End of the Fantastic 2014 Season
Our final trip of the season gets off the water today and we had yet another awesomely smooth season. Guests couldn't have been happier, our guides are already looking forward to next summer, and 2015 trips are filling up fast.
We'll leave you with some of our favorite pictures and quotes from the 2nd half of the season. See you next summer!
"The Middle Fork 100 mile wild river adventure is one you'll easily remember as THE trip of a lifetime.....however, the best part is, you can go on the trip of a lifetime again and again. We will."
"...we can't express how organized the trip was, how good the guides treated us and how awesome the whole experience was. We will be back with Echo in the future. The guides were knowledgable, hard working and just plain fun."
"ECHO's six day rafting trip down the middle fork of the Salmon River is OUTSTANDING! We have done several rafting trips down the Grand Canyon, as well as other trips in the US and internationally. The level of service is amazing! The food is terrific! The guides are, in addition to being skillful and professional, are delightful! Safety comes first but adventure is always an option. Highly recommended!"
"They were tremendous. Incredible river, great staff, excellent food, good weather...we could not ask for more."
"Incredible team, so fun, so inspiring for my daughter who loved them. We all enjoyed it and they made it an incredibly memorable trip. Each of them is exceptionally skilled on the river, skilled with people and skilled with the natural environment! The food also was perfect and delicious. The whole trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you for an transformative adventure!"
I loved everything about them. One of the best experiences of my life!
"Could not have asked for a better group. They adapted to the groups needs and desires and went above and beyond to provide an adventurous, entertaining and comfortable river trip through a world class canyon."
"All were engaging, worked extremely hard, and very professional. I would be thrilled to take another trip with this exact same group of guides. Food was outstanding."
"Guides were very professional on river, setting up/taking down camp, cooking, managing risk management, providing history of river system, previous explorers -basically taking care of us so we could play like little kids! And they still wanted to hang with us after their duties were done for the day. Being "on" for 6 days in a row is not always easy and I applaud all that they did for taking care of us and with a smile the whole time!"
"As a group, these guides were very very successful. They worked extremely hard, were highly organized, and over the top fun. They were attentive to individual needs, encouraging and patient when needed, and worked hard to get to know each individual guest. They also created opportunities for each guest to get to know the others. This was my second trip, a hugely successful one. I will continue to recommend Echo to others in the future. There could not be a more successful company for trips on the Middle Fork."
"Every time we go on a Echo trip we have high expectations, and each trip moves the bar a bit higher! You start out wondering if the group will mesh together "one more time", and it always does! At the end of the trip, you've formed and bonded with a new "river family"
