The not so small print.

The following description of the trip is from Pro Rafting Tours.
Why take a multi-day River Trip?
There are a multitude of benefits that make multi-day river trips appealing. Scenic solitude, huge sand beaches, adrenaline pounding rapids, deep river gorges, wide open river valleys, and the peace that comes with being in God’s creations are just a few of those reasons. These all bring with them good feelings; feelings of respect, awe, and reverence for the earth we live in and its Creator. When all's said and done though, a good river trip is defined by the people on the trip; the relationships built and the memories made. The truthfulness of this statement will come full circle as you sit around a campfire on day 5 and dream about your future. Multi-day river trips inspire creativity, confidence, and an unbound passion for life and learning.
So lets go together for a multi-day river trip and lets make memories that will last longer than the cliffs we see and the rapids we run.
Pro Rafting Tours is guide-owned and operated by true world travelers and adventurers who believe that relationships are built through challenging escapes, surrounded by awe inspiring beauty.
This will be the trip of a lifetime. These 6 days will change your whole life. When you are on your deathbed, the last thing you will remember are the days you spent at the office. It’s time for a "deathbed decision" with Pro Rafting Tours.

Shuttle and Logistics
This is one of the most remote river trips in the west. The shuttle to go from the put-in at Corn Creek to the take-out at Vinegar Creek takes over 9 hours one way. This makes it the longest shuttle of any multi-day trip in the west.
People flying into Boise
If you are flying into Boise please email us with your itinerary and phone number so we can talk about your options for getting to the river and back to Boise after your trip for your flight home.
Once you have your deposit in we will contact you with options to shuttle your vehicle around to the bottom. Rates run around $350/vehicle, plus gas. This makes it all the more appealing to fill your vehicle. If you have a car full of 5 people, it comes out to around $70/person for the shuttle. You can also take a jet boat shuttle up the river at the end or beginning of your trip. The idea is that your car is waiting for you at the end of the trip so you can drive home. The take-out is at Vinegar Creek or Carey Creek Boat Ramp.
Some of you may wish to stay near the put in. You can stay in Salmon, Idaho the night before your launch if you want. It’s about a 2 hour drive from Salmon to the put in at Corn Creek.
Where to Meet
Corn Creek Boat Ramp
If you are driving, make your way to Salmon, Idaho. From Salmon head North on 93 to North Fork, Idaho. From North Fork, turn West on Salmon River Road and follow the river downstream to the end of the road at the Corn Creek Boat Ramp.
When to Meet
12:00 Noon on August 9th
Main Salmon “River of No Return” Background and information
The Main Salmon River from Corn Creek to Vinegar Creek is one of the most highly regarded and prized multi-day whitewater rafting trips in North America. It is the most famous and talked about section of all 425 miles of the Salmon River. Take this once in a lifetime opportunity and gain access to as beautiful and as wild a canyon as can be found in the west. If you have been waiting to take a river trip on the perfect river, the wait is over. You now have the opportunity to run a river that many people would give almost anything to run.
Located in central Idaho in the heart of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, lies the 80 mile Wild section of the Salmon River. This section traverses the state of Idaho from east to west and was the water way that Lewis and Clark sought to the Pacific, but found unnavigable with their canoes of the time. The whitewater and scenery will be spectacular. Come prepared to have one of the best weeks of your life.
The Main Salmon River is a true classic for multi-day wilderness rafting in the west. Springs and snowmelt from the Sawtooth and Salmon River mountains feed this wild river. The Salmon River flows undammed for its 425-mile length and drains about 14,000 square miles all within the borders of Idaho. It is the longest free-flowing river in the lower 48 states. From elevations above 8,000 feet, the Salmon cascades to an elevation of 905 feet before it joins the Snake River in Hells Canyon, near the Idaho/Oregon border. The Salmon flows through a vast wilderness and the second deepest gorge on the continent. Only Hells Canyon in the Snake River is deeper. The Salmon’s granite-walled canyon is one-fifth of a mile deeper than the Grand Canyon. For approximately 180 miles, the Salmon River canyon is more than one mile deep.
