Whitewater Rafting in Glacier National Park

Whitewater raft trips on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River are available in half, full, or multi-day trips offer participants the chance for a taste of adrenaline while enjoying jaw-dropping scenery. Both whitewater and scenic float trips are offered. All trips originate and end in West Glacier.

If booking a whitewater trip, you will start amidst the beautiful vistas of Nyack Flats before flowing into the white-knuckle water of John Stevens Canyon showcasing class II-III rapids with names like “Bonecrusher” and “Jaws.” 

If a pleasure cruise on calm water is what you’re looking for, the scenic tour is a half day trip down a different stretch of river. The guide will share interpretive information and history along the way. This trip is well-known for spotting wildlife.

Depending on the length of trip, lunch and/or dinner is provided.
