Glacier National Park Scenic Float

We have a 3 yr old and 5 yr old. We wanted the river experience so we were advised to take the Scenic trip. It was so nice. Cam was knowledgeable about the river, trees, and wildlife. He did all the hard work by being the one to steer the raft while we enjoyed the scenery. He was patient and answered the zillion questions our 5 year old had for him. We were the only ones on the boat. I was glad that the company continued the tour and didn’t cancel it due to it just being us 4. We’ve had other companies do that before. We had a great time and will return when the river is calmer and we can do the whitewater rafting. –TripAdvisor Review

This is a relaxing trip for nearly all ages and abilities.
