Imagine crystal clear water flowing through a canyon deeper than the Grand Canyon. Picture natural hot springs, fishing for blue ribbon trout, and more than 100 class I to III+ rapids in the largest wilderness area in the US.

The Middle Fork of the Salmon is a spectacular, remote, and pristine wilderness much as it was 100 years ago. Named by National Geographic as one of the top three river trips in the world, the Middle Fork provides the vacation of a lifetime and the perfect backdrop for a CME medical conference.

We allow plenty of time for relaxing, hiking, and soaking in hot springs. Fishing is world-class - it's common to catch over 100 fish during your six days.

The river is also at a "user-friendly" level in the fall giving participants a chance to experience optional inflatable kayaking.
