Take the Salmon River Challenge - SRC is a family owned and operated business located on the banks of Idaho'’s famous Salmon River in the small community of Riggins. We have perfected the most unique whitewater rafting trips in Idaho. SRC has a long history of integrity and complete customer satisfaction. In addition to our summer whitewater trips, we feature fall and spring steelhead, and small-mouthed bass fishing by drift boat. We also feature some of the finest upland bird hunting in the northwest!

Lisa, Thank you for joining us on the river. Shad really enjoyed sharing this experience with you! It was great to hear the stories about your nephew catching his first fish. Glad we could be a part of creating some great memories for both of you. See you again on the river. Dee More

Shad and Quinn were outstanding guides! My sisters and I did the full day float. The float was exciting and Shad took the time to share his knowledge about the area. We definitely recommend SRC for your next white water adventure.

I was on vacation in Idaho with my wife and we decided to spend some time in Riggins trying some rafting on the Salmon. Our experience was fantastic, the guides really know what they're doing. We'll be back as soon as possible!

SRC was just the family-friendly adventure that we were looking for. The guides are always professional and fun, and the other support staff are excellent as well. We enjoyed the entire experience from start to finish, everything from the food provided to the whitewater itself was great!

Took a trip with Lathan. Dennis, the owner, accommodated a late start for a rider so he could make the trip. We had a blast. They provided drinks and cookies on a three hour trip which was a nice treat on a hot day. Highly recommend this outfit if you are in Riggins. Professional and friendly. We had three people... More

This was my first guided rafting experience and it was amazing! I wish we would have been able to get it in earlier in the summer with high water as I think it would have been more thrilling, but it was still a blast! Our guide was very knowledgeable about not only the water but also the surrounding area/land and... More

This was the first experience of White Water Rafting. The guides were great and we had a great time. We just wish we had gone earlier in the year when the water was a little higher and planned a full day instead of a half day. Really great people!!!!!

Second time on the river with SRC. The Salmon River was flowing faster than normal for this time of year and was extremely dirty because of storms in the mountains. This made the trip even more exciting. Our family had two rafts rented and both guides Fred and Ben were outstanding. I think they had as much fun as we... More

This company is the best! From the beginning -- making a reservation -- to the very end -- the sharing of sweet fresh blackberries -- and every minute in between...this trip down the river was incredible. The owners are amazing. OMG, our guide, so great, so smart, so fun... THANK YOU.

I have been going with SRC for 20 years and have always been impressed with their rates, friendliness and safety. The ride is always spectacular and the guides are hunks.
