Middle Fork of the Salmon River Family Rafting Trips

No adventure is a more bonding experience for a family than a river trip.  The Middle Fork of the Salmon provides the ideal setting for a family adventure. One of the original eight rivers in the nation designated as Wild and Scenic on October 2, 1968, the Middle Fork of the Salmon River flows 100 miles through the largest wilderness area in the USA. The canyon is the second deepest in North America and because of its remote location, man's presence in the area was somewhat limited, leaving it in the condition we see today. No motors are allowed in this wilderness (even electric toothbrushes!), so you can be sure you will “get away from it all”.

We provide many floating options to experience the river: oar boats, paddle rafts, inflatable kayaks and ISUP (inflatable stand up paddle) surf boards!

The river guides are seasoned professionals, licensed by the state of Idaho and First Aid Certified. They are expert river runners, magnificent cooks, great story tellers, and knowledgeable, helpful outdoorsmen. Join Eco Family Adventures for a magical family wilderness river vacation.

This trip is offered thru our travel partner Middle Fork River Expeditions.
