We did a week trip down the middle fork - gorgeous and pristine-but not Disneyland- you have to be careful.

Our trip was amazing- and our guides were fabulous. I thought we might be bored after a couple of days - but that was not the case at all. We were with a group of people who we... read more

I enjoyed rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River so much in July 2012, that !I returned in June 2016 this time with Adventure Sun Valley. The guides and the service they provided was excellent! Great food! Great time all week long!

We traveled with friends on an O.A.R.S. rafting trip. I really did not know what to expect as I was a first timer. We had perfect weather & great guides (Ned, Ashley, Shed, Prester, Diego, Steve, & Wyatt). The guides make the trip. They cooked wonderful meals and kept us entertained at night and led us down the beautiful Middle... More

Most amazing trip I've ever taken! Gorgeous country. Went with Middle Fork River Tours and couldn't have been happier with the service or the trip!

I've rafted both the Main and the Middle Fork of the Salmon, with different outfitters. Both were excellent. This summer we did a five day trip with Middle Fork River Tours (MFRT) and I can enthusiastically recommend them. The middle fork is a wilderness area, but MFRT brings all the comforts of home. The food is excellent and the hard... More

Second time downriver with Clint and Molly Frank; this one even better than two years ago. Came in early June this time (vice mid-August), were able to float the top 25 miles of the river. More whitewater, more fun, same standard of excellence for service, food and drink--"glamping" as it is meant to be. The crew is experienced and personable,... More

We traveled on a 6-day trip down the Middle Fork on the last trip of the season in early September - less whitewater, more leisure, always beautiful scenery. I have completed several other float trips and the skill and care shown by the guides equaled any previous trip with two other companies. The gear they supplied was in top shape... More

My wife and I just completed a 5 day 65 mile float through some of the most remote, wildest, & most beautiful country in the lower 48! The fly fishing was really fun for us as we are both 'beginners' ... the guides with Idaho River Journeys keep it simple and also provide historical ancedotal information along the way with... More

What an awesome experience. The Middle Fork is an unspoiled gem, and Northwest Rafting Company & ECHO River Trips know how to explore the beauty of the river while serving their clients' needs. Rafting with such a wonderful, funny, caring, and compassionate team made me wish the trip would never end. For me, this was the trip of a lifetime...rafting... More

A group of us decided to go on a 5 night 6 day rafting trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The whole team at Echo was great and easy to work with! Everything was very organized from the flights in to the back country, to the bus ride out. Our guides; Jed, Audrey, Brodie, and Zach were... More
