While the 1954 movie with Marilyn Monroe made this river famous so long ago, we have our own reasons for loving the Salmon River. After all, what’s not to love? It has some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the Western United States. The fishing and wildlife of the area alone could draw visitors from all over the world, if it didn’t also feature great, class IV rapids and a small, slow moving pools that invite you to jump in and enjoy the nice, cool water. Outdoor temperatures during the day typically range from 85 to 95 degrees, which is perfect weather for rafting.
ROW Adventures provides multi-day trips along this gorgeous river, camping out on glistening, white-sand beaches. Each one of these Salmon River rafting trips is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and fill your camera with memories.
