Half Day Whitewater Rafting Trip
From US$ 63.13
Overview
Take to the water for an adrenaline-fuelled white-water rafting excursion in the Glacier National Park. Paddle along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, enjoy a thrilling 8-mile (13-kilometer) route including Class II and II rapids, and admire stunning views of the John Stevens Canyon and the surrounding Glacier National Park.
What to Expect
Our half day whitewater trip departs from our office with a 10 minute shuttle to our river access point, Moccasin Creek. From there, your guide will provide basic paddling and safety instruction while floating down a scenic tributary to the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. After floating 4 miles of beautiful scenic water along Glacier National Park and seeing breathtaking views, you'll enter John Stevens Canyon and tackle 9 named class 2 and 3 family fun rapids including Bone Crusher. Along the way, your guide will tell you stories of Glacier National Park and the surrounding area. The trip will last between 2.5 and 3.5 hours depending on when you raft during the summer. The trip ends as you raft back into the Village of West Glacier and a short walk back to the office.  
Glacier Raft Company is located in the Village of West Glacier, outside the West Entrance of Glacier National Park. We ask that you check in 30 minutes prior to your departure time and wear clothing that you don't mind getting wet. In May and June, we will provide wetsuits, water shoes and splash gear for the trip. It July and August, wetsuits will not be necessary. We require shoes that stay securely on your feet such as water shoes, tennis shoes, sneakers or sandals with a back strap but have rental options if you don't have any.
