Newmont Mine Employees Group Salmon River Rafting Trip
August 8 – 10, 2009
Join us for a fun and exciting family rafting and camping adventure! This journey will take you through approximately 45-miles of the Salmon River, â€œRiver of No Returnâ€. The Salmon River is also recognized for being the second deepest canyon in the United States. The distractions of day-to-day city life simply do not exist here. At times youâ€™ll plunge through rapids or gently glide through peaceful sections past remnants of Native American and early pioneer settlements â€“ abandoned homesteads, cabins and early mines. The water is warmer than most mountain rivers, and there are plenty of rapids of varying difficulty from splashy Class II runs to more exciting Class III drops. You will camp along the riverâ€™s edge and your meals will be prepared by our highly skilled and darn friendly guides. The Dutch oven meals are among the highlights you will remember for years to come. All our guides are licensed and experienced and are there to make sure that your adventure is enjoyable and safe. Idaho Adventures has been showing guests the wonders of the Salmon River since 1973!
