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.

The WI Northwoods Adventure was great. This was my first Green Edventures trip. We had fabulous weather and plenty of activities. I didn't expect the wealth of knowledge and the wonderful leaders. I learned so much about nature and the land and the water and we were so busy - from the geology tour of waterfalls with Mike (who can brag about holding a 4+ billion year old meteorite? Me!), biking with Joe, bog hiking with Mary, mad canoeing with Rod to beat the rain back to the dock, and walking over the eskers in the woods with John, not to forget Licia, Emily, Rachel and Lori on the home front. And speaking of the home front, the meals repeared by Wild Whisk, Lola and (another) Lori, were fantastic. I know I'm forgetting someone, but everyone we met was terrific. It was a great, great week with a lively and fun bunch of women. I hated for it to be over and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Fun times!

This is my second Green Edventures women's tour. I had a small tumble from an E-bike, but it did not stop me from hiking in beautiful State parks, canoeing on fabulous lakes and rivers, touring a cranberry farm, seeing a noted weaver's studio, listening to guides and lecturers share their vast knowledge of the great outdoors, and much more. Great food catered to one's needs, great times, great people. Group leader Lori Anderson kept us organized and moving in a timely manner, so we didn't miss a thing. Rachel and Licia from the Discovery Center were just the best. The only "problem" is choosing which women's tour to go on next!

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!
By Ida B for Idaho 2021: Main Salmon River Women’s River Rafting Trip on 02 Sep, 2021
Thanks for taking the time to write your review, Ida. It was nice to meet you and glad you will have lifelong memories of your trip to Idaho on your first Green Edventures trip. The water condition in August were perfect and provided the right amount of float time with some exciting rapids, which you even took a solo run in a kayak! I know you had some experience already, but kudos to you!!! I would like to say to anyone reading this that our trips are meant to help you step outside your comfort zone. You will always be in an environment where you can ask for and receive help (e.g. equipment use and instruction). Wilderness experiences can be unpredictable, that is the nature of wilderness. We work very hard to minimize risk and increase their comfort by making sure everyone is prepared by providing an extremely detailed packing list. This way, participants have the right clothing and they don't bring too much stuff. We camp 4 nights and it is a team effort to unload all of the gear from the boats to the beach. The more efficient you are at packing the lighter your load. Regardless of what you bring, there is help available if you ask. Idaho in August can be cold and hot, and windy. Plan for it all.

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!

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?
