Camping details for overnight & multi-day rafting trips

Day 1

Meet your group at the Great Northern Resort at 8:30. This is the time for check-in, rental of river gear, orientation, and any last minute packing. The morning float includes some great whitewater rapids ranging from Class II to Class III. Your guide will stop along the river to give you a chance to relax while we prepare a delicious lunch.

There is often time to take a short walk along the river, stretch your legs and enjoy the scenery and wildlife. The scenic float continues, carrying you through canyons and past ancient forests in a landscape that remains pristine and undeveloped. We set up camp early in the evening. A generous full course dinner is prepared by your guides. Montana days are long, and the evenings seem to last forever. Be prepared for short hikes or bocce ball on the beach. When the stars come out, songs and stories around the campfire bring the day to a memorable close.

Day 2

In the morning, the emphasis is on scenery as we traverse the southern boundary of Glacier National Park. We often see animals and waterfowl in this stretch.

Day 3

Awake to the sound of the river and cozy up to the morning fire with a strong cup of coffee. After another hearty breakfast, the rafts will be loaded and the river will sweep you away to another day of wilderness adventure. The water is calmer with fewer rapids as we travel into another scenic portion of the trip.

You may want to swim, relax, or just take in the sights and sounds of the canyon. The afternoon float brings us to the whitewater stretch with our favorite named rapids before returning to the West Glacier area. We arrive back at the Great Northern Resort around 4:00 p.m. Please let us know of any travel connections well in advance.
