Safety First

Safety is always our #1 priority. Guides train in river rescue techniques, first aid, and more. Many guides return year after year. If conditions call for wetsuits and river shoes, or if you would prefer to wear splash gear, it is always available at no extra cost. Minimum age for our Scenic Float Trip is 3 years old.

Please note that during spring runoff, i.e. in May and early-mid June, wetsuits may be required on scenic floats. It’s always a good idea to bring a bathing suit with you to wear under a wetsuit.

Additional Trip Details


What’s For Dinner?

Entrees include Montana 6 oz petite steak, 6 oz wild caught salmon filet, 8 oz chicken breast, or housemade vegetarian options like zucchini boats. Please be sure to let us know in advance which protein choice you prefer.

In addition to your choice of entree, you’ll enjoy appetizers like homemade cream cheese with crackers, chips and salsa, veggies with dips, and fresh fruits; fresh green salad; sides such as beet, tomato, potato, pasta, or quinoa salads; and mouthwatering desserts like cheesecake with a homemade berry sauce, decadent huge brownies, or freshly churned strawberry ice cream. Dinner does not include alcoholic beverages, but you’re welcome to bring your own. Lemonade and water are always available.

Let’s Go Rafting!

If you are not interested in exploring the whitewater section but would like to enjoy the river, this mellow Glacier Park dinner float is for you!

First, float the scenic section of the Middle Fork of the Flathead, from West Glacier to Blankenship Bridge. Next, pass through a steep, walled canyon. Finally, you’ll see where the Middle and North Forks of the Flathead come together to form the southern tip of Glacier National Park. This is a relaxing trip for almost all age groups, 3 years and up. The float time is approximately 2 hours long. After your Glacier Park dinner float trip, return to our campus. Then, it’s time for dinner!

  • Rafting Testimonial

    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!

  • Rafting Testimonial

    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!!

    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.
