We are headquartered in the tiny town of
North Fork, Idaho. We specialize in Float trips down the Main
Salmon River, which is the gateway to the Frank Church River of No
Return Wilderness area. We are a small river float company by
choice, priding ourselves on the excellent quality of our expeditions.
We specialize in personalized river trips but can accommodate larger
groups upon request. Our trips are wonderful family vacations
suitable for ages five and up.
We are a local company and reside here
year-round. Our guides are mature, interesting local
personalities, knowledgeable about the natural history, archaeology and
geology of the area. We love the beauty and grandeur of this river
wilderness and are excited about sharing it with you.
