There are a lot of outfitters that can manage the river, but few, if any, can match the overall experience of a Helfrich trip. Regardless of your experience level, they make you feel inclusive from the very beginning to the last minute on the way home. A memory is the one thing that no one can take from an individual. My wife of 40 years has very high standards when it comes to travel experiences, yet when I mention the possibility of a Helfrich trip, regardless of location, it rises to the top. Easily surpassing Mexico, Hawaii, Europe or Asia, it doesn't matter where we book a trip, but it does matter with whom we travel with. Without going into the details , as that could be a book, I can easily say that a Helfrich river experience is a memory made that is hard to surpass, and one that is easily recalled.

We did the Middle Fork trip with Helfrich in 2012 and enoyed it so much, we signed up to do it again in 2013. There is not one thing--not ONE--that I can possibly think of that Helfrich could do to make this a better trip. From help booking the trip (Sherill & Ken), to our orientation in Stanley, to the trip itself (accomodations, food, guides, cultural information), this is THE BEST trip and outfitter you could possibly ask for. Wait until you fall asleep in your cozy tent--errected by someone wonderful on Ken and Kelsey's crew--and wake up to Eggs Benedict that rivals that from any fancy restaurant. The guides will go out of their way to help you catch fish, find the best hike, run the rapids and see the local pictographs. This trip cannot be beat, cannot!!!!
