The Salmon River also known as “The River of No Return,” is one of the largest free-flowing undammed rivers on the continent. In 1980 the Salmon River received the “Wild and Scenic” designation (less than .05% of the rivers in the US have received this designation). When you visit an “Wild and Scenic River” you can expect a quality river experience. From the pristine crystal-clear water, to the abundant wildlife, you have a river actively preserved in its natural form. The deep canyon gorges have exposed some of the oldest known rocks in the state of Idaho, at 1.5 billion years old. This half day trip will start at the SRAC Base Camp, located just 13 miles West of North Fork, where you can park your vehicle. We will then, load up on the bus, and head upstream. Our experienced guides will lead you through a Class I-II stretch of water and share some history of the area. Join us for the spectacular journey down the famous “River of No Return.”
