There is a green hole in the middle of Idaho. A spot refreshingly empty on your highway map. A place where pavement never was...and wild rivers still are...raw country, 20,000 square miles of it, and right through the middle runs the Salmon River- The River of No Return.
Cutting the second deepest canyon in North America, the Salmon River is a clear mountain river with pine forests and white sandy beaches. The canyon abounds in deserted homesteads and, of special interest to river travelers, natural hot springs: aah...feels good. One crowd appreciates this roadless country even more than us. Deer, bighorn sheep, moose, birds of prey, elk, bear and the frolicking river otter call this refuge home.
Translucent emerald water, responding to the drop and irregularities of the river bottom, form over forty rapids. That means you have first class whitewater on each day of the trip. Around July the hands-on types can request inflatable kayaks and meet the River of No Return on their own terms.
In a state that's second only to Alaska in designated wilderness areas, getting from point "A" to point "B" can take some doing. That's why we have included a scenic charter flight from Boise to Salmon, Idaho - gateway to our river put-in. Ninety-two life-changing river miles later we will return you to civilization in Boise.

As we close the 20th Century our relationship with wilderness has changed. Wild places are no longer feared. Now their scarcity and value is recognized. We all started there. No wonder our spirits are renewed when we return. We've been going there for over 47 years. Sharing the most spectacular landscapes on earth...
