Three Rivers Selway Wilderness


Selway Wilderness

5 Days - Class IV - June & July
Water Level - Selway gauge at Lowell

The Selway River is located in the Bitterroot and Nez Perce National Forests, close to the Montana border. It flows through the 1.2 million acre Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area, and is designated a "Wild River" in both the Wilderness Preservation and Wild & Scenic Rivers systems. The natural beauty of this canyon combined with the challenge of the rapids and the outstanding opportunity for solitude make the Selway one of the highest quality whitewater boating rivers in the nation. Three Rivers Rafting is proud to offer the magic of the Selway to the outfitted public.

The upper part of the Selway from its confluence with White Cap Creek to just above Selway Falls is a technical, class IV run that twists and turns for 47 miles. It flows north until Moose Creek nearly doubles the volume of the river and turns its direction west. In the spring, flows on the Selway increase to create famous rapids like Goat Creek, Ham, Double Drop, Ladle, and Wolf Creek. Anglers can fish for native Westslope Cutthroat Trout from the river’s crystal clear waters. Abundant wildlife exists in this 2,000 square mile roadless area. Encounters with other people are rare because only one group per day is allowed to launch on the river. We can outfit you with any camping gear and river wear you need, and, of course, we supply all the delicious meals.

An upper Selway river trip is a true expedition. Many natural treasures and memories can be discovered in this pristine wilderness. We have a limited number of guests that we can accommodate, so please book early. Our trips begin and end in Missoula, Montana.
