Half Day Glacier National Park White Water Rafting Trip: The Classic Experience

Glacier National Park white water rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River with Glacier Guides and Montana Raft.

Really great rafting guides/company. We rafted this morning and the trip was great. Good aqua colored big water. We did the half day trip with Jared. He was really good; he gave us just enough info on safety and the surrounding countryside. I highly recommend the half day trip; its enough without breaking the bank, especially with teens. More enthusiasts should consider the full day trip. -Robert W.

The water was high, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Lauren was a great guide, telling us about the area and keeping everyone engaged. -Kevin L.

I waited a long time to have this experience and it was well worth it. It was a day I’ll never forget. -Mary
