Plan your Whitewater Vacation!

Because there is nothing like being on the river!

Gallatin River
The Gallatin River is one of the best whitewater runs in the Yellowstone-Teton Area. In June, when the snowmelt is released from the mountains, the river has a class IV section called the "Mad Mile." This section is over a mile long and contains continuous stretches of challenging whitewater. There are 2 sections of river available to raft - one more challenging, one less challenging. The Gallatin River is an amazingly scenic river - winding through high alpine meadows, dropping into the rocky Gallatin Canyon, and flowing out into the Gallatin Valley. It is an exceptionally popular fly fishing destination for rainbow trout, brown trout and mountain whitefish.
Yellowstone River
The Yellowstone is a big volume river, one of the last large free flowing rivers in the Western US. Trips start at the border of Yellowstone Park, since there is no river boating allowed inside the park. Most of the Class II and III rapids are before and in the beautiful Yankee Jim Canyon, with mostly flat water afterwards. The Yellowstone River is a world class, blue ribbon trout stream, providing some of the best fishing in North America.
Madison River
The Bear Trap Canyon of the Madison River is a one day trip through a stunning wilderness canyon. There are a few class 3 rapids and one long class 4 rapid on this 10 mile float. There are relaxing flatwater sections in between rapids, giving floaters a chance to take in the towering cliffs and the abundant wildlife viewing opportunities. It is common to see eagles, mountain sheep and mountain goats, even bears.
Black Foot River

A good float from spring to middle of July, the Blackfoot has class 2 whitewater that is playful and gentle. It is a beautiful glacial stream, made famous in Norman McLeans "A River Runs Through It". Rocky cliffs and giant boulders mix with thick forested mountain scenery providing a scenic gem that is a favorite of Missoula locals. Day trips are offered on this river. Well preserved bio-diversity makes the Blackfoot a great river for wildlife viewing.
Clark Fork River

The Clark Fork is a river in the U.S. states of Montana and Idaho, approximately 310 miles (500 km) long. The largest river by volume in Montana, it drains an extensive region of the Rocky Mountains in western Montana and northern Idaho in the watershed of the Columbia River, flowing northwest through a long mountain valley and emptying into Lake Pend Oreille in northern Idaho. The Pend Oreille River, which drains the lake to the Columbia, is sometimes included as part of the Clark Fork, giving it a total length of 479 mi (771 km), with a drainage area of 25,820 sq mi (66,870 km²). In its upper 20 mi (32 km) in Montana near Butte, it is known as Silver Bow Creek. Interstate 90 follows much of the upper course of the river from Butte to northwest of Missoula.

Alberton Gorge - Clark Fork River

This large volume river runs through a scenic canyon, not far from Missoula, MT. With 5 major rapids - class 2-3, the Alberton Gorge river trip is a popular boating destination and a fun day trip of 16 miles. In early season (May-June), depending on snowmelt and weather, the river is high and the wave rapids get very large. As the water level drops throughout the season, the rapids become less challenging and offer many options for whitewater fun. This trip is appropriate for kids and seniors, depending on the water levels.
