The Family Magic Trip down the lower Salmon River in August was AMAZING! The guides were awesome! So knowledgeable, funny, and resourceful. The food was better than most restaurants and my kids loved it (as did I)! The River Jester (Lily) was such a sweet yet stern and fun lady that kept the kids entertained and they loved her. They setup camp for us each day at these amazing beaches! I have never been rafting, and they were there to make it seem easy and doable! I loved that they taught us about the local history and environments. A stop at Spalding was awesome start to the trip! I enjoyed the paddle boats, inflatable kayaks, and the oar boats. I even became part of the swim team but it was a good experience having the guides there to ensure our safety. I loved cliff jumping, the short hikes, swimming the rapids, and swimming in the river with the kids. The time with friends and family was great. It was so relaxing and good to meet so many different people I feel that I can call my friends now. Best part was sleeping under the stars with my family hearing the rushing river next to us. The guides made the trip so personal and they were caring! Thanks so much Mark, Max, Connie, Jonas, Curtis, Lily, and Bethany! Absolutely recommend going on a trip with ROW and I plan to with my children again, it was worth every penny! Thanks Jason for helping plan the trip for me!

ROW Adventures is a great way to get off the beaten path and experience our wonderful wilderness with a set of wonderful guides. I am not sure which was the best part of our 6 day trip on The River of No Return; the guides, the food, meeting new people, the river... But all seemed to fall into a wonderful rhythm that perfectly complimented each other. My family was very concerned that we even signed up for this type of vacation. It is one thing to go floating in the wild in your young, but quite different when you are many years down the road and suffer from chronic pain. For some reason, the cooler water if the river, time to give back to ur soul, the daily stops to visit the hot springs, the wonderful healthy great tasting food, and encouragement of our guides all seemed to bring back the youth of our younger days gone by. We smiled, giggled, shared great drink and laughed at the joke after joke. But most of all, it was the guides that made our trip as each day unfolded. Each guide brought back the youth of our soul through the morning stretches, the stories of past explorers, and the shared fishing tackle! Now my next wish is to embark on a new ROW adventure with my son so we can share a new chapter of complete happiness in our beautiful wilderness...Maybe Hells Canyon or their adventure that offers trail riding and fast river rafting! Either way, it is something for everyone no matter what your age!

Had a blast last year on Snake River. Very professional and fun guides. The canyon was on fire and they just took this in stride and adjusted.See you July 30 for Middle Fork of Salmon.

Itinerary

Day 1: Ushuaia

Accommodation : Ushuaia Hotel

Your expedition begins in the southernmost town in the world, Ushuaia, with a night at the beautiful Arakur Hotel & Resort. Take the time to explore its walking trails and indulge in a spa treatment or head into Ushuaia to browse its Argentinean leather markets and award-winning museum. Ushuaia is also on the doorstep of Tierra del Fuego National Park which can be accessed along the famous “Train at the End of the World”.

In the evening there will be an optional briefing where you can meet some of your Expedition Team and fellow travelers.

Day 2: Embarkation

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Accommodation : MS Hebridean Sky or MS Island Sky

Spend the morning exploring Ushuaia before being transferred to the ship in the mid-afternoon. On board you will meet your Expedition Team and the ship’s Officers, then relax on deck as we sail through the Beagle Channel, passing colonies of Magellanic penguins, rock cormorants and sea lions.

Day 3 – 4: Drake Passage

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Accommodation : MS Hebridean Sky or MS Island Sky

The next couple of days will be sent sailing across the Drake Passage, keeping an eye out for albatross, prions and petrels which may follow the ship, together with whales and dolphins. A series of informative lectures will be presented by your polar experts on the wildlife, history and geology of the Antarctic Peninsula.

After crossing the Antarctic Convergence, you’ll notice a distinct drop in temperature, with the opportunity to help collect weather data and salinity samples along the way.

Day 5 – 6: South Shetland Islands

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Accommodation : MS Hebridean Sky or MS Island Sky

Immerse yourself in the spectacular landscapes of Antarctica over the next five days, exploring the scenic bays and channels of the Peninsula. Our first land sighting is likely to be South Shetland Islands. This volcanic expanse offers an amazing sensory overload of abundance and beauty. We may visit Half Moon Island in Livingston’s eastern shore, or conditions permitting visit historic Deception Island. We are still quite for notrh so this gives us a chance to see sub-Antarctic species that are more commonly found here, including Chinstrap penguins and Southern Elephant seals.

The 11 Day Tour only spends 1 day here.

Day 7 – 9: Antarctica

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Accommodation : MS Hebridean Sky or MS Island Sky

Today we take a southerly direction and head across the Bransfield Strait on route to Trinity Coast and Gerlache Strait. Destinations may include picturesque Neko Harbor, Paradise Harbor, Wilhelmina Bay and the striking Lemaire Channel, together with the magnificent Neumayer Channel and the wildlife-filled waters of the Penola Channel. We’ll launch the zodiacs to visit penguin rookeries, seal wallows and bird colonies, as well as working scientific bases such as Poland’s Arctowksi or the U.K.’s Port Lockroy. The itinerary will be largely determined by weather, ice and wildlife opportunities, with the chance to see Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins together as well as Weddell, Crabeater and Elephant seals.

The 15 Day Itinerary spend 4 days in the Antarctic Sound and on the Antarctic Peninsula

Day 10 – 11: Drake Passage

We’ll depart the Antarctic Peninsula on our return trip across the Drake Passage, continuing our presentation series and wildlife spotting. Then cruise back through the Beagle Channel as we celebrate this incredible expedition, reliving the highlights during a slideshow presentation.

Day 12: Ushuaia

Disembark and make your way to the airport or continue your journey through Argentina.
