Your Idaho Adventures Tour
Whitewater Rafting Trips
Idaho Adventures offers a variety of whitewater rafting experiences on the “River of No Return.” Their one-day, 13-mile guided tour takes you on family fun rapids that are appropriate for all ages and skill levels. The rafting trip lasts between four to six hours and includes a riverside lunch and snacks. After you tear up the Class III and IV rapids on the Salmon River, you get the bragging rights of conquering the same waterway that set back Lewis and Clark on their expedition through the American mountain west. Rafting adventures typically run daily from April through September.
Scenic River Floats
If you’re searching for something a little easier and relaxing, try one of Idaho Adventures scenic river floats. This two-hour journey takes you along a five to six-mile stretch of the Salmon River for a nice and easy way to see the breathtaking scenery from the water. They also have an extended seven-mile tour that gives you a taste of gentle Class II rapids in addition to lunch and beverages.
Casting a line in at one of the best fishing spots in the country is always a good idea when visiting Central Idaho. With several trip offerings that include steelhead trout and chinook salmon fishing experiences, Idaho Adventures experienced guides will help you reel in the catch of the day whether you’re a beginner or a pro angler. Their half-day and full-day trips typically run from June to September depending on the type of fish.
When planning an excursion with Idaho Adventures, remember to take into account that it’s about a two-hour drive from Redfish Lake Lodge.
