was tasty and plentiful.... More

The river was relatively low but it was a GREAT first trip for our 7 & 9 yr old kids. There were a few bigger rapids and the rest was an easy float. The River company staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The lunch was fantastic! A good mix of healthy and yummy, with a PB & J option! Our... More

We had a very exciting and fun 4th of July rafting with The River Company! Our guide, Mike Bachman, was fun, funny, and very safe and professional. He put us completely at ease while taking our 4 year old daughter white water rafting for the first time! We will definitely be taking her back for another great adventure with this... More

It's been 20 years since I floated the Salmon with The River Company. Dave, the owner returned my phone call right away to discuss the 1/2 day float trip & the safety of my 3 children. It was a great day for our family & brought back amazing memories of piece of cake rapids and the narrows that I had... More
