Riggins Idaho 1-day Rafting Trip on the Salmon River
Idaho is known as the "Whitewater State" and no trip is complete with some rafting. The Salmon River near Riggins, Idaho is the perfect day trip to experience Idaho's most cherished river, the mighty Salmon. Complete with big waves and warm water this trip will get the adrenaline pumping at times while also allowing ample swimming and relaxation opportunities.
What to Expect
Full day trip is available in rafts OR inflatable kayaks. The day starts at 8:30 am and 15 minute drive with your group in a van up river to our put-in location. At the put-in, the group will receive the equipment for the trip, including PFD’s for everyone and splash tops and helmets as requested. After getting everyone geared up the group will receive a thorough paddling orientation ensuring you have all the info you need to be successful during your river day. Apply the sunscreen and it’s time to start floating.

The day starts off with some mild whitewater to build those paddling skills and learn the techniques you will need later in the day. Prior to lunch the group will see one class III rapid with some big waves to start testing those paddling skills. Sometime around lunch time the group will pull over to the rivers edge for a riverside picnic and some swimming.

After lunch it’s back to the river for the whitewater filled afternoon. After floating past Riggins the whitewater picks up starting with Timezone Rapid. This thrilling bit of whitewater has a few holes and waves so big you want to try and miss them while navigating through the exciting medium sized waves. A few more rapids brings the inflatable kayakers to the surfing spot where we will spend some time learning how to surf our kayaks before continuing on.

Finally as the afternoon winds down with some tired arms, big smiles, and with lots of great rapids behind us, the group pulls into the takeout and the waiting van. The guides will quickly pack up all the gear and it’s into the van for a 10 minute ride back to your waiting car and the conclusion of the trip.
