Rafting Fun on the Salmon River in Idaho
For an exciting family summer vacation, you may wish to consider rafting on the Salmon River.
This adventure includes cascading down the “River of No Return,” but not to worry; this 4-day trip is very family-friendly. The trip length is between 56 and 74 miles, and is perfect for beginners to the more experience rafters.
The minimum age require is 5 years, and the trip begins and ends in Lewiston, Idaho.
Besides the fun-filled thrill of roaring down the rapids, you will visit many historical sites as well. The scenery is spectacular and there is no doubt your family will remember this adventure for years to come.
The 4-day trips commence on July 5 and run through September 13. Here is just a sample of what you can expect to encounter on this rafting trip:
* A visit to the Native American Rock Art Exhibit
* Green Canyon
* Cougar Canyon
* Snowhole Canyon
* Cottonwood Creek
* Blue Canyon
* Encounter rapids such as: Lorna’s Lulu, the Gobbler, and Bodacious Bounce
One of the special highlights of the trip is having children find their own rocks. Utilizing natural pigments, they draw their own rock art while the guide explains why the Native Americans did so. After each child has finished their work, they receive a lesson in “Leave No Trace” by going down to the river to washing off the all-natural art, and then putting the stone back where they found it.
Another fabulous part of this rafting trip is that you get to camp out every night along the river’s edge. The experienced guides provide all the comforts of home and ensure that safety is the number one priority.
At the culmination of this rafting trip, where the Snake River and Salmon River meet, you will arrive at the River of No Return. Continuing on the final journey via the Snake River, the convergence of states such as Oregon, Idaho, and Washington is realized.
If you are planning a summer vacation and prefer something a bit more adventurous, then rafting on the Salmon River will be the perfect vacation for you and your family.
