SIX OR TWELVE DAY RIVER ADVENTURES

MIDDLE FORK AND MAIN SALMON RIVERS, IDAHO

Canyons Crew

Our small “family” of around 25 talented individuals has been working together for many years….some nearly 25 years or more! We have an even balance of both male and female guides. In fact, we have more boatwomen on our staff than any other Middle Fork or Main Salmon outfitter. Our guides are not only skilled oarsmen, but also paddle raft captains, sweep boat drivers, and avid kayakers. Their experience, knowledge, dedication to their profession and sheer joy in what they do is unmatched. In traveling with Team Canyons, you are with some of the best in the industry and are guaranteed to feel like part of the family after your time with us on the river.

TEAM CANYONS has a longstanding tradition of creating a magical experience beyond just floating the river.
