What our Guests are saying…

Great Experience, Best Guides

“One of the most memorable trips I’ve ever had was with Sawtooth Adventure Company (now RMRT). My boyfriend and I went on a 5 day rafting trip with SAC down the Salmon River. The guides were friendly, entertaining and very knowledgeable about the river. They knew the rapids well, along with history about the river and its early settlement. We passed several other guided groups along the river, and it seemed we were having a lot more fun than the other guided groups! The guides are also great cooks. Who would’ve thought you could eat amazing food while camping on a river?!

After our river trip, we stopped by their store in Stanley, ID. Everyone at the shop was friendly and helpful. They gave us beta on some great mountain biking trails and told us about some great local spots to hang out and what events were going on in town. Staying in Stanley was a great addition to an already fun trip.

We came to the river with strangers but left with many friends. I’m grateful we chose Sawtooth Adventure Company to take us on such an incredible adventure. Choosing a good rafting company to go with can be daunting (so many to choose from), but I highly recommend Sawtooth Adventure Company whether you’re going solo or with friends, family or business groups – they are the best!”
