Super trip with The River Co on the upper Salmon. the organization is one of the best groups that I have been with. Excellent guides attentive to their rafts, but also to the 3 of us in the inflatable kayaks, which I highly recommend. The river is class 2-3 and very exciting. Highly recommended.

We took The River Company for a 2 hour rafting trip and had 5 first-time rafters including triplet 11 year olds. What a great time we all had. They were terrific- very professional, yet fun. It was quite the thrill as we went through several Class II and III rapids and the boys "road the bull". Highly recommend them.

Raft the Salmon with this company! Bottom line-they run the river well but more importantly they run their company well. These folks care about their client's entire experience.

You could not ask for a better rafting company. Dave, the owner, was heavily invested in me having a great time. My Wife and kids floated the river with one of the guides who made their trip one to remember while I floated in a duckie with Dave as my guide in his kayak. The River Company is truely a... More

What a great time! We didn't know exactly what to expect when we booked our trip but some of our friends told us to take a day and run the Salmon River with The River Company. We are soooo glad we did it. The guides were friendly and very knowledgeable and the rafts were great. You can't find better scenery... More

Organizing an outing for a big family re-union was like herding cats. David stayed the course thru all our changes with incredible patience. All the participants said the rafting was the high point of the whole event. Our guides were fantastic -- friendly, good-humored, highly professional. The gear was first-class and the catered lunch excellent. I've rafted many rivers in... More

We had such a great time! I highly recommend The River Company! Dave and Heather run a wonderful operation. We went with another family, so there was one paddle boat and two duckies in our little group. Our guide, Christopher or Fer, was terrific, knowledgeable, playful and we all felt safe under his guidance. We did the lunch trip and... More

We stayed at the Redfish Lake Lodge and added a day river trip with The River Company. Our entire experience with The River Company was fantastic. I had to buy a Tshirt at the end to remind myself of the great day.

Booked this trip last minute. David, the owner, was awesome and very accommodating. Our spectacular day on the Salmon went without a glitch. Our guide Sarah was friendly, highly competent and made our 6 year old daughter feel at ease. The TRC crew was very professional, welcoming and enjoyable for spending time with on the river. Lunch was delicious and... More
