Celebrating all things Yellowstone, the Flying Pig Adventure Company makes...

Celebrating all things Yellowstone, the Flying Pig Adventure Company makes planning a vacation to Yellowstone easy. One call and you can set up anything from a quick float down the river to a complete vacation that includes lodging and an awesome activity package. Our activities include White water or Scenic Rafting, Horseback Rides, Fly Fishing, Park Tours and even shopping at our Camp Store. Above all else, we are best known for our friendly staff and excellent customer service. We love sharing the adventures of the Yellowstone area with our guests...And it shows!

Many years ago, the Flying Pig got its start with whitewater rafting, and that is still the premier event today. Thousands of people have enjoyed our 8 Mile, 18 Mile and Overnight Rafting Trips on the Yellowstone River. We have awesome guides and our own private river access. In addition to whitewater trips, we also offer scenic floats for those who want to sit back, relax and soak in the views. Looking for a true Montana experience at a horse ranch? The Flying Pig offers horseback rides at a beautiful privately-owned alpine ranch just a few miles above town. The fun continues inside Yellowstone Park with Park Tours and Fly Fishing. In fact, we can take you fishing in some of the best trout rivers and streams in North America.

We have also expanded to a second store location at 204 Park Street in Gardiner, where we offer a full complement of camping, hiking, fishing and apparel. Looking to experience Yellowstone first hand? Want to try something new? Give us a call and we will work with you to find just the right adventure. We encourage everyone to get out there and challenge themselves by doing something they never thought they'd do....To let their Pigs Fly!

We used Flying Pig for the paddle and saddle, but the rivers were closed to activity so we only did the saddle, which was reviewed separately. We also got a naturalist for the day and it was an amazing experience. We weren't sure what to expect and were afraid he would show us or teach us anything particularly new. But... More

We took there Paddle and Saddle package and it was a high light of our family trip in Yellowstone. But it would be better if we prepared some food for this back to back adventure. Both the horseback ride and white water rafting are fun and give you special view of this famous park.

My husband and I went on the half day walk and wade with Buddy this past July. It was a great time. He picked us up at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and we drove 5 minutes down the road to the river. We both caught trout and practiced a lot of casting. The shop is close if you are staying... More

My husband and I had originally booked the Saddle/Paddle experience. The river was closed down due to health issues for the fish in the area. We decided to do the all day tour of Yellowstone. Our guide was Josiah, and he was amazing! We met at 8 a.m. for a full day of exploring. Josiah was very knowledgeable and ask... More

My wife and I booked a guided fly-fishing trip with The Flying Pig about 6 weeks before our September trip to Yellowstone N.P. One of the first noticeable attributes of our experience was the communication from the pig. A confirmation email, and a phone call from one of the guides quickly followed my booking. In the days leading up to... More

We booked a one hour horseback ride for the entire family and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. The ranch is beautiful and it is located high in the mountains next to Gallatin National Forest. Our guide, Amy, was great with the kids and answered all of our questions throughout the ride. We would highly recommend this experience.

Visited yellowstone in early August 2016. I had heard that the Yellowstone River was low and that fishing not great in early August. But if you get the Flying Pig fishing guides YOU WILL CATCH FISH!

I booked a last minute, 1 hour horseback ride through Flying Pig while my travel companion booked a float/rapids trip. I can't speak to the rafting trip other than I was told I should have gone.
