Stanley, ID Whitewater Rafting
The Salmon River is the longest remaining free flowing river in the lower 48, and it has the perfect combination of crystal-clear water, calm sandy beaches, and rapids – making it a top rafting destination. The Middle Fork stretch of the Salmon River has Class I to Class IV rapids. Rafting along the Middle Fork makes many people’s bucket lists because the area offers over 100 miles of nearly non-stop rapids – giving you the thrill of a lifetime! Book your rafting adventure online with The River Company or White Cloud Rafting right downtown Stanley. Rafting along Middle Fork is only possible during the summer months between May and August, and stops in early September for the salmon run. The best way to get here is flying into Sun Valley’s regional airport (SUN) in Hailey, and driving 75 miles north to this gateway to the Sawtooths.
