Idaho - famous rivers, well-known potatoes...

Whitewater vacations on the triple crown of Idaho rivers

If it weren’t for potatoes, Idaho would be known as the whitewater state; it is home to more miles of whitewater than any other state in the Lower 48. And we are the only outfitter licensed to offer whitewater river rafting trips on the triple crown of Idaho rivers:

The Middle Fork of the Salmon, The Main Salmon and The Selway.

While all three rivers are renowned for their wilderness setting and spectacular scenery, each trip is different.

Whitewater rafting on the Main Salmon River in IdahoMain Salmon River trips are gentle, warm and relaxing with fun, but not daunting whitewater; great for families (kids as young as 6 in August).

Whitewater rafting on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in IdahoRafting trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon feature clear water, great fishing, hot springs and lots of rapids; some easy, some not so easy.

Whitewater rafting on the Selway River in IdahoSelway River trips offer a chance to float through a very remote and rarely visited canyon and to experience some of the most challenging whitewater in the west. Only one group, with a maximum of 16 people including guides, is allowed to launch each day.

Whitewater rafting on the Middle Fork and Main Salmon rivers in IdahoAnd, if you are looking for a two-week, life-changing, non-stop journey into the wilderness, join us for a Middle-Main Combination trip and float 100 miles of the the Middle Fork and then "turn the corner" and continue for another 85 miles on the Main.

Together, you could spend 17 days in the wilderness and float over 230 miles of river and never see the same inch twice.
