Salmon, Idaho is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Missoula, Montana, so when you come to the northern part of the US, you can't miss Salmon. It is a gateway to the spectacular mountains and lakes close by and right on the Lewis and Clark Trail.
Many activities are available for the outdoor enthusiast. Explore the "River of No Return," which is what the Salmon River is called. You can go by raft or kayak, guided or on your own. Fish the waters for steelhead or rainbow trout. Take a horse-packing tour into the backcountry. Take photos of the incredible wildlife, like moose, red fox, black bear or elk. Hike or mountain bike on rugged mountain trails. Visit all four hot springs in the area.
You can stay at any one of a number of Bed & Breakfasts in Salmon, or at any of the motels, hotels, ranches or lodges in and around the city. Camping and RV parks are also in abundance.
From Missoula, Montana, you can get to Salmon by taking US-12 to US-93. It is a short drive, and well worth the time it takes to get there – only a little over two hours.
