Take it from this guest’s take on what she found to be different when rafting the Riggins area. Here is what she had to say – “I had the opportunity to raft numerous places across the country. But none of them come even close to my experience over here on the Salmon River. Not only were the guides the best I’ve met, but the food they prepared for our group was out of this world. To top it off, the Salmon river is beautiful. I will be back, hopefully on a multi-day trip next time round.”
