Snowhole Canyon along the Lower Salmon
The Lower Salmon is one of the best all around family rafting adventures available. Our Salmon River 4-day rafting trip starts at the Hammer Creek Recreation Site and Boat Ramp near White Bird, Idaho. From here we explore 50 miles of the Lower Salmon River as it carves a dramatic canyon through the Columbia River basalts and much older Seven Devils formations. These are the Lower Gorges of the Salmon delivering dramatic vistas and big splashy rapids each day. Short stops break up the rafting action as we view ancient pictographs, see the remains of early mining camps, and visit historic Indian sites. Giant white-sand beaches provide a comfortable camp setting each evening. Swimming in the warm water, bocce, volleyball and other activities make each afternoon a perfect day at the beach. On our fourth day, we’ll reach the Salmon River’s end at its confluence with the Snake River in Hell’s Canyon. With the help of a motor we’ll enjoy a leisurely afternoon on the Snake River – keeping an eye out for big horn sheep and perhaps stopping to ponder the meaning of ancient petroglyphs. At Heller's Bar, your vehicle will be waiting for you. With plenty of sunshine, warm water and comfortable camping, the Lower Salmon delivers the very best comfortable family rafting adventure.
|"Your pre-planning, equipment, safety and personnel are very, very good. From reservation to actual trip we were very comfortable. The guides are pretty darn good cooks too! They seemed to be having as good a time as the guests even though we knew they were ever on point to keep us safe and comfortable. "
