Missoula Marathon Float (Alberton Gorge)

Sun., Sat.
5 hours

Run your heart out and cool off with us on the river. We will take care of all the work so you can relax and enjoy this awesome float. The Alberton Gorge is a fun Class III river located 35 minutes west of Missoula. In early spring, the Alberton Gorge is a high adventure, big water raft trip. As the summer warms up and the water drops , the individual rapids of the Gorge emerge, and dozens of Class I-III gems – such as Triple Bridges, Boat Eater, Tumbleweed, and Davey Jones’s Locker – are revealed. Remarkably, the Gorge offers fantastic whitewater rafting all year long!
