Welcome to the Active Travel Adventures podcast where you'll find inspiration to lead a bigger life through adventure travel.

On each show we explore exciting multi-day active vacations from around the world where you have to MOVE!  You'll have to hike, bike, paddle, horseback ride (sometimes in combination) to propel yourself to the next destination.

If you're tired of typical vacations and are looking for a more authentic experience by exploring the landscapes and meeting the locals on your vacation, then this is your podcast!

All adventures will be doable for someone reasonably fit (I'm a 58 year old woman and I have to be able to do them).

Be sure to visit activetraveladventures.com to see photos and get more details, plus you can download the FREE Travel Planners for each destination!  These handy summaries summarize the tips and provide all sorts of helpful links to help you plan your trip.  You get them automatically if you subscribe to the newsletter.

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River in central Idaho is one of the earliest designated Wild and Scenic Rivers in the US and is considered the crown jewel of the system.

The Salmon River flows through the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area.The river flows through a steep canyon with 7000’ of vertical drop, making it deeper than the Grand Canyon.

Last summer, I joined a dozen other ladies, soon to be friends, on a week long rafting and boating trip down this remote, untouched absolutely stunning wilderness where there is no electricity, no cell phones, not even a road or building for more than 2 million square acres!

It’s just us, a dory aka paddle boat for those who choose not to raft, and three rafts for those that do, plus four very skilled female guides and a supply raft with two crew.

So picture this: it’s just us and the pines, the canyons and the eagles, and of course the river.

Get the inside scoop on what you need to know before you raft one of the world's best whitewater rafting runs! Complete Show Notes and a FREE Travel Planner can be found HERE

Get more details, see photos and videos of this remarkable rafting adventure!
