Glacier National Park Rafting Headquarters
Glacier Outdoor Center is your launch point for a thrilling Glacier National Park rafting adventure and outdoor fun. Here on the edge of Glacier National Park, you can experience Montana at its best –whitewater rafting, fly fishing, kayaking, and horseback riding. This is far beyond your ordinary vacation (but easy to get to). Look through the rafting trips we offer and make reservations. Set a course for Glacier Outdoor Center and clear space in your mind for some wonderful memories.
Since 1976, Glacier Raft Company has run a variety of fun-filled Glacier National Park rafting trips on the rivers that border the Park. May through September, rain or shine, take on the Middle Fork's family-friendly class II-III whitewater or appreciate the stunning river canyon on a peaceful, leisurely float without the whitewater. Half day and full day river trips depart from our rafting office conveniently located in the Village of West Glacier just outside the West Entrance to Glacier National Park. Add more excitement to your trip in a smaller sport raft or inflatable kayak or wrap up your whitewater adventure with a great dinner cooked by your guide on the river's bank.
Consider a multi-day river trip as an alternative to a motel, plus breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included! Spend a night or two on the river, rafting, fishing and enjoying the river during the day, and gathering around the fire and camping under the Big Sky at night.
Our trademark whitewater trip accesses the upper stretches of the Middle Fork of the Flathead in Montana's remote Great Bear Wilderness. Refresh yourself with this unparalleled backcountry experience. Fly, hike, or ride in on horseback to access this pristine landscape, then spend four days on the Wild and Scenic Upper Middle Fork which boasts class II-IV whitewater and matchless trout fishing.
If fishing is your passion, our incredible Great Bear Wilderness fly fishing backcountry trip offers up some of the best dry fly fishing for native Westslope Cutthroat trout in Montana. As the only Montana outfitter permitted to offer this trip in the Great Bear Wilderness, we seldom see other anglers on the river. Truly a fishing experience you will treasure for a lifetime. No other trip in the lower 48 compares.
