About this trip

 Ladies, join us in Idaho for an end of summer river rendezvous on our Main Salmon River women’s rafting adventure. Let the river lead the way as you drift into wilderness. Feel the thrill of white water rafting, enjoy opportunities for wildlife viewing, sleep under the stars, and learn about women of the past and present who have made a life on the river. You will paddle in good company, unplug from the world, and connect with nature.


Join us on our Main Salmon River Women’s Rafting Adventure for a 9-day adventure that includes 6-unforgettable days rafting 80 miles of the scenic Main Salmon River. This adventure combines exciting class III+ whitewater rafting with slower opportunities to enjoy the scenery of towering granite canyons, swimming in calm clear water from the shores of sandy white sand beaches, a soak in hot springs, short hiking trips, and chances to spot wildlife like birds, bighorn sheep, eagles, and bears.


The Salmon River canyon is a remote, unique place with a lot of history, with many of the famous settlers being women. Your expert rafting guides will break up your time on the water with guided hikes to prehistorical sites with pictographs, and visits to homesteads to help connect you with the human story of the river, and the notable women of the Great Frontier. 


The adventure begins in Boise with an overnight at an airport area hotel to allow flexible arrival times. The following morning, participants will take a 50 minute charter flight in a prop plane over Idaho’s wilderness and touch down in town of Salmon, Idaho. In Salmon, we will continue to get to know each other, meet our river guides, and explore some of the historical spots of the cute mountain town. After a night at a hotel, we will embark on an adventure on the Main Salmon River passing through the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. There will be four days of camping, and one night at a remote river lodge while rafting. The take out is in Riggins, we will overnight in McCall on day 8. On the final morning, A 2-hour group ground transfer will return participants to Boise for afternoon flights.


A rafting adventure for any woman.

Any active and healthy woman who can swim and be comfortable in and around water can join this trip. Participants can choose their ride style from active paddler taking instructions from the guide, or to passive passengers who kick back to enjoy the sites. Those who want more of a challenge can learn to navigate rapids with an inflatable kayak. 

The Main Salmon River is a perfect place to bring together women of all ages and backgrounds for a multi day rafting trip. Paddlers can be experienced rafters or newcomers who make this their introductory dip to test the waters.

I've been on many scuba diving trips, educational/cultural adventures and international travels. This was the best-organized and executed by FAR. All accommodations were very clean and welcoming. Our guides were knowledgeable and responsive to our individual interests in the natural world. I signed up for trip ONE WEEK ahead and thought--oh, I know what to pack! But, I didn't for THIS trip. Tara's packing list SAVED me. Her careful instructions let me bring all the RIGHT items. Food and activities were excellent. We were taken care of SO very well. Tara kept everything running right on schedule, which is sometimes challenging if cultures run on island time! I have wanted to see Baja and the Sea of Cortez for many years and finally got my wish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
thank you Cynthia for this rave review. It means to me that you took the time to write for everyone to see. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you on our adventure. Hope to see you again! -- tara

Most amazing trip I've ever been on and I've traveled to many places! I wanted an adventure and I got it. Plenty of physical activities in the 10-days including hiking, glacier trekking, swimming, horseback riding, and kayaking. All the ladies in our group - along with our two guides - were so much fun! Would totally book another trip with Green Edventures! - Nikki
I can't say enough positive things about this trip! The guide and trip leader were knowledgeable, entertaining, professional, and SO fun to travel with! The planned activities kept us busy and gave us an excellent feel for what Iceland had to offer. I definitely want to go back. The pre-trip information prepared me well for all possibilities of weather and challenge, and I realized that before this trip, I had been missing the camaraderie of traveling with an all-women group. I would definitely do another trip with Green Edventures! Cheryl
AMAZING! Absolutely amazing, from start to finish. The attention to detail and care provided by both Tara and Kristin was above all. I made lifelong friends I didn't know I needed and have unforgettable memories to last a lifetime. It was educational and intimate with just the right number of fellow viking sisters. Between glacier trekking, horseback riding, and the countless waterfalls an adventure is guaranteed. From the fantastic food to the amazing views Iceland provides; everything felt like a dream...but it's your real life! If you're even slightly considering going to Iceland this is the way to do it, you will not be disappointed.
Experience of a lifetime!! A VERY well planned out trip that kept us busy all day. We never had to figure out where to go or how to get there, the hardest decision of the day was deciding on what delicious food to choose for supper. If we ever had a problem or a question, our guides had or found the answer for us. So glad I found this travel group, I'm planning on using it again!!!
