Living in Sandpoint, ID, the beauty of the Clark Fork River so close to home was a great discovery. The entire day was a delight with a yummy lunch, play in the water and much laughter. The guides worked hard and made us all feel safe and comfortable.

We (my husband, son and I) just finished a trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with ROW Adventures and I can't say enough nice things about our guides: Jonah, John, Landon, Britt, Julia, Kirk and Max.

Enjoyed this guided tour down the Clark Fork River in Montana. Drove from Coeur d'Arlene to Superior, MT in the early morning. It was a beautiful drive with stunning views. Road construction in the mountains slowed us up, so plan extra time if coming from this area. Guides were experienced and friendly. Equipment was in like new condition. River conditions... More

I'm going to break this review into several parts: The guides, the river and canyon, and the rest. First, the guides were awesome. We were 14 guests and they were 5 crew. Between the 5 of them they had over 70 years of river guiding experience. We were in good hands. One of the really cool things was that their... More
