When To Travel:
Plan to arrive in Salmon the day before your trip start date. If you fly into Boise, schedule your flight to arrive by 1:30 PM to catch the 2 PM air shuttle to Salmon or by 5:00 PM to catch the 5:30 PM air shuttle to Salmon. Flyers will leave McCall the day your trip ends and should plan to spend the night in Boise. You can schedule your departure flight the
first thing the following morning. If you drive you may wish to spend the night in McCall.
How to Get There:
If You Fly
The closest commercial airport is Boise, ID. United, Delta, Alaska, Horizon and Southwest service Boise. Please plan your flight into Boise so that it arrives by 5 PM the day before your river trip. If you arrange the air shuttle to Salmon with us, collect your baggage and proceed to the Empire Air/Salmon Air desk. This is an easy walk in the direction of gates 1-5 at the west end of the airport. Flights to Salmon are scheduled to leave at 2 PM and 5:30 PM. Look for a Salmon Air pilot at the Empire Air/Salmon Air meeting area, or if you don't find one call Salmon Air at (800) 448-3413.
If You Drive
Take Route 75 north from Twin Falls 249 miles. This will take you near Sun Valley. An alternate route is Hwy. 21 from Boise to route 75. Each drive takes about 6 hours. The Stagecoach Inn is located on the north end of town on Route 75. Plan to arrive in Salmon for the 8:00 PM orientation meeting the evening before your trip. ECHO can arrange to have your car shuttled to McCall (see above). The cost of the gas is not included in the shuttle fee so you should have a full tank of gas and enough cash or a credit card to cover the cost of the 252 mile shuttle to the town of McCall.
