Soak up Serenity with our Scenic Flathead River Rafting Trip!

If a scenic cruise on calm waters is your cup of tea, then this is the trip for you. Our Flathead river rafting scenic tour allows you to fully immerse yourself in the spectacular beauty of Glacier National Park and the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Aboard this 2-3 hour trip, an experienced guide will share interpretive information and the area’s history while escorting you down one of the most pristine watersheds in the world. Wildlife abounds on this stretch; you may see eagles, osprey, and maybe even an elusive bear or moose!

Scenic floats are ideal for those looking for a restful, rejuvenating river experience. They’re also a great option for families with small children or individuals looking for a trip that doesn’t require much physical effort. Some paddling is necessary, but these floats are anything but strenuous. If this sounds like your perfect day, then this Flathead river rafting trip is for you!

Great company, wonderful guide!

I've rafted with Glacier Raft multiple times. Each time has been great. The guides are personable and welcoming. Recently I had LP as my guide. He was professional and funny with tons of knowledge about the area.

Had a blast with Glacier Raft

My family took an afternoon trip down the Middle Fork with Russell. The whole crew was fun and experienced. Russell as a guide was very knowledgeable about the area and kept us in the boat. I’d highly recommend this trip.

Totally Awesome!

I’ve been rafting a bunch over the years and had an awesome time on the river with Glacier. Our guide Kendra was the coolest person I have ever rafted with. She really knows her stuff.
