Please Call to Book Your Adventure 406-888-5454
Be your own guide — Explore 11 scenic river miles with the entire day to fish, swim, picnic and bask in the sun. The self-guide is for those do-it-yourself individuals who would rather go at it alone. Included in the price of the trip is raft and safety equipment, river shuttle assistance and basic river paddling instruction. Feel free to bring your own fishing gear or you can rent some from our fly shop!
The trip begins at Glacier Outdoor Center. Check in for your trip is at 9:00 am with a 9:30 departure (Please be on time, this trip only leaves once per day). From there, your group will follow our guide to the West Glacier River Access where they will set up the rafts and equipment for you. The final step in setting up the trip is to shuttle your personal vehicle to the take-out. Our guide will have your follow them in your vehicle to a private river access which is at the end of the trip. Once your vehicle is parked, our guide will shuttle you back to the West Glacier River Access to begin your float trip.
The next 3-5 hours are yours to float 11 river miles down the beautiful Middle Fork of the Flathead River alongside Glacier National Park. At the end of your trip, you can either deflate the boats and return them to Glacier Outdoor Center, or we can arrange to pick up your boat and equipment for a small fee. If you arrange to have us pick up your boat, we ask that you arrive to the take-out no later than 4:00 pm.
