Lower Salmon Gorge
The Lower Salmon Gorge rafting trip starts at Hammer Creek near White Bird ID. On a typical day we raft about 15-20 miles through geologically diverse canyons. Each day on the river brings a good mix of exciting rapids and deep calm pools. Camping on huge sandy beaches, we eat delicious food, and tell stories around the campfire until the stars come out. Before you know it, we’re arriving at the Snake river at the tail end of Hell’s Canyon. Another day on the river and our trip ends at Heller Bar where you are shuttled back to Riggins.

Salmon River Rafting
The Salmon River is the longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 US states. The Salmon River originates in the Sawtooth Mountains near Stanley, Idaho, and carves a path North towards Salmon, Idaho, from whence it runs West through the Frank Church Wilderness area. Near Vinegar Creek, the area becomes designated as recreational and flows for 112 miles past the town of Riggins and follows a portion of Highway 95 towards White Bird, ID, where a 52-mile stretch called the Lower Salmon Gorge or the Canyons of the Salmon River begins and eventually merges with the Snake River near the end of Hell’s Canyon.
The Salmon River is known for its scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, and recreational opportunities such as whitewater rafting, sport fishing, camping, hiking, relaxing, etc.
