Rapids and rivers are subjectively rated Class I through Class V for commercial rafting. Ratings depend on the volume of water, elevation drop in the river, type of watercraft, ease of rescue and recovery and a paddler's experience.
Absolutely! You can purchase a gift certificate for any amount (Remember Great Northern Resort also offers lodging). They make great birthday, anniversary, graduation, and wedding gifts.
We want you to have a great time while rafting with Great Northern Resort and be comfortable as you join us on the river. "What to wear” is a frequently asked question and will depend upon river and weather conditions. The weather during the summer can vary from the 30's (usually in the evening) to the 100's. One saying around here, "If you don't like the weather wait a few minutes and it just might change." We suggest that you bring a fleece jacket or a warm wool sweater just in case it gets cold. We can provide you with rain suits or splash and fleece jackets for those chilly or wet days. For a minimal fee we also rent wetsuits and booties.
All river trips depart from our Great Northern Resort office. We are located 1 mile SW of the west gate of Glacier National Park on US Highway 2. Look for the Red Caboose!
We supply Type V Approved lifejackets, complete rain suits for adults and children, professional guides on every trip, delicious meals on specified trips and round-trip transportation from our parking area.
People always ask, "Will I get wet?" If you are going on a whitewater trip the answer is absolutely YES! Our rafts are self-baling boats - this means that no matter what kind of trip you are on your feet will get wet. If you don't have water shoes, sandals or shoes that you don’t mind getting wet - you can rent our wetsuits booties for $2.50 for half day or $5.00 for the full day.
