Rafting Glacier National Park: Full Day Itinerary
Spend a full day exploring Glacier National Park’s Wild and Scenic border river, the Middle Fork Flathead, with our highly trained, friendly, and entertaining, interpretive river guides. They love what they do and you’ll love tackling the river’s iconic whitewater section — 9 named rapids — with them.
In the morning, float a remote, relaxing stretch of river. Then, around noon, your guide selects a secluded spot for a delicious, buffet style lunch. We’re known for our amazing riverside lunches. Our kitchen sources locally and organically whenever possible, and you’ll taste the difference.
After lunch, explore the whitewater of the John F. Stevens Canyon. These nine named rapids are typically rated class II and III. This is a fun and splashy adventure through pristine, glacially fed waters! Finally, float beneath Glacier’s historic Old Belton Bridge. Your adventure ends in West Glacier with a 5 minute bus ride back to our campus.
