How long can smoked salmon safely be stored in its original pkg?

I have had packages of smoked salmon in their original packages for some time (many years). Since there is no "expiration date" anywhere to be found on the foil or the wood box in which they arrived, I have always thought they were good "forever." Since I don't know that to be true, I haven't opened them. Are they safe to open and eat?
