Glacier National Park River Guide Training and River Safety Courses

Montana's Premier River Safety Training Center

Glacier River School provides training in-river and rope rescue skills as well as boat handling training in all crafts. We are based at the west entrance to Glacier National Park in Montana. We are part of the Great Northern Whitewater Raft and Resort, which has over 40 years of experience in whitewater and fishing trips on the Flathead River in Montana. Our guides are the best in the industry, they excel in professionalism, expertise and unparalleled experience.

Now you can learn from the best by attending Glacier River School at Great Northern Resort on the boundary waters of Glacier National Park. Our instructors are certified by American Red Cross, Leave No Trace, Rescue 3 International and the American Canoe Association and each instructor is specialized.

Some focus on river safety and accident avoidance with technical river rescue. Others specialize in kayaking and developing a boater from learning to roll to playboating techniques. Still others are devoted to helping rafters with boat handling skills on both oar-framed and paddle rafts!!
