Plan to fly into Boise (BOI) or Spokane (GEG). From Boise you can rent a car and take I-84 west to US-95 north and be there in 3 hours. From Spokane you take US-95 south and be there in 4 hours.
Customers will be responsible for shuttling their vehicles to the take-out and can contact H20 Idaho directly to help arrange this.
You'll be camping by the river, out under the stars in shared tents. H2O Idaho will provide landing pads, sleeping bags and tents.
If you are a solo traveler and would like your own tent, you'll need to request this directly with H2O Idaho. There is no extra charge for individual tents requested in advance.
The Salmon River guides pride themselves in their dutch oven cuisine. Steak and salmon feasts along with bountiful breakfasts are the norm with plenty of fresh bread, fruits, and vegetables. A smorgasbord of deli items are served at lunch to satisfy even the most particular dieter.

On the river:
Sunscreen lip balm
Sunglasses with straps
Cap or visor

Most things you'll need are included in the trip cost. However, you'll want to budget extra money for tips which should be approximately 20% of the trip price.
We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance for all trips. Travel insurance allows you to seek reimbursement if you are forced to cancel your trip for unforeseeable reasons, or if you need to cover medical help, emergency transport, and/or theft or accidental damage while traveling. For travel insurance, we recommend World Nomads.
