Glacier Park Collection

Half-Day Whitewater Rafting

Our most popular rafting trip is accessible for all abilities and great for families who want to introduce their little adventurers to some river-top excitement!

Your two-to-three-hour journey on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River begins with a mellow float to take in the history and views of this incredible area. Then, enter a beautiful canyon with small rapids and deep clear water pools as the excitement begins to rise. Keep an eye out for wildlife and westslope cutthroat trout swimming by as you and your guide navigate the rapids.

This trip is chock-full of good times. On warm days, many rafters also take the opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the river along the way.
