Trip Highlights

  • Rich history featuring indigenous pictographs and relics from early explorers

  • Beaches, waterfalls, natural hot springs, fun whitewater - the Main Salmon has it all!

  • Over 100 exciting rapids (up to class III+). Experience them from a raft or inflatable kayak - the choice is yours!

Idaho’s Main Stem of the Salmon River accesses the most pristine terrain in the US, slicing through the 2.3 million-acre Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area (the largest roadless area in the country). The Main Salmon River is famous for its large sandy beaches for camping, warm water (70+F in September) for swimming, great trout fishing, fun whitewater, and arguably the best hot spring in the Pacific Northwest. No river displays all these characteristics quite like the Main Salmon River. It also boasts a canyon that is deeper than the Grand Canyon. The river has recently become famous as one of the best stand-up paddleboard (SUP) river trips in the world for its warm water and fun/safe wave-train rapids.

The early river runners called the Salmon River the "River of No Return" because their wooden boats were scrapped at the end of their journey and used to build many of the cabins you see in the canyon. The Salmon River is chock full of historic miner’s cabins, homesteads, and Shoshone Sheepeater and Nez Pierce Indian pictographs and pit houses -- and is a river you’ll likely want to return to time and again!
