The trip was really good - no exceptionally good,
no amazingly good. One ussually expects the brochures you recieve to
create some expectations that will never happen, not with yours. The
trip was better than any of us imagined it could be. Of course the
guides made the trip so much fun and tried very hard to make sure we got
everything we needed before we needed it. The food ! Sushi on a river trip - now thats way
Thanks again, and wish the guides the best.
The Wild and Scenic Lower Gorge
The Canyons trip is the perfect combination of adventure and
relaxation. It is truely the ideal whitewater rafting
trip for families, combining just the right amount of exciting
whitewater, swimming, games and relaxing on the beaches. The
Salmon River is the largest un-dammed river in the lower 48 states
giving it an abundance of pristine white sand beaches great for play and
overall camp quality. This rafting trip boasts the warmest water, the
fewest bugs and the biggest beaches.
The Lower Gorge of the Salmon River is the second deepest canyon in N.
America. The geological diversity will amaze as you pass through
spectacular landscapes, steep granite walls, and metamorphosed volcanic
gorges with columnar basalt formations.
Your guides will interpret history of the Nez Perce Indians and the
pictographs along the river. You will also visit Chinese pit
dwellings, abandoned homesteads, and old mining claims.
All of MRO Lower "Canyons" River Trips include Jet Back through Hells Canyon
to Pittsburgh landing where your just an hour back to Riggins. The jet
back gives you much more time to relax and enjoy the Salmon River
eliminating the unpopular last 20 miles on the Snake River to Heller Bar.
