The Ultimate Father's Day Gift
Father’s Day is June 15th and coming right around the corner. Have you already picked out a gift? If not (or if you are looking for more), you may want to consider getting dad a six-day river vacation on the Middle Fork of the Salmon. A vacation on the Middle Fork is the perfect Father’s Day gift for the dad who loves the wilderness, excitement, hearty meals, fishing, and exploring.
Here are a few suggestions for choosing the “perfect” Middle Fork trip for dad:
1) Know the adventure he would enjoy the most. Early season trips often have higher water and, thus, are better for the adrenaline junkies. Later in the summer temperatures will warm, days will get longer, and the whitewater tones down a touch – these trips are perfect for those who want to try a little bit of everything: hiking, fishing, rafting, and kayaking. We also offer special fly-fishing trips that are perfect for the dad who loves to fish… and fish… and fish.
2) Find out what his summer schedule looks like. If you know what dates he has available to take-off for a week, your search for the perfect trip will be a lot easier. We offer trip dates that launch once every eight days. For a full view of our trip schedule, click here.
3) Learn more about the bookends of a Middle Fork trip. Maybe he could start his vacation in Sun Valley with a round of golf, spend a week on the Middle Fork, and then head up to Glacier National Park for some back country hiking? The possibilities are endless and we would love to help you plan this aspect of the vacation.
