Middle Fork of the Salmon CME
Explore Idaho with Wilderness & Travel Medicine
The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is the premier wilderness rafting trip in the US. It’s gin clear water flows 100 miles of Wild and Scenic free-flowing river, through the largest roadless wilderness area in the US and in a canyon that is deeper than the Grand Canyon. It has half a dozen natural hot springs throughout the canyon, blue ribbon trout fishing, and more than 100+ rapids grade I-III+. The Middle Fork of the Salmon is an unspoiled, remote and pristine wilderness much as it was 100 years ago or more. Named by National Geographic as one of the top 3 river trips in the world, the Middle Fork will provide you with a vacation of a lifetime as well as the perfect back drop for CME medical training.
This is one of the few trips on the Middle Fork where you get a fantastic, scenic flight to the put-in at Indian Creek. With this fall itinerary, you have more time to enjoy the multiple hot springs and hiking trails, the opportunity to man your own inflatable kayak and fly fish in what many consider the best season to fish on the Salmon!
Middle Fork River Expeditions, our local guide company, has been in business for over 60 years and that is no coincidence. MFRE was chosen as one of the top 3 river outfitters in the world by National Geographic Adventure magazine in 2008 and 2009. They focus on guests’ experience to not just see the river from a distance, but to experience it intimately with the leadership of experienced guides. Their mission is to allow river travellers the opportunity to unplug from modern society and recon-nect to oneself, family, and friends through nature’s lens. This adventure allows you to have a digital detox from technology and reconnect to a more simple, fulfilling pace of life. There is no Wi- Fi in the wilderness, but we promise you will find a much deeper connection.
Our equipment is specially designed for wilderness whitewater rafting, and offers mild and wild boat choices (oar boats, paddle boats, inflatable kayaks and stand up paddle boards). Our river guides are seasoned professionals, licensed by the state of Idaho and First Aid and Swiftwater Rescue Certified. They are expert river runners, magnificent cooks, great storytellers, and knowledgeable, helpful outdoorsmen and friends.
