The ultimate green vacation


Responsible River Travel

On the river, Far and Away is distinct with the organic and sustainable foods offered in its cuisine. Foods are natural, fresh and local when possible.
Consideration to sustainability is evident with Idaho’s Snake River Farms Kobe Wagyu Beef, Kurobuta Pork and local lamb. For seafood served, Monterey Bay Aquarium Foundation Seafood Watch Program is how we partner a role in protecting the health of the oceans. These are a just a few of the products you’ll enjoy on our path to support local farmers and sustainable agriculture.
Inherent to wilderness adventure, the activity itself is carbon neutral. Through Sustainable Travel International https://sustainabletravelinternational.org Far and Away includes a carbon offset payment on the customers behalf, estimated by the distance traveled from Sun Valley to and from the river. Far and Away chooses to have its river operations within a 200-mile radius of its base camp in Sun Valley, Idaho, creating a footprint that is relatively small within the industry.
We encourage you to look over the Carbon Calculator at
https://sustainabletravelinternational.org/documents/op_carboncalcs.html
should you wish to do the same!
From a volun-tourism component, we engage our guests in an invasive weed recognition and eradication program. It’s an opportunity to assist the Forest Service in eliminating insidious plants that have no natural predator and will proliferate if not addressed.

Far and Away Adventures Schedules August and September
Middle Fork of the Salmon Whitewater Wellness Weeks


Whitewater Wellness / Far And Away Adventures
SUN VALLEY, ID, Feb. 2, 2012 – Known for blending river rafting with
wilderness adventure and backcountry luxury, Far and Away Adventures (http:/
/www.far-away.com/) delivers “authentic American safaris” that in 2012 include
two six-day/five-night Middle Fork of the Salmon Whitewater Wellness Weeks.
Trip dates are Aug. 27-Sept. 1 and Sept. 6-11. The per person rate is from
$2,750.

In an adults-only atmosphere, private wellness and fitness counseling and
activities will be led by Margie Caldwell Cooper, a fitness educator, relaxation
trainer and former competitive swimmer from Santa Barbara, CA, who was
designated Aquatic Exercise Association Global Fitness Professional of the Year
in 2006.

In a pristine riverside setting, Caldwell will introduce new and advanced
stretching techniques and lead daily warm-up and yoga sessions before each
active day on the river. Morning guided hikes along the banks or up a canyon
to enjoy scenery and view petroglyphs increase participant’s endurance and
cardiovascular fitness. Personalized stretch sessions and kinesthetic awareness
activities drawn up by Caldwell after individual assessments will give each guest
a specific individualized program for improved posture and increased flexibility
and range of motion. Massage and bodywork sessions in the ambience of the
quiet river evenings will loosen joints and lengthen muscles, improving posture
and balance.

The comprehensive program in concert with a world-class river expedition
includes aerobic interval workouts, fly-fishing, soaking in hot springs, wildlife
observation and nature walks, inflatable kayaking, and development of long
term personal fitness agendas. Exercise mats are provided. Additional massage
treatments (one is complimentary) are $50 per half hour and $90 per hour.

Caldwell, a self-proclaimed river rat herself, holds numerous certifications from
the Yoga Alliance and teaches Yoga and Pilates. She also freelances at the
Rancho La Puerta health spa in Baja, Mexico on a regular basis and offers
continuing education to instructors around the country focusing on bringing core
training and functional fitness into every workout.

As guests work out with Caldwell and play on the river, adventure guides set up
and break down five-star camps along the river. They prepare and serve organic
meals on pre-heated stoneware atop linen-draped tables lit by candlelight while
pouring into crystal stemware wines selected from organic and small-batch
wineries. The guides also arrange solar-generated hot water for showers, and

state-of-art tents with elevated beds, flannel bedding, carpets and nightstands.

Along with a “leave no trace” ethic, Far and Away Adventures offers
interpretation of the rich Native American history and heritage in the Salmon
River Basin. Numerous artifacts are evidence that humans have long been a
component of the wilderness. Remnants of the Shoshone and Nez Perce Indian
occupations, journals of early fur trappers and missionaries, and artifacts from
early miner and homestead settlements all constitute the rich human fabric of
the region. A safari-style journal and guidebook goes to each guest encouraging
them to track, among others, Rocky Mountain elk sightings, native wildflowers
and birds.

Far and Away Adventures has been sharing the excitement of paddling with
adventuresome guests since 1980. Simply, the wonders of nature and those
created by Far and Away Adventures for guests plying these and other privileged
waters create a new category for those who seek experiences above and beyond
the ordinary. Far and Away Adventures’ guests are moved beyond world-class
into a universe where luxury and wilderness blend marvelously together. For a
detailed itinerary on this and other programs on equally privileged waters, please
