It’s Rafting Time!

This was the first family whitewater rafting trip (ages 53 to 10). Our rafting guides, Aiden and Mo, were excellent. I was a bit nervous because my son is only 10. Aiden and Mo helped us find the right rafting gear that would fit us and keep us warm while focus on the river. The scenery was gorgeous. We loved it and we will return!

Better-trained guides make a huge difference

A top-notch experience. The guides are much better trained than some of the larger competitors - it's a family-run business that treats their employees like family, and it shows. We had a blast!

An ok experience

Grouchy lady who checks you in is rude. I couldn’t remember her name but she is not the kind of person you want at the front interacting with the customers. Desert Mel was great and the excursion took longer then planned. Overall a great trip other than the grouchy and quite rude check in lady. I was also stranded without a ride and Gabe in the coffee shop gave me a ride back to whitefish! I would have never made it back to my hotel in time for my event without him. THANK YOU GABE! He went over and beyond!!!

This was our first time white water rafting and it was such an amazing experience! Our guide, Summer, was so knowledgeable and down to earth. I would recommend anyone out this way definitely take your trip with them. Thanks for the memories! Ready to level up 🤙

Chris was a great guide. Fun, engaging and informative. Trip was the right length of time. Saw 3 eagles and other wild life

We glad you thoroughly enjoyed your ride with Chris. The Middle Fork of the Flathead River is amazing and always fun to hear about the wildlife sightings. We hope the rest of your vacation was just as amazing.

Fun trip. Very relaxing. Was hoping for a little more white water but scenery beautiful and guide knowledgeable
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
We're glad to hear you had a fun relaxing trip. The beauty of the Flathead is it's a wild and scenic free flowing river so it changes from spring to fall. We'd encourage you to come out with us again on your next visit to Glacier Park in the spring or early summer. Maybe even an overnight night trip would be fun.

Couple of issues- we signed up for a half day trip, but we were out less than 3 hours including the shuttle. The person that answered the phone said they had wetsuits, but didn’t mention there was an addition charge ( I would have brought my own) Guide was solid but knew little about the wildlife we might see

We had a great day of rafting with Sam and Ozzie. Highly recommended! The guide did a great job showing us a good time but keeping us safe.

We'll definitely pass this on to them. Sam loves the river and sharing everything he knows about the Glacier on his tours. We hope the rest of your experience was just a positive and look forward to hosting you on your next trip to Glacier Park.
