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.
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.

When you have looked forward to something for over ten years and then finally have the chance to do it, it is difficult to believe if could be beyond your highest expectations, but your trip was. I could not even offer a suggestion for you. It was perfect. Many thanks for the most memorable vacation I’ve ever had.The Myer Family
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. Insert link to Maxwell picture here.
***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!
We appreciate you for providing our family the vacation of a lifetime! Your experienced staff made us feel welcome and safe at all times. We also like to comment on the fact that we were very nervous about the safety of our children on this trip. I have to say that there was not a time during our adventure that we worried about the kids. All your guides were fantastic with the children. They made sure that life jackets were on at all times, and they were tightened properly. They even made sure the kids had on enough sun screen and water to drink! By the second day, my husband and I were in different boats! Now that is saying something! Relaxing walks are the word of the day.The Roe Family
