Middle Fork Reservation Info Please Read

Idaho River Journeys offers only twelve to fourteen Middle Fork trips a season. Trips are limited to thirty participants including guides. Thanks to repeat bookings and referrals from past guests, nearly all our trips go out full. Please call us for current availability. If the trip you want is not available, give us a call anyway. Sometimes a party has a change of plans and we have openings that have not been posted yet.

A non-refundable deposit of $750 per person is required to confirm a reservation on the Middle Fork of the Salmon. The balance is due 90 days before departure. Should you have to cancel your trip, deposits, payments, and final payments are non-refundable. If you cancel, we do not give refunds or credit for future trips. Our cancellation policy is firm and we can not make exceptions. We operate under federal regulations, which restrict the number of guests per trip and the number of trips per season. If you cancel, try to find someone to take your place. If you need to cancel or make a substitution, please let us know as soon as possible. Call us at 208-756-8116 and send a follow-up email notification to: info@idahoriverjourneys.com.

June Experiences

The Middle Fork in early June is extraordinary. June 3 & June 12 are by far our most active and exhilarating trips. Our crew takes full advantage of the long days and explores some of the most incredible sites along the Middle Fork. The canyon transforms into a spectacular spring setting that we get to enjoy, explore and float through. To learn more about early June trips contact our office.

Our guides have been working together for a number of years and have a special synergy that our guests notice and appreciate. They know the river well and enjoy sharing their knowledge. Before your trip, view our Middle Fork Salmon Guide page to read their biographies.
