Reservation Information: Please Read

Booking: To book a trip, a non-refundable deposit of $750 per person is required.

Payments: Your remaining balance is due 90 days before your trip launch. Our office staff will notify you two weeks before the due date with a payment reminder.

Launch Site: Occasionally, due to river levels or other conditions, we are unable to run the first 25 miles of the Middle Fork. In this circumstance, we will begin the trip with a scenic backcountry flight to a landing strip next to the river. The cost of the flight is approximately $150 (2023 rate) per person and payment is made directly to the air taxi company. We will arrange this flight for our guests.

Cancellation Policy: IRJ is a small family business that operates under federal regulations that limit the number of guests per trip and the number of trips per season. When you book your reservation, we initiate preparations and arrangements with our vendors and guides. Your commitment also means that we must decline other potential guests who wish to book the spaces we’re holding for you. For these reasons, should you have to cancel your trip, deposits and all payments are non-refundable unless you can find a replacement for your reservation. In the event that you replace your reservation with another guest, all but half of your deposit per person will be refunded.

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: julia@idahoriverjourneys.com.

We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, leading to cancellations. To safeguard your investment in such situations, we recommend the purchase of a travel protection plan (see Trip Insurance below).

Trip Insurance: We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance. It is important that you protect your investment in this trip in the event of an unplanned injury, illness, or personal event.

*Although we offer the opportunity to fish on all of our trips, our September launches are structured specifically for fly-fishing. These small party fishing trips mean two fishermen and a guide per boat and are limited to 12 guests per trip. A few mid-September trips are available for groups of 8 - 12. These 2024 departure dates will be confirmed on October 1, 2023.  Call us for details.
