As a true backpacking trip, we carry everything with us on the journey. Our guides carry most of the heavy equipment but do need assistance in setting up camp each afternoon. Typically guests help set up tents and help gather fire wood to help set the mood for the evening.
We camp in backpacking tents with inflatable sleeping pads and sleeping bags. Given the limited amount of kitchen gear we bring, you'll be amazed at how awesome our camp meals are.
Before and After Your Trip
We invite you to join us at the lodge the nights before and after your trip. Nestled on the banks of the Little Salmon River lies the Little Salmon Lodge, home of Northwest Voyageurs. The Lodge runs as a full bed & breakfast, featuring 12 guest rooms with private baths, a beautifully hand carved beer and wine bar, river side hot tub, great room, and the most hospitable staff around. With most adventures starting and returning to the Little Salmon Lodge, it is the perfect place to relax before and after your trip.
If you prefer to camp or have an RV, consider our neighbors up the road at the Canyon Pines RV Park. If beach camping without facilities is more your style, check out the many free camping options along the Salmon River just upstream (east) of Riggins.
