Action Whitewater Adventures has been providing our guests with 5-day Main Salmon rafting adventures every summer for the past 58 years!
Action Whitewater Adventures is one of the oldest and most experienced Salmon River outfitters in Idaho.
We are a family business built on a passion for whitewater rafting and for sharing the Main Salmon River with our guests.
Our guests become our friends and our goal is to help our friends make wonderful memories on the Salmon River that will last a life time. Come and join us on what we believe is the best wilderness whitewater river in the western United States.
Over the past 58 years we have rafted virtually every whitewater river in the West. We have chosen to raft on the Main Salmon River exclusively because we believe it is the best wilderness whitewater river in the United States for a number of reasons.(See below)

The West’s best wilderness river adventure
The Salmon River is undammed for its entire length. It is the last of the major undammed wild rivers in the western United States.
The Salmon River is famous for world class rapids and has twice the gradient of the Colorado River in Grand Canyon.
The Salmon River runs through the 2.367-million-acre Frank Church wilderness area which is the largest federally managed wilderness area in the lower 48 states
The Main Salmon River Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the United States and is deeper than Grand Canyon.
The Main Salmon River Canyon is home to a large variety of wild animals including, Elk, Deer, Moose, Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goats, Bobcats, Black Bear, Grey Wolves and Mountain Lions.
The Salmon River is crystal clear and because it is not dammed the river temperature is comfortable for swimming unlike most western rivers that are dammed and very cold.
The Main Salmon River is famous for pristine white sand beaches backed up to pine forests.
***There is NO cell phone coverage in the Salmon River Canyon. Our 5-Day Main Salmon trips are the perfect opportunity to get away from cell phones and the Internet for a week. Our guests tell us that this is a huge added bonus to the trip. Many articles talk about the benefits of unplugging from technology for a day. Our 5-day Main Salmon trips give you 5 times the benefit!
This was a fabulous trip. I felt as if I was a king for 5 days. The guides were some of the finest young people I have ever met-cheery, helpful, good-natured, well spoken, articulate-high class. The scenery was spectacular, food was great, and the camp sites lovely. Couldn’t have been better.
