If you are looking to experience a trip of a lifetime, you will truly enjoy Idaho’s legendary Middle Fork of the Salmon River. With over 100 miles of crystal clear water, flowing through the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states, you’ll wind through pristine forest and canyons during your 6 day / 5 night river trip. But, it’s not just about the beauty of our trip’s location, it is really about the Adventure Sun Valley experience. Every one of our trips includes a combination of our magnificent scenery, friendly and professional/licensed guides, high-quality gear, along with our exclusive Pampered Camping™ service with exceptional gourmet food that will allow you to enjoy an adventure without roughing it. We are proud of our stellar safety track record and our exclusive high level of service that includes a Free Boise Shuttle that will pick you up and return you to the Boise Airport.

The Adventure Sun Valley experience includes a variety of boat types to enjoy and the truly adventurous can try their hand at running the rapids in their own inflatable kayak, and guests who are eager to fish the famous Middle Fork will have plenty of opportunities to cast a rod into the river’s crystal clear water. Adventure Sun Valley also welcomes experienced boaters who want to row their own rafts, but don’t want to deal with the hassles of transporting gear and food or applying for a permit. Throughout the journey, our licensed and professional guides are at your disposal both on and off the river; during the day they cheerfully lead nature hikes, assist novice fishermen and share fascinating tales of Middle Fork history. In the evening they enjoy setting up camp fires, organizing games and sharing camp fire stories – all under the incredible night stars found in this scenic and remote wilderness area.

Our rafting trips offer you a rare vacation option that allow you to escape the daily grind of life so you can disconnect and spend quality time with friends and family. This incredible experience has our guests returning time and again. Check out our launch dates and pricing.

Book Your 6 Day Trip



Our amazing trips feature gourmet food and a hot shower along with our “You Don’t Lift a Finger Service” ! At the end of each day, you’ll find a welcoming camp to greet you after a fun day on the river. The camp will be ready with tents, chairs, fire circle, toilet facility, hot shower and wash stations. Land on the beach, select your tent and a guide will deliver your bag so you can lay out your warm sleeping bag, change your clothing and settle in for the night. When you’re ready, join the group for appetizers, cold drinks and a warm fire … or if you prefer, relax in your tent, read a book or explore the area. After a delicious guide-prepared meal, most guests linger around the campfire sharing stories, stargazing, playing games and soaking up the magnificent scenery.

Guest Cancellation Policy: Because of the limited number of seats we are permitted to sell due to river management regulations, we cannot offer to take the financial loss associated with guest cancellations, even for emergencies. For this reason, in the case of a guest cancellation, deposits and payments are not refundable for any reason. We strongly suggest purchasing trip insurance. We are happy to transfer your seat to an alternate guest at no charge.


All trips include shared use of our oar rafts, paddle boats and inflatable kayaks, unless otherwise arranged.

Oar Raft – Let the guide row and enjoy the ride
Paddle Boat – Paddle a boat while a guide steers
Inflatable Kayak – Be the captain of your own boat

Guaranteed Fishing Boat

If you want to fish all day, every day, this is the choice for you. This boat is specifically designed for fishing and you will have a dedicated fishing guide to provide you with a world-class fishing adventure. Guaranteed fishing boats require advance notice.

Fishing Boat – This option allows maximum flexibility enabling you to leave camp early and arrive at camp late.

Advantages Of A Dedicated Fishing Boat

  • Is a lighter 14’ AIRE maneuverable rubber boat, enabling you to go places you never considered, scraping over ledges and rocks
  • Rubber is extremely quiet, an advantage to fishermen and wilderness lovers
  • Is customized with two mounted seats and a hard floor
  • Has a clean frame, to help keep lines untangled
  • Is operated by a dedicated fishing guide
  • Carries no gear, so you can leave camp earlier, arrive later, and linger at good fishing holes

Unlike a drift boat, two fishermen can comfortably fish at the same time in our AIRE fishing boats. They are more comfortable than any other fishing boat on the river, seats have high back support, there is a hard surface suspended floor to stand on and leg rests to lean against while casting. While all our guides are excellent, only the very best operate our dedicated fishing boats. This boat MUST be booked in advance of your trip.

Note: These boats cannot always be used on Cast & Blast trips because of the gear needed (guns, dogs, etc.), we will be happy to discuss any of your questions.
