Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Our gay rafting adventure begins near the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. The Main Salmon River is known as the "River of No Return", and runs cold and clear through vast, deep canyons and forests. Witness fascinating remnants of western mining culture and pioneer history. Perfect for all interests and abilities, the Main Salmon has friendly, deep pool-drop rapids. Experience America's unmatched beauty, wildness, and adventure in an unforgettable way.

Enjoy nature at it's best! The sage-covered hills are frequently dotted with moose, black bear, bighorn sheep, and the sky is filled with herons, cranes and golden eagles. This unspoiled wilderness was once home to the Sheepeater Indians but few others have called this remote landscape home.

Take a suspenseful plunge through wild rapids, then relax in the afternoon, fishing for the native west slope cutthroat trout. Wind down with a bracing dip into a "cold tub" of some of the clearest water you'll ever see, then after a gourmet dinner, fall asleep under a rich canopy of stars.

Idaho Salmon River Gay Rafting Adventure Itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Boise
Boise, Idaho gay adventure tourOur tour starts in the late afternoon with a meet and greet gathering at the hotel. Tonight's included lodging will be in a comfortable bed at one of Boise's boutique style accommodations. If you have any extra time, make sure to head downtown to enjoy some of Boise's vibrant night life. Downtown Boise is the cultural center, and has a variety of shopping and dining choices. Centrally located, 8th Street contains a pedestrian zone with sidewalk cafes and restaurants. This area is also known as the Basque District, which gives visitors to the Boise a rare chance to learn about and enjoy the city's Basque heritage.


Day 2 - Fly to the River
Idaho gay river adventure tourThis morning we will take a small charter plane, then shuttle bus, to our put-in location. Before we launch, we'll have thorough orientation, demonstrating kayak safety, raft safety and general river safety. Each day, guests are given the option of paddling an inflatable kayak, paddling with a team in a paddle raft, or just relaxing and accompanying a guide on one of the gear rafts.


Days 3 - 6 - Clear Water, Blue Skies, Peace and Quiet
Idaho gay rafting adventure tourYour day on the river begins with a hearty breakfast. After breaking camp, we will travel about 15 miles each day. Generally, we are on the water between 9 and 10 am, stopping for a mid-morning break to stretch, followed by lunch and a mid-afternoon snack break.

For those who want to kick back and relax, the oar rig might be the craft of choice. More adventurous types might tackle the rapids in a paddle raft, or a "ducky" (inflatable kayak). Experienced whitewater canoeists and kayakers with the appropriate skill level may choose to bring their own boat or paddle one of ours. Heading down the river, there's a lot to see: pictographs, abandoned miners' cabins, waterfalls, and wildlife. Mid-day lunch stops may also include a scenic hike or beach volleyball. Each day offers new opportunities, including hot springs, short hikes to see artifacts and pictographs, waterfalls and amazing vistas.

We typically pull into camp between 4 and 5 pm. While hors d'oeuvres and dinner are being prepared, there's always time for a hike or a chance to hook a trophy fish. And of course, as night falls, campfire stories abound and river tales get taller.


Day 7 - Fly Back to Boise
Gay Idaho adventure tour - campfireWhen we reach the end of our river run, we will fly back to Boise together from the small regional airport of McCall. We'll check back into our hotel in Boise in the late afternoon. Dinner tonight is on your own, but we won't be surprised if you've made many new friends this week, and you're ready to hit the town together!


Day 8 - Farewell Idaho
Most travelers will catch flights from Boise International Airport to begin their journeys home.

Trip FAQ

Where does the tour start and end?
This tour starts and ends in Boise, Idaho.


What is the Activity Level of This Tour?
Rafting, canoeing and kayaking are all choices on this amazing adventure. Although no experience is necessary, this tour is an excellent choice for those who have joined us on other rafting trips and would like something more advanced.


What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it's usually because they're looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn't have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you'll be traveling with friends. You don't need to pay the single supplement if you're traveling alone. We'll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.
