Action-packed and ready to roll however you want to run, White Cloud Rafting Adventures rocks the waves on the Salmon River in the Sawtooth Wilderness right outside of Sun Valley in Stanley, Idaho. For a pure, elevated experience that’s a real laugh riot, nothing beats a day on the river with White Cloud. It’s the ultimate summer getaway. It’s literally a breath of fresh air with a splash of adventure. And it’s easy to get on board. With river trip options made for all ages and interests, White Cloud takes you there. No worries. Just fun for everyone. Running this stretch of the river since 1971 with a stellar safety (and smiles) record, our company’s knowledge of (and love for) this spectacular place goes deep and wide. Soak it all in.
Just north of Sun Valley, Stanley, Idaho (pop. 67) is a unique and spectacular place, framed by the jagged peaks of the Sawtooths. Offering Stanley/Sun Valley rafting trips for over 44 years, White Cloud operates with the longest continuous river running permit on this section of the Salmon. That means we know the river and the Sawtooths like the back of our hand (which we see a lot of, marawana rowing). That also means we grandfathered in an incredible private beach spot for lounging, dining, games and more.
White Cloud’s guide team is close-knit and driven by passion for this majestic place and the fantastic people who take our trips. We are local, so we hire locals who love the area and give back to it, like we do. We have more return guides than any other company. That’s saying something.
Fun, energetic, and nearly encyclopedic about the wonders of the area, our guides know that safety comes first. Our guide training program meets and exceeds state requirements, and every guide is licensed in whitewater rafting and certified in CPR/first aid.
At White Cloud, you can choose your own adventure. From scenic and all-ages fun runs to rapids and wild-style thrill rides, our high-level guides and gear take your vacation to great new heights.
