Glacier Rafting Adventures

We can’t wait to take you rafting down Glacier’s stunning border rivers! Be advised that rafting reservations do not include an entry reservation ticket for the Going-to-the-Sun Road, because you do not have to enter the park to access the river. This is true for all rafting reservations in our area.

Questions? First, please head over to the Plan Page of our website for information on ticketed entry into glacier, our area lodging recommendations, best day hikes for kids, month by month itineraries, current conditions in the park, and so much more!

Planning a Family Rafting Trip?

Since 1987, family friendly rafting trips in Glacier National Park are our specialty. Working in conjunction with the Forest Service, our trips are on the North and Middle Forks of the Flathead River, a Wild and Scenic River. These forks form Glacier’s southwestern borders, and offer intimate glimpses into the park’s interior from the comfort of the boat. Whether you’re looking for a little whitewater or a scenic float, we’d love to take you out! And if you’re up for a camping adventure, we highly recommend overnight rafting trips.

    We had such a great time! Our guide was Nicolette, and she was fantastic. She was so
    knowledgeable about the park, river, and everything Montana. We weren’t sure what to expect upon arrival, and ended up making the best memories of our trip. I very highly recommend this company & the relaxing raft tour. Make it a priority if you’re visiting Glacier! Will definitely be back!

    Great ride! The views were amazing. Connor was our guide and did a great job sharing his knowledge of the route. I actually jumped in the river, and it was quite refreshing! I highly recommend spending time exploring Glacier National Park with Glacier Guides and Montana Raft. They are very professional and make the ride more fun.

    If you’re looking to try white water rafting in glacier (which you should!) Glacier Guides is the place to go! My husband and I were on our honeymoon and this was our first rafting experience, and it could not have been better! James was prepared with experience, knowledge and jokes. We felt very safe with James in charge. He also offered numerous places and hikes in the park for all experience levels. Highly recommend!

    I highly recommend booking with Glacier Guides. We booked white water rafting for 3 guys and had a blast. We felt like the guides did a really great job of demonstrating their expertise on the water and sharing history about the local area. Joe in particular was a great dude. If you’re in town, these guys are the best!

    Holy cow this place is awesome! Right from the start, everyone was so nice and friendly and fun! Our family headed down the river for the scenic float with our three littles (9, 7 & 3) and my FIL and MIL (who cannot swim and is terrified of water!). We had the best time and our guide Nicolette was super knowledgeable about the river and the area. After the float we stayed for dinner and, let me just tell you, it blew my expectations out of the water! I was expecting to get our main course with a couple sides but they had that PLUS crazy yummy appetizers AND dessert too! I cannot recommend Montana Raft enough! If you have time, do the dinner option. You will not be disappointed!!
