Fantastic experience. We took a family trip with nine of “the boys” on a 3 day excursion. Everett, Jazz, and Zack are wonderful guides who fit right into our group and became part of the family. They went out of the way to make everyone from age 16 to 73 feel comfortable. The food was unbelievable with cheese and wine plates and salmon and steak…well above what our group of knuckledraggers was used to. The fishing was only okay but we were able to catch and release some every day. I recommend including the inflatable kayaks as they added a new dimension to the rapids and we were able to all try them at some point. I highly recommend going with these guys on any trip and only wish we would have done a longer one. We’ll be back next year.

I can’t speak highly enough about Idaho Adventures - they were lightening-quick to respond to my float trip request, extremely friendly, and very efficient. This set the bar for my expectations pretty high, so I was pleasantly surprised when the in-person contact for our float trip, as well as our actual river experience, took everything up another notch! This was a family float that included two small children, and we felt safe and comfortable in our guide’s capable hands. If you’re thinking about a river trip, call these folks pronto!

This was a great experience. We just got back and unfortunately a large fire continues to burn the mountains on both sides of the river. While the smoke was not too bad down on the river, getting there proved to be a task for the crew but they still made it happen. All the staff / guides were phenomenal, excellent customer service, and the lunch provided was very good and accommodating to gluten free and nut allergies. The water was pretty low but the guide still made it fun with hitting as many rapids as possible and splashes here and there. Given the situation with the unexpected fires and closures the staff was willing to refund or change up the trip as requested. They were very flexible and understanding. We would highly recommend this group for a river rafting adventure!

Thank you for the great review! Such a shame what the fire did but you are one of the lucky few that got to run that stretch last year! I’m glad you enjoyed it so much and thank you again for saying such kind words about our company and for being so understanding!

We hadn't rafted in over 20 years and wanted to ease into it with the 3/4 day historic float trip. Our guide, Amelia and driver, Zack were great, getting the raft and other gear ready, having great conversations while we drifted downstream and through the sometimes small rapids. At the end, they had a delicious lunch ready for us.

Highly recommend. This introductory float has us wanting to come back next year for one of the white water trips.

We took a 3 day trip with teenage children. Lars and Zach were great guides, experienced and safety conscious, but could also be your own kids (if ours were older and wiser). The amount of time they put in every day on food prep, cleanup, packing etc was impressive and they went out of their way to make sure everyone's experience was the best it could be. Food was quite good. River was a bit low by the time we went, but was probably the right speed for our group. Lots of wildlife which was cool. Thumbs up.

We had an amazing float down the gentle town stretch of the Salmon River. Idaho Adventures provided rafts for over 60 of our friends and family who were in town for our wedding. They created a safe and fun experience for all our wedding guests, and even provided shuttle services for locals who tagged along in their own watercrafts. Everyone loved their guides, and appreciated getting to swim in the river along the way! I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to float, either the gentle stretch that we did or the more rapid-filled day stretch.

We went on a rafting trip a year ago with Jaz as well as a float in one of the small kayaks. This year, we wanted to 'float' a little further. However, due to the high/fast river my husband want able to get out at the planned 'pick up' spot. The Idaho Adventures staff jumped into action and made a quick decision to 'chase' him down the river to ensure his safety...all while staying calm and remaining professional!
We will be back.

Our family of four took a day trip with Everett & Jaz and it was awesome! This duo's river knowledge and experience is second to none and both are very personable. We made a few stops along the way to visit historic landmarks and Native American stone pictographs. Our lunch stop was delicious! We highly recommend anyone of any age to take your river trip with this group, you won't be disappointed.

My husband and kiddo has a wonderful time rafting down the Salmon River with Everett. Everett was an amazing guide who is not only a master of the rapids, but also of entertaining conversations. It was a thrilling and relaxing day for our family. Jazlyn provided transportation to and from rafting and was so kind. Highly recommend this company!

Fantastic experience spending 3 days on water with 2 nights camping. Camping locations were very scenic with beach shoreline dining for first night. Second night camping was on a ridge overlooking the Upper Salmon River. Our river guide Zack was great and provided information about the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area as well as "river guide humor". Our guide and gourmet chef Amelia took great care of us with setting up camp and driving us back from river take out. We were thrilled that we were able to make this trip. With the drought of 2021 causing low water levels along with surrounding fires the Idaho Adventures team were able to adjust with transport of supplies via road travel while our guide took us down river through newly created rapids! Loved the stop at abandoned gold mine. Recommend getting the professional pictures offer. Good quality! Great first multi-day rafting experience. We will definitely do this again
