Far and Away Adventures, an outfitter that specializes in luxury wilderness vacations on Idaho's Middle Fork of the Salmon River, offers guests adrenaline-pumping whitewater rafting, luxurious accommodation, and a mouth-watering culinary experience.
After spending days exploring 100 rapids and 100 miles of the breathtaking Middle Fork, guests settle into encampments that rival a safari setting from a Hemingway novel, complete with gourmet fare. Travelers are treated to an extraordinary organic menu guided by local Chef Kenny Rudolph who has been recognized by the James Beard Foundation for his culinary skills, with fresh ingredients and creations such as stuffed morel mushrooms and braised free-range chicken with fennel purée and blackberry compote.
This gourmet experience includes multiple courses with items like wild salmon, Niman Ranch beef and pork, Fulton Valley Farms poultry, and local and natural lamb. Top the day off with a microbrew that’s on tap, carefully paired global wine selections, and sumptuous deserts. Menu additions for the children are pizza, pasta, fried rice, hamburgers, edamame, fresh fruit, and skewers. Guests dine by candlelight on linen tablecloths and fine china, and are invited to relax and savor their meals as a sommelier serves exquisite wines tableside
Within the encampment, guides set up the private, well-appointed chalets. Wall tents—big enough to stand in--- give visitors plenty of space and all of the comforts of home including rugs, elevated beds with a 3 inch foam mattress, a huge flannel bed with a full size pillow, and even a nightstand. Other luxuries include a tent side service with steaming hot hand tows and a morning cup of freshly-brewed Organic coffee or tea. With this level of service and luxury, visitors will never want to leave the wilderness again.
