Explore Our Overnight Rafting Glacier National Park Adventures

Since 1987, Glacier Guides and Montana Raft has guided whitewater rafting and scenic float trips on the Flathead River, bordering Glacier National Park. The North and Middle Forks of the Flathead form Glacier’s stunning southwestern border. Overnight rafting Glacier National Park adventures afford a unique opportunity to nearly everyone — ages three and up! — to gaze at the beauty of Glacier National Park, and sleep under it’s dark, star studded skies, without having to hike or carry a pack. From young families to retirees, and everyone in between, multi-day raft trips mean FUN!

Extended trips all end in the West Glacier area with the longest trips starting farthest upriver. An average day’s float is 15 miles of spectacular scenery, with most of the whitewater — if any — coming in the last day. These trips use the North Fork of the Flathead River during late summer, and the Middle Fork in early and mid summer.

As a member of Rafting America, we are committed to providing the best white water rafting trips in the Americas, and particularly in Glacier National Park. Mountain Photography takes photos of all whitewater trips (mid-June through Labor Day) and they are sold separately in our main office. Wetsuits, river shoes, and river magic are always free!

“Katie was perfect for our group! My parents were quite nervous and she was very nurturing which eased their fears. i think they also appreciated the safety education and the description of what was coming up on our trip down. Thanks for the fun experience!”

“Greetings! Just wanted to comment on a GREAT rafting experience we had with your company this week. From the first call I made to you until we finished back at your office, I want to say EVERYONE there was just GREAT! Very Friendly, efficient, and confident that a land-lover from ND could make the trip! I expecially want to thank DEAN for his patient instruction, his wealth of information about the river and the park, and his FUN attitude! What a nice guy! Thanks again for a great time and I will most certainly recommend your company to anyone that might be going to Glacier!”
Barb and Tom P., Half Day Whitewater
“Made me want to choose Glacier Guides because staff was generous with their time. What to wear? What to bring? What to expect? All of these were answered fully and (we discoverd) honestly. Even after all the changes I made, I still felt wanted.
I know it was not in your control, but weather was perfect. Our guide, Amy, was friendly yet professional – we felt at ease and safe in her hands. Glacier Guides are happy, friendly people who love what they do always make a great experience for customers…move to Chicago, so that we can enjoy your service more often!!”

“Teal was our guide. She did a fabulous job! Our family had a great time. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Glacier Nat’l Park. Thanks!”
Timothy M, Half Day Whitewater
“Emily was amazing. She was fun and personable and very knowledgeable on the area, not just the water! I have rafted with another group and would definitely recommend you over them. You made it a fun and memorable experience!”
Miranda B., Half Day Whitewater

My husband and I just finished a 6 day backpacking trip followed by overnight raft. It was an awesome trip in the Belly river area with Tom as our guide. He cheered us on, cooked fabulous meals and kept us in awe over spectacular scenes.  Lauren and Darby made us feel pampered after our long hike and tired legs. Sleeping under the stars beside the Flathead River was amazing. Teal at the Glacier Guides Lodge was outstanding. The Lodge was wonderful. Comfy beds and yummy breakfasts was the cure for our active but exhausting trips. We are over the top happy with our adventure. Already planning the next trip. -Tracy L.
