Had a great time rafting on the middle fork river. Nice rapids class ii-iii. Guides were friendly, helpful, and good at their job. Rapids big enough for excitement but never that scary. Highly recommend it!

Our guide, James, was so professional and patient. We felt completely safe at all times but had plenty of really strong rapids to contend with because of the spring meltoff. All guides were really enthusiastic. My husband and I were sorry when it was over....More

I am an experienced whitewater kayaker and was very impressed with the river knowledge and experience of our guide. Earlier season there was probably a little more flow and therefore higher grade rapids however the number of rapids and the way Nate had us paddle...More

My brother got married and Glacier Raft Company handled the logistics flawlessly. We stayed onsite, had the rehearsal dinner/ float trip and wedding at at the property. They managed to keep everything in line for 50 people. Would highly recommend using them!

So...we are on our way in just a couple of weeks. We will be there from 6/14-6/16. How cold is the water then? Will there be wet suits? We are not sure whether we should do the scenic calm one or the sporty fun one. How prevalent is the wildlife on the scenic one at this time of year? Can you see any wildlife on the one with rapids? And how rapid-y is the rapids at this time of year? We are in reasonably good shape--but I feel stuck about which one to do. Suggestions would help. Thank you!
