Plan ahead and book for 2019 and 2020!

Please consider making plans for 2019 and 2020 as trips are starting to book this far out from departure.  

Payments

Deposit: $500.00 per person, required to confirm reservation.
Balance: Payable by May 1 of the year you are booked.

Cancellation Policy

Deposits are refundable (less $150.00 service charge per person) if written notice is received by May 1 of the year you are booked. After May 1 your monies are non-refundable.  We encourage all participants to purchase Travel Insurance (see below).  If Middle Fork River Expeditions must cancel a trip due to water levels, weather conditions, wildfires or any other circumstances, your trip will be refunded or re-scheduled for the same date the next summer.  Custom trips have a separate payment and cancellation policy and final payment is due March 1 and all monies are non-refundable after March 1.  Of course, if you must cancel and you do not have trip insurance, we will try and sell your space and give you a full refund if we book someone (or you do).  This often happens with enough time to re-book the trip or spaces.

Trip Insurance

We highly recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance for the trip.  There are many options for insurance online.  You can also contact Travel Ex InsuranceSmall Linking Graphic.  Kids 18 and under are free. You must sign up within 21 days of making a deposit on the trip. Click the Travelex logo to sign up!  Also, Allianz Travel is really good.

High Water and Low Water Fly-ins for the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Please note that on high water trips on June 2, June 11 and June 20 there is a possibility (low) that the road to the put-in is closed due to too much snow.  The Forest Service does not plow the road.  If this is the case, we will need to fly everyone into Indian Creek which is an additional ~$130/person.  If you are a hard shell kayaker and we need to do this the charge to fly in a kayak is ~$150/boat.  Lastly, every year the river gets too low to float the upper section with guests and so we “deadhead” the rafts down to Indian Creek.  If this is the case, guests will need to fly into Indian Creek which is ~$130/person.  This fly-in usually happens around the Aug 8 departure.  These flights are usually a big highlight of the trip for guests and if this is needed you will still have an amazing experience.  This makes the trip 75 miles long verses 100, so you are rafting 12 miles a day verses 17 miles a day which allows you to hike and explore the canyon more than if you did the trip at low water from the top you would be spending a LOT of time on the rafts.
