Adventure Retreat | Main Salmon River


  • Canyons River Company McCall, ID (map)

CWWC is partnering with Anna Levesque of Mind Body Paddle (Girls at Play), Laura Fallon and Canyons River Company for an unforgettable women’s kayaking, rafting and yoga wilderness trip on the remote Main Salmon River in Idaho! This 80+ mile, 6-day journey rejuvenates your body, spirit and mind by connecting you with the flow of the river, the peacefulness of nature, the laughter of friends, awesome whitewater adventure and yoga. The Main is big western class III/IV water at its best: It’s so wide that we can choose between a wild ride down one side or a more conservative line on the other. Beautiful, big sandy beaches make for easy camping and inspiring yoga. Moose, black bear, bighorn sheep, and golden eagle are often spotted in the canyon. Did we mention that you get to soak in hot springs too?! You’ll also see the occasional jet boat that supplies the historical ranches along the river with mail, food, and other necessities.

Canyons River Company has been operating on the beautiful Salmon Challis National Forest for over 25 years and they know how to run awesome trips, including amazing food, beverages and comfort camping! Their experience combined with CWWC and Girls at Play’s attention to confidence building, camaraderie, transformation, empowerment and (most importantly) fun make this a trip of a lifetime. So don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to paddle an amazing river with amazing women!

This trip is open to ALL SKILL LEVELS! There is no paddling skill level required for this trip if you want to paddle an inflatable kayak or in a guided raft. It’s a great trip for women who want to experience a wilderness river trip. If your intention is to whitewater kayak the entire river then we request that you be experienced in class III and have a successful whitewater roll 70% of the time.

Cost of the trip includes: Kayak instruction/guiding with CWWC and Girls at Play staff, daily yoga class, professional guiding, gourmet meals, beverages, tents, dry bags, wet suits, river equipment, and, for experienced paddlers, the use of our canoes and kayaks.
