Aggipah is the Shoshoni word for the Salmon River, which translates to big fish water. Aggipah River Trips is a company that has been running exceptional river rafting and fishing trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon longer than most. Aggipah runs six days on the river exploring the wonders of the Frank Church Wilderness offering something intriguing for everyone. Aggipah’s trips feature river rafting, fishing, hiking, hot springs, historical and natural interpretation, and all around family fun. Aggipah River Trips are fun all day while folks paddle inflatable kayaks for some added excitement, or maybe just relax on an oar rig while a professionally licensed guide ushers you down the river. The paddle raft is also a great option for those who enjoy a team building or family bonding experience. Aggipah river trips offer endless opportunities for viewing wildlife like bear and big horn sheep along the river’s edge; and at camp, guests indulge in culinary delight prepared by Dutch oven masters while enjoying peaceful evenings watching sunsets glisten to the river’s voice. During some afternoons, Aggipah’s founder Bill Burnt has been known to show folks how to pan for gold along the river bank, just like the old homesteaders in the canyon used to do. Bill Bases his outfit out of Salmon, Idaho, and is recognized as one of the oldest and most knowledgeable outfitters on the river.
Rafting through the Middle Fork of the Salmon River corridor with Aggipah is a great alternative to choosing Middle Fork River Expeditions, if for some reason our launch dates don’t correlate with you and your family’s plans; this river trip is undoubtedly the best way to see Idaho’s Frank Church Wilderness. Nowhere else in the lower 48 states can one experience 100 miles of dam free, motor-less, road-less river canyon. Unplug and reconnect with nature in one of the nation’s last remaining gems.
