“It is “a hedonistic” expedition whose participants are cosseted for six days with dinner wines, first-class meals, and attentive staff members who will do almost anything for you short of tucking you in your sleeping bag.” – Travel and Leisure Magazine


Slide In mid-September of 2012, I had one of the greatest weeks on a river in my entire life, thanks to Steve Lentz and Far and Away Adventures. And that’s saying a lot, because I’ve been fortunate enough to spend a lot of weeks on a lot of rivers. The fishing, the food, the hot springs, the guides, the river-running—all of it was just incredible and beyond my already high expectations. The Middle Fork of the Far & Away Adventures exceeded our high expectations. This is our fourth trip with the company and each time we see that they have added little touches and upgrades to what we had already thought of as perfection. The entire crew is professional, knowledgeable of the local history, personable and caring. The level of service, quality of food and accommodations is exceptional. The crew works so hard to make sure that every guest is safe and enjoying themselves. Thank you to all for a fabulous family vacation!

Slide Excellent Company and even better experience made possible by their excellent staff. For example, gourmet meals with paired wines, camp was always set up upon our arrival after each day on the river, awakened each morning with a hot refreshing towel, cup of coffee, and an excellent breakfast to start the day. I had never fly fished, their staff was so patient with me and i managed to catch trout...awesome experience! Would highly recommend this company for your trip down the Middle Fork River.

Slide I went on a trip with Far and Away Adventures this summer and the whole experience was AMAZING! The guides were so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about everything involving the Middle Fork of the Salmon(the history, geology, and overall ecosystem). They answered any questions you could possibly have and created a fun and lively environment the entire trip! The packing list was thorough and the guides were prepared with anything and everything else you could possibly ever need on the trip. Overall this trip met every possible expectation and I wouldn’t hesitate spending another week on the river with this company/crew!!

Slide Our Middle Fork trip was truly amazing. The crew truly loves what they’re doing. There skills from reading and running the river to preparing gourmet meals are admirable. The guides were intimately familiar with their surroundings: geology and natural history and shared that knowledge every day. Fishing was great and we spent 5 days with close friends and left feeling like we were welcomed into the Far and Away family. One of the best trips ever.
