What river rafters are saying
“Thank you once again for the wonderful rafting and fishing trip on the magical Selway. We know this river is very special to you and the gift of sharing it with us will be a memory we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
SOAR’s organization, attention to safety, respect for the river, professional guiding, getting us into fish, food to die for and companionship was unparalleled. We have been fortunate over the years to make trips with guides on other rivers both to raft and to fish. Without a doubt you have dialed in the needs of the client on both levels and the entire trip far exceeded our expectations.”
-Matt & Eleanor Andersen, Spokane, Washington
“Thank you SOAR Northwest River Company for a very wonderful and pristine wilderness experience on the Selway River. Catching native cutthroat trout out of emerald colored pools exceeded my expectations. Spectacular scenery, and wildlife, including several bear sightings made me realize what unique place the Selway is. The guides were professional and friendly and the meals spot on. I will be back again to experience this most special of places. You created memories I will cherish forever. Thanks for making it possible to experience one of the last few wild and unspoiled places left.”
-Sam Lemaich, Missoula, Mt.
“We have been private whitewater boaters for over 35 years. After almost two decades of trying to secure a permit for the Selway River, we decided to book a private trip with SOAR, and could not have been more delighted. The river was dazzling, the guides supremely skilled and friendly, and we loved the relaxation. Thanks, Ari and crew!”

“I am just really happy that I chose to have this experience on the Selway with SOAR NW. Its difficult to reduce the trip to words. The country and the river really are magnificent. Ari and his staff are a wonderful combination of experience, technical skills, competence and hospitality. I felt welcome and safe and entirely provided for. The meals were exquisite , ample and timely. The rafts and river equipment are top notch. Every aspect of the trip was wonderful. The high points for me were getting in the raft with my buddy each morning….knowing that we had miles of fishing in front of us…. dry flies and Cutthroats….crystal clear water…..no fences, no land owner signs, no fishermen in the next hole….knowing that I probably should be taking photos of all of the incredible things we are seeing … but choosing instead to watch trout come up for grasshoppers.”
