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. We highly recommend travel insurance to protect your travel investment. 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.

In today’s changing travel environment, it’s important to protect your travel investment so you can relax and enjoy your trip.

Water, weather or other conditions dictate where we launch our Middle Fork trips. For trips that meet in Stanley, we launch from Boundary Creek, which is accessible by bus, or from Indian Creek, which is accessible by air. If we launch from Indian Creek, the cost of the flight is not included in our trip fare. For our August 17 and 25 trips, the cost of the flight from Stanley is included in our trip fare. 

All reservations are subject to a $4/day Recreation Enhancement Act Fee.
