About this trip

My1FitLife Salmon Whitewater Rafting Adventure 

Known as the “River of No Return” by early explorers, the Salmon is a big mountain river. It has big water with spring flows rivaling that of Colorado’s Grand Canyon and big, fun, roller-coaster style rapids; a big, incredibly beautiful, river corridor set in a massive wilderness with peaks rising over a mile above the river; huge sandy beaches shaded by towering pine and fir trees; big side creeks full of trout (creeks that would be called rivers in many parts of the world); a long history full of big personalities, characters, and stories; a ton of wildlife including Big Horn Sheep, Black Bear, and Bald Eagle; and most importantly it offers an authentic wilderness experience.

However, despite its size, history, remoteness, and ominous-sounding nickname, the Salmon River is incredibly friendly and comfortable. It features warm summer days lasting until nearly 10 in the evening, cool nights perfect for sleeping under the stars, water perfect for swimming, natural hot springs to soak in, perhaps the best beach camping anywhere, world-class trout fishing, a ton of hiking, and whitewater that is exciting yet safe. People have said that it feels wild, untouched, and rugged but at the same time comfortable, forgiving, and almost luxurious – a journey that combines a perfect beach vacation with the solitude, beauty, vast wilderness, and excitement of a mountain whitewater river expedition. 

Main Salmon River rafting is a trip everybody should experience!

This trip begins at the Stagecoach Inn in Salmon, Idaho. This night you will meet the rest of our My1FitLife Adventure group and your river guide.

The next morning we all  will be shuttled to Corn Creek where our river trip will begin. For the next 7 days and 6 nights you will enjoy the beautiful scenery, exciting rapids, and view a variety of wildlife.  The last day of your trip you will enjoy a few great rapids and then arrive at the take-out. From here you will be shuttled by bus back to Boise.

This is an oar run trip, not a motorized adventure like the Grand Canyon.

We will have approximately six rafts for this adventure with six-eight people per raft.

You can take anyone into the gym and motivate them to live fit for a day, but if you take them into nature, you can inspire them for life! That's the motto of Michelle Steinke-Baumgard and Keith Baumgard from My1FitLife. Six years ago, Michelle and Keith joined together and started what has become much more than just a fitness company; they have created a tribe, a community and a feeling that inspires you long after you leave their retreats. Michelle and Keith take fitness up a notch and remind you that living fit is not about making your body smaller, but instead, fitness is about making your life BIGGER!!! When you come for a retreat with My1FitLife you will accomplish big things; you will learn to be brave, to explore, to stretch your boundaries and to live your life to the fullest.


This was my first trip with this group and I was blown away! The people were amazing and 8 days on the Canyon filled my soul. So much adventuring from the big rapids to the hiking in the Canyon. I would highly recommend this group. Our outfitters Tour West were also excellent guides and super patient. The meals were amazing and they took great care in ensuring everyone was safe and having a good time. If you like adventure and want to do a bucket list trip with amazing people, this is for you!
The experience was great, the scenery was magnificent, the group of individuals was awesome and the guides were very skilled and had great stories to tell. It was a trip I would do again with this group. Thank you for the great adventure
Nothing but high praise for the whole trip: the initial meet and greet at dinner with our hosts Keith and Michelle, meeting the guides who would safely pilot us through amazing scenery and epic rapids, the camaraderie of, well, all of us, the amazing meals that were made by our guides before and after an often challenging day on the river, the daily hikes, the night camping under the stars, the challenges each day brought and the realization that you CAN do hard things and so much more. If you love the outdoors in any capacity, I highly recommend this trip of a lifetime. It will change you in so many (good) ways.
What an amazing adventure! I’m so glad I had the opportunity to travel with this group. I thought it would just be rafting and I got so much more than I ever anticipated. Looking forward to my next adventure with this group!!
This trip far exceeded my expectations. So much beauty in the surroundings, loved the rapids, hikes, canyoneering, waterfalls...all of it! The people I meet on these trips, including the guides, are always great people, make me laugh so hard and genuinely are just good humans♥️. Can't wait for my next adventure with this group!
