Welcome to ECHO River Trips

We offer family river trips on Idaho's Middle Fork of the Salmon and Oregon's Rogue River. We specialize in trips with healthy, delicious food and fun guides.

Our mission is to run the highest quality river trips possible: safe, well organized, ecologically sound, meaningful experiences. We offer the two best family river trips in the West: the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho and the Rogue River in Oregon. We have been running trips since 1972, and we are among the most experienced, most respected, and best run companies around.

We see river trips not only as wilderness adventures, but as social gatherings where long-term relationships can develop and strengthen. Many guests return year after year and bring family and friends. Everyone at ECHO is dedicated to giving you a warm, personal, friendly experience, from your first inquiry, to your farewell at the end of the trip.

We have a river trip for everyone! Our trips range from mild to wild and vary in length from three days to six days. Tell us what you are looking for, and we will find the trip that fits.

Formerly ECHO, we are running trips in conjunction with Northwest Rafting Company.
