Our multi-day, all inclusive family trip started on the River of No Return in 2007 and have grown in popularity ever since. While all of out trips are welcoming for families, our Kid Trip on the River of No Return and the Teen Trip on the Middle Fork stand out. These two trips are catered to families with kids and teens, guaranteeing the ultimate family adventure.
How are these trip different?
We bulk-up the guide teams with our most kid-friendly, outgoing, fun loving staff that cannot help but show you a great time. The guides are professional, friendly, and most important great role models for your kids.
We bring along additional games and activities to keep the fun rolling all week long
The annual River Olympics is a SAC tradition. The games start on day 1 and ends with an awards ceremony on the final night. Your kids will take away prizes, lifelong nicknames and great memories .
We adapt the menu. While we continue our tradition of fabulously creative, fresh and healthy cuisine, but also add some kid-frinedly favorites.
Hard to believe that 2012 is all but in the books! 2013 will celebrate Sawtooth Adventure Company’s 13th season on the Salmon River. Every summer we get the opportunity to share this amazing corner of our country and expand our river family. Thank you, we are extremely grateful. We wish you all Healthy & Happy New Year!
Sawtooth Adventure Co’s annual training trip is a tradition. Every spring the SAC crew enters the lottery to pick up an early season middle fork permit. Considering SAC operates day trips on the Upper Salmon and the Main Salmon wilderness section, people ask why the Middle Fork? The MF is the perfect mix of technical rapids (similar to the Upper Salmon) and the components of a multi-day Idaho wilderness river trip like our Main Salmon Adventure. Not to mention tons of hot-springs and the opportunity to explore our own backyard.
Well trained, quality guides make all the difference . SAC’s training trip not only helps the crew sharpen their whitewater skills, but it is also a 5-day social experiment. There is not a better way to get to know your co-workers than on a wilderness river in Idaho. SAC’s new employee orientation occurs around a campfire while we hold our HR and marketing meetings between rapids on a raft. Senior guide staff has the opportunity to shape the rookie guides, while constantly learning tricks of the trade from each other. Guides refresh their swift-water rescue, wilderness medicine and culinary expertise in the middle of the largest wilderness in the US. The crew quickly gets to know one another on a personal level, that only 5-days on a river can offer. The teamwork and camaraderie gained through this experience benefits SAC every day, all summer long. Great guide teams are the #1 ingredient for great adventures!
