Morning Ride; Afternoon Raft
Come Experience the Best Glacier National Park Horseback Riding!
Try our morning ride and afternoon raft trip for the best rafting & horseback riding Montana has to offer! For the perfect adventure, blend the rugged beauty of a horseback ride just outside of Glacier National Park with a pristine river trip on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River for the perfect adventure.
The horseback portion of your trip departs from Swan Mountain Outfitters corral in West Glacier just outside the West Entrance to Glacier National Park. The rafting portion of the trip departs just 1/2 mile from your horseback ride at Glacier Raft Company in the Village of West Glacier. Between trips, you will have plenty of time to have a nice lunch on your own.
The trip ends at the bridge in West Glacier where you will regain your land legs during a short walk back to our office, your car, dry clothes, and a chance to purchase trip photos and souvenirs!
