100 Miles of River And Sold-Out Seats in Idaho – White Water Company for Sale in Montana

ON THE SALMON RIVER, Idaho — Many people who take raft trips through the wilderness here dream of returning to run their own river-rafting tours. Few people do so, and even fewer make money at it.

Dave and Sheila Mills defied the odds, deciding long ago they could love their work and make a good living. The husband-and-wife team started Rocky Mountain River Tours about 30 years ago, and their 17 trips annually on the Middle Fork tributary to the main Salmon River are normally filled to capacity — 24 seats. The six-day trips, offered between May and September, start to book up in the fall for the following year.

These high-end river trips, which cost up to $2,000 per person, meander through Idaho’s roadless Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, where mechanized vehicles — even bicycles — aren’t permitted. Rafters paddle the rapids on the 100-mile trip and hike, fish or swim when the group stops at each day’s campsite. In the evening, they eat gourmet meals while gazing at the stars or listening to guides give nature talks. They fall asleep listening to the calls of wolves, coyote and other wildlife.
