Hike the Salmon River

About this Adventure



Fact File:
Duration: 6 days
Price: 1,200 GBP





Raft down Idaho’s most famous river.

Idaho’s Salmon River is a location that offers a huge range of adventures centred around rafting down the river. With 100 rapids in 100 miles you’d be forgiven for thinking that a trip on the river was all about the rafting, but this foremost of wilderness rivers also provides some amazing fishing and hiking opportunities.

The options really are endless, and even if you have no intention of rafting you can wait until low water sends 10,000 river rats home, hike the 70-mile (113-kilometer) Middle Fork Trail through the largest wilderness in the Lower 48.

For combinations of the two however, Mountain Travel Sobek provide an excellent tour where, after rafting a section of the river, you pull over to the banks and set off away from the river, hiking to see wildlife ranging from the bighorn sheep to black bears, and everything in between.

Then, when you’ve had your fill of bear spotting you can relax at the side of the river and fly-fish to your heart’s content, or perhaps, if your muscles are weary from the rafting, relax in the hot springs that litter the route.

What we really appreciate with Mountain Travel Sobek is, however, the quality of the guides who make sure you won’t miss anything and can cater to your interests. It’s a truly personal adventure.

Who would have thought, back in 1969, that the efforts of a small, fledgling travel company, whose only aim was to “promote exploration and enjoyment of mountain wilderness areas by active participation,” would launch an entire industry? We never dreamed we were pioneers, never imagined our own passion for adventure would be so contagious.

We named the company Mountain Travel, in honor of the high places of the world we so loved to explore. Four years later, Sobek (named after the ancient Egyptian crocodile-headed water god who granted us safe passage on our first exploratory endeavor) was launched on a parallel path. These two illustrious companies combined forces in 1991 to create Mountain Travel Sobek.

The passion that fueled our early years lives strongly on and is evident in the travel experiences we continue to provide each year. On a Mountain Travel Sobek trip, you’ll discover a bounty of untold pleasures: the exhilaration of achievement as you stretch yourself and the boundaries of your horizons; the deep personal enrichment that comes from encountering the planet’s diverse people and wildlife; and the sheer fun that comes from being “out there.”

Mountain Travel Sobek provide a six-day tour costing £1,200.
