Lower Salmon River FAQs

The Lower Salmon river rafting trip is truly one of a kind! The canyons are big, and the beaches are big, white, and sandy, like being at the ocean (we’ll argue better). The rapids are full of big splashy waves with names like Half-&-Half or Snow Hole.  The soaring views downriver & upriver make for a whitewater multiday trip that is a favorite for anyone who ever goes. Oregon River Experiences receives a lot of questions regarding this bucket list trip, so here are a few of our most commonly asked questions.
