Scenic Driftboat Trips on the Lower Main Salmon
Helfrich River Adventures Salmon River Scenic Driftboat trips are run
in driftboats with two passengers and one guide per boat. The driftboat
trips run five days, four nights in length covering many miles of this
pristine wildlife environment.
The five day adventure takes you down the final 55 miles of the Salmon
Rivers Main Stem and 15 miles of the Snake River, travelling through some
of the most beautiful country in the US.
At each night's stop a deluxe camp is setup where we cook and BBQ steak,
fish, dutch oven biscuits, fresh salads and more all in fine Northwest
A list of suggested equipment is sent to each person on the trip, we furnish tents cooking and fishing gear as well as beer and soft drinks.
The classic high-rise rocker bottom McKenzie drift boats we use have been
improved upon over the past 80 years for use on the Northwest's famous
rivers. Not only can they run whitewater, but in the hands of our able
guides these stable boats can quietly and precisely maneuver into the
smallest canals and streams to view wildlife at it's most pristine.
Each drift boat carries 3 people, 2 guests and 1 guide.
Don't forget to bring the essentials such as binoculars, a camera, rain
gear, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and beverages. See our packing list here.
