Our experienced river guides are available to take you on an unforgettable adventure. Enjoy the rugged scenery while floating the glacial-fed Flathead River in the Flathead National Forest area, which defines the southern boundary of Glacier National Park. Let our professional river guides navigate you down eight miles of Class II-IV rapids on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, entertain you on a scenic float, instruct you in proper technique at kayak school or advise you on the right fly to hook a world-class Cutthroat Trout in the crystal clear waters.
We also offer industry-leading river education and safety classes through our Glacier River School. From kids’ awareness programs to swiftwater rescue certifications for the professional rescuer or boater, the river school and its RQ3 and ACA instructors will make sure you have the skills you need to have fun and be safe on the river.
