Spring Whitewater Rafting in Idaho

Rafting Trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in June

June is a mythical time to float the Middle Fork through the second deepest canyon in the country.  This is the time of the year when the river canyon has re-awakened to life after a long regenerative winter.  During late spring the rapids are at their peak, the canyon is vibrant with wildflowers and the waterfalls are absolutely pumping.  Depending on the conditions, our spring rafting trips either start where the Dagger Falls road ends at the Boundary Cr launch point or (more commonly) with a 25-minute scenic flight from the town of Stanley to Indian Creek airstrip. 

Due to the fast-moving water at this time of year, these trips emphasize full days of both on-river and off-river activities.  This is a great time to hike, relax in hot springs, and explore the hidden gems of the Middle Fork wilderness.  Teens & young adults especially thrive at this time of year on the Middle Fork.  If you and your group are eager to kick the adventure, history, biology, geology, hydrology, swift water safety, spirituality, and whitewater action into high gear, this is the time of the year for you.

Glamorous-Camping with Solitude is the opposite of roughing it. When you arrive at camp, your tent is set up and ready for you, and your guide will happily assist you with your items and help you settle in for your stay. Appetizers are ready as soon as the mid-day munchies set in, and a backcountry-gourmet masterpiece is served around a welcoming campfire as the sun sets over the canyon. Glamping with Solitude is designed to alleviate you of the busy work typically associated with camping, so you can enjoy every second you have on the Middle Fork to pursue your own interest.
All you will need are personal clothes and items, toiletries, personal liquor, and a fishing license, if applicable. (We will provide you with a pack list of the clothes you will need). Solitude provides all camping gear, sleeping bags, pillows, cots, wilderness mattresses, a mug, and a water bottle. Solitude will also provide you with a personal river Duffel for the trip, which is yours at the end of the trip!
Yes! A hot shower is available in the evenings. Biodegradable soap is preferred, and no soap may be used directly in the natural hot springs or the river.
Have a special request? By all means, ask! We are more than happy to give you the names of past guests to call. Our proudest reference is Orvis’ Solitude River Trips proudly provides an Orvis Endorsed Expedition! Check out our Idaho Fly Fishing Trip page.

Our trips are small and personable so they fill fast.
