Summer is just around the corner and that means it's almost river season! If you know you want to take a big rafting trip this year but you're not sure where to go (or better yet, how to do it) then look to our friends at MT Sobek. They lead an amazing trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in some of Idaho's most beautiful terrain. Not only will their team of expert guides lead you safely down over 100 rapids and 100 miles of river, they'll also ensure you never go hungry and that you sleep in total comfort. They even have solar-powered showers waiting for you at camp!

Get Your Adrenaline Pumping on the River

This is the main event! Of course, there is plenty of time on the river where the water is calm and you can relax and enjoy the sunshine, but when the rapids start to run, your heart will be pumping! 

Enjoy Camp Life

Good people, a crackling fire, and amazing food and drink make trips with MT Sobek the ultimate camping experience. It's amazing what these teams are able to accomplish at camp in such a remote destination.

Relaxation and Rejuvenation on the River 

From your morning coffee, to a mid-day soak, capped off with sunset overlooking the canyon, your days on the river will be filled with serenity and beautiful scenery. There may even be a hot springs pool or two along the way!
