I have tried to decide what made the trip so special, other than the wonderful trip itself. I finally decided that rather than feeling like someone who had hired someone else to take them on a trip, it felt like going with friends. There was none of this "you are the client" type of thing.

Thanks for one of the most memorable vacations ever. We're hoping to bring the whole family for a trip some day…as soon as our grandson is old enough. Everything was top-notch and we especially enjoyed your company.

I want to thank you for a fantastic trip on the Lower Salmon River. I still think about it daily. It was a trip and experience that I will never forget. Your organization, equipment and culinary skills are second to none.

I can't believe it has been a whole year since we gathered for our wonderful never-to-be forgotten trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with you. Everyone is still talking about it with joy and delight. Our family will hold the experience in our hearts and mind’s eye forever. There was a spiritual quality to the adventure as well as all the fun, which reinforced the affection between family members.

About Aggipah …

Pictured: Aggipah River Trips Owner Bill Bernt on the river Aggipah Peak Overlooking the River of No Return Wilderness.

Aggipah Peak is the second-highest point in the River of No Return Wilderness Area, above the lower end of the Middle Fork of the Salmon. The name comes from the Shoshone Indian term for the Salmon River, which roughly translates to “Big Fish Water.” When we began our river business in the late ’70s, we chose “Aggipah River Trips” as a company name, as it is emblematic of the central Idaho back-country.

Aggipah River Trips is a small, local, family-operated whitewater rafting guide service. We’ve been in business since 1977. We outfit multi-day whitewater trips on all three wilderness sections of the Salmon River. We provide trips only on the Salmon River-yet by offering trips on various sections of the Salmon and different times of the year, we have a variety of trips available. We think it is better to stay on one river, and know it best, than to spread out over a number of rivers in different areas. We feel it is important that the outfitter is on the river throughout the season leading trips, rather than being home in the office. River trips are pretty special to us, too.

Whitewater rafting began as recreation and a summer job during college, but became the central portion of our lives- a way of life as much as a living. After several seasons working for other river outfitters on various western rivers, we chose the Salmon River to begin our own river outfitting business in 1977. Large volume tour operators, we are not.
