Looking for a great white water experience on the Middle Fork of the Salmon...then ROW Adventures is the right choice. Great guides and gear, spectacular scenery, food that will amaze you, all add up to a wonderful 100 mile wilderness adventure.. "A man who has abandoned nature has abandoned himself"...you definitely will reconnect with nature on this exciting trip...

Just returned from my first white water experience on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Canyons RIver Company. I had the time of my life with an experience that was perfect from beginning to end!
The majesty of this beautiful place was matched by the professional expertise of Canyons River company. Without the superior quality of their equipment to the delicious preparation and thoughtfulness of every meal, this potentially difficult trip for a rafting newbie could have been far less successful! Their comprehensive questionnaire assures that your tastes and needs will be fully met. If you bring the desire and energy, they will make sure that you have a superb experience. The rafting was always fun, and the two hikes one day were a challenge that I was astonished to finish. Don't book with anyone else - the owner, and staff have found the best guides and equipment in the business assuring a trip you'll remember the rest of your life.

I have been on the Salmon Main and Middle Fork more times than I can remember (17 or 18); every time with Canyons, Inc. The guides, the food, the safety, the river experience is without parallel.

Our family of five (5) from Florida was seeking rare family vacation with kids 27, 24, 22. We chose Canyons River Company for a Rafting trip on the Middle Fork. Greg McFadden and his crew at Canyons River Company are real pros on the Salmon River. They have been doing this for many years and have wonderful insights on the rich history of the River and the Region. What majestic scenery the entire way. The best thing about the trip, however, was the Canyons team. They saw to our every need and food was excellent. Each day concluded with conversation around the campfire under the stars. You won't be disappointed.

This is the third successive year the Rangers Charity Foundation based in Glasgow, Scotland has worked with Middle Fork River Expeditions for a charity challenge trip on this fantastic wild and beautiful river - and with good reason! The effect that MFRE generates between its staff and guests in this special place through rafting makes for the some of the most powerful of personal and team experiences you can have. We're delighted to have built up a great relationship with James Ellsworth and his exceptional guides and look forward to coming together for more wild and wonderful river trips in the future!
