things to do in the water
With calm paths, deep runs and a healthy dose of raging rapids, Western Montana is ideal for a scenic float or a wild whitewater adventure. The Middle Fork of the Flathead River near Glacier National Park and the Alberton Gorge outside of Missoula are both prime whitewater destinations, and there are plenty of flat-water stretches to float, fish and soak up the scenery.
Outfitters throughout the region rent rafts for self-guided trips. But, if you're looking for an adventure with a seasoned guide (something we highly recommend) try one of the rafting companies below.
Let experienced guides show you the park's pristine rivers and scenic trails. Regularly scheduled and custom rafting, hiking and fishing trips available, plus biking tours on the jaw-dropping Going-to-the-Sun Road.
Montana river conditions can be dangerous. Be sure to use proper caution, wear a personal flotation device (PFD) and dress appropriately when hitting the river. Know your limitations, respect the water and exercise proper caution by avoiding rivers when they are running high or during cold weather. Also, be sure to respect property rights and stream access laws. Visit Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks for the latest information on stream access.
