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 shore excursions, 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 shore excursions 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. With groups of 11 or more, 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. With groups 10 or less, the outfitter may choose to only provide oar boats in this case, participants will not paddle.  In both cases, those who want more of a challenge can learn to navigate rapids on 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. Participants can be experienced rafters or newcomers who make this their introductory dip to test the waters.

Had a great time rafting the Salmon river. Wonderful group of ladies, great food, awesome guides. Camping was fun. Tents and mattresses very comfortable! Will definitely travel with green edventures in the future!

Amazing trip in a lot of ways! The Aggripah staff were wonderful cooks and guides. The scenery was out of this world. The experience of being in the wilderness will never be forgotten. My mettle was tested when it got very cold and windy, heavy dry bags to pack, and sleeping on the hard ground before I realized how the Thermarest was suppose to work. Meeting different types of women all over the U.S. with different thought patterns and lives than mine was eye opening. It was a demanding trip yet doable and educational. I believe the trip has strengthen my character. I would highly recommend the trip but the trip is not for the faint hearted!

I absolutely loved this Salmon River rafting trip with Tara Short and Green Edventures. Tara is very experienced in providing the perfect vacation adventure and always teams up with excellent partners such as Aggipah River Rafters. I loved the entire experience and enjoyed the challenges getting there and along the River but always felt safe. Great, great food, highly skilled and super friendly staff and other partners made the trip so memorable! Thanks once again Tara!

This was my first trip and I had an amazing experience. The views of the mountains and river were spectacular. The rafting guides were wonderful too, so friendly and knowledgeable. The food blew me away-- 3 delicious meals every day on the river and always a variety. Amazing women on an amazing journey. I hope to travel with Green Edventures again.

GreenEdventures Iceland Laugavegur Trek experience August 8-14, 2021 was one of the highlights of my life. It was an adventure that I was honored to share with close personal women friends, and acquaintances who now I call my friends. The landscape of Iceland is magical. Around every corner there is something new and unexpected that takes your breath away. Tara Short is an amazing leader, as are all the partners with whom she’s aligned. They are knowledgeable about the area, they communicate and teach, they are safe and concerned about the participants, but even more, they become part of the group! They are fun! Tara Short promotes laughter and has a spark about her that brings everyone together from the beginning to the end. We had a spectacular time sharing the sun, river crossings, gas station ice cream, hot springs, Blue Lagoon, and sleeping head to toe with each other. Our trek leader, Elo’, provided us with delicious food to nourish our bodies, and smiles and laugher to nourish our souls! We cheered each other on, and clinked glasses at the end to celebrate our accomplishment. I have and would recommend this trip to any free-spirited woman that wants to explore the beauty of the country, the quirkiness of Reykjavik and the travel in between. Thank you Tara Short and GreenEdventures. I look forward to new experiences with GreenEdventures! Diane Richardson

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
