Lower Salmon Raft Rentals
The Lower Salmon is without question one of the last great multi-day river trips one can do without having to go through a lottery for a permit. This incredible trip can be done in anywhere between 4 and 8 days, includes 4 scenic gorges, many class II and III rapids and at standard summer flows, 2 class IV rapids. This trip is typically run from Hammer Creek on the Salmon River to Heller Bar on the Snake River. Most people spend 3 nights on the Salmon and one night on the Snake River to break up the last twenty miles of flat water on the snake.
If you just rent the raft you will need to pick it up before your trip and return it to us at the conclusion. If you would like us to drop the gear at Hammer Creek and pickup at Heller just add the pickup/drop-off option to your package. It is a flat rate for UP TO 4 rafts.
Please remember that both the put-in and takeout for this trip are on PACIFIC TIME. If you are driving up from the south you will switch time-zones in Riggins.
We do not rent gear for the Lower Salmon at flows over 15,000 CFS on the White Bird Idaho Gauge.
