Salmon RiverMcCall, Idaho is known by many as a whitewater mecca, with rivers such as the main Salmon, the Middle Fork of the Salmon, the Payette, and the Snake all in relatively close proximity. The area is to whitewater rafting what Yosemite is to rock climbing.

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is regarded by many, along with the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon as one of the greatest whitewater rafting trips -- a trip of a lifetime. Visit Mountain Travel-Sobek or Canyons, Inc to learn more about this adventure.

One of the most well regarded companies in Riggins is Exodus, offering both day and multiday trips on the Salmon River. Also operating on the Salmon River is Hell's Canyon Raft. In Hell's Canyon of the Snake (the deepest canyon in North America), Hell's Canyon Raft offers one day, and multiday trips on the Salmon and Snake Rivesr; journeys through a land rich in myth and geologic wonder with spectacular rock formations and exciting whitewater. Whether it's a day trip on the Salmon, or a multiday trip on the Middle Fork, Salmon or Snake, a whitewater trip is yet another great adventure in the McCall area.

Packing up Camp Salmon RiverAnd it's not just whitewater rafting that draws boating enthusiasts here, it's also kayaking the creeks, forks of the Salmon, or for the elite kayakers, the North Fork of the Payette. For those seeking a little less adrenaline, a canoe trip up the "meanders" section of the Payette above Big Payette Lake is one of the great flatwater river paddles.
