Jet Boat Tours

Main Salmon River and the “Frank Church” Wilderness

Idaho is home to the second deepest canyon in North America. This canyon was formed by the largest free flowing river in the United States called the Salmon River. This river has no dams or manmade obstructions, making the waters extremely untamed and exciting. The river carves through a few different mountain ranges, including the Bitterroot Range, Sawtooth and the Lehmi Range all through central and eastern Idaho.

The Salmon River is also known as the River of No Return and is deep rooted in American history and played a vital role during the gold rush of the mid-1800s. Settlements all along the river banks from that time make this area rich with historical sites that can still be seen today. Before the gold rush, the area was inhabited by a number of indigenous tribes including the Nez Perce. This tribe considered the river sacred because of all the sustenance it provided for them.
