Rock-n-Raft Combo Adventure

A full day adventure combining rock climbing in the morning with whitewater rafting in the afternoon. It’s the best of all worlds!

A Sawtooth vacation is about adventure – but sometimes there is so much to do, it’s hard to choose!

What if you didn’t have to choose? The Rock-n-Raft with Sawtooth Mountain Guides makes your planning easier. We’ve partnered with our friends at Sawtooth Adventure Company to offer a full day adventure combining rock climbing in the morning with whitewater rafting in the afternoon.

You’ll start at the scenic Redfish Lake Lodge, where we meet and climb at the Redfish boulder.  This granite boulder is is great for beginners, and we’ll cover a variety of techniques and skills on several climbs.

After Lunch at the Redfish Gazebo, you’ll head to Stanley, where Sawtooth Adventure Company will take over for an afternoon on the water. You’ll float the class III whitewater on the Salmon River, and will be shuttled back to Stanley. The Salmon River has the longest run of salmon in the Lower 48 – the exhausted Chinook you may see have traveled 900 miles from the Pacific ocean!

This is an excellent way to experience two exciting outdoor activities in one day, with no gear or previous experience required!
