Lodge To Lodge Trip:
Join the River of No Return Wilderness Outfitters on a luxury rafting adventure. We will spend our days rafting, hiking and swimming along the whitewater’s of the Main Salmon River. A picnic lunch is included each day. Each night, we will visit a different lodge and enjoy a gourmet dinner. You will spend your night tucked away in a soft, comfy bed. As the sun rises, a hearty and delicious breakfast will be served before starting the day’s next adventure. As the rafting trip comes to an end, you will board a small plane, where sightseeing is a must, to return to Salmon, Idaho.

My kids and I went a week of wild rides, great food, and solid fun with RONR. It was amazing. Truly amazing. Words simply cannot describe the many ways in which our eyes were opened to the brave new world of white water rafting. Exhiliarating!
