Jet Boating in Riggins
Jet Boating icon.

Enjoy a journey so remote that you can get away from it all. The  river miles along the Salmon River, also known as The River of No Return, are very scenic. The Salmon River flows by old-growth Ponderosa pine trees, white sandy beaches, and vertical granite rock formations in the Salmon River canyon.
