Full description
Begin your whitewater rafting trip by meeting in West Glacier. Enjoy a 20-minute bus ride, then spend the next 5 to 6 hours floating down the Middle Fork of the Flathead. The first half of the day is on a calmer section of the river with beautiful views into Glacier National Park. Your friendly river guide will share lots of good information on the flora and the fauna as you go.  Midway through the journey, stop along the riverbank to enjoy a barbeque lunch of steak, chicken, or veggie burger cooked to order. Enjoy fresh salads and sides to go with your lunch.  After, get ready to tackle the whitewater of John Stevens Canyon. During the whitewater stretch, class II-III rapids such as Tunnel, Bone Crusher, and Jaws will quench your thirst for adventure and leave you full of memories that will last a lifetime.

We completed the full day rafting trip. Our guide was named Kirby. She was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about the river, the terrain, the seasons, and pretty much an answer for any question that we ask. There was a bit of a snafu with propane, so we didn’t actually get the sandwiches for our lunch. However, this rafting Company has the same caliber of service that Nordstrom used to have. They more than made up for the fact that we did not get our sandwiches as planned. We were given our rafting pictures for free As well as a couple of other perks. I highly recommend this rafting company. If we are ever back in the area, and we decide to take another rafting trip, it will definitely be with this company.

Our guide Zack was full of information about the River and surroundings. It was very pleasurable to have him as a guide. This was our first white water rafting trip and it was great.
