The Salmon River, also known as “The River of No Return,” is one of the largest free-flowing rivers on the continent. In 1980, the Salmon River received the “Wild and Scenic” designation through congress. Less than .05% of the rivers in the US have received this designation. When you visit a “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. There are so few of these places left! With flows that rival the Colorado River, the Salmon offers some of the best whitewater in the country for honing your skills. Being on the Salmon, is a truly unique, life changing experience!
