You will need overnight lodging in Stanley, Idaho, the night before your river trip because you are required to attend a rafter orientation meeting on the evening prior to our morning launch. Depending on the time of your return flight or how late in the day you want to drive home, you may also need overnight lodging in Salmon, Idaho, where our trip ends.
For example: If your river trip is scheduled from July 16 through July 21, you would need to arrange overnight lodging in Stanley for July 15 in order to attend our orientation meeting. And if you are unable to schedule an evening flight out of Salmon on the last day of the trip (or you don't want to drive late at night), you would need to book overnight lodging for the last day, in this case, July 21.
For Stanley and Salmon lodging options, please see the links on our Trip Planning Resources page. When making lodging arrangements, please keep in mind that, on the morning of our launch, we will depart from Mountain Village Lodge in Stanley.
If you still have questions, notify us of your travel arrangements ahead of time, and we'll gladly help you plan out all the details.
