Rafting Scenic Tours 1
If you are looking for sightseeing, wildlife viewing, or just pure relaxation, then our scenic Montana river rafting trips are just for you! Both the Blackfoot and Clark Fork Rivers have a variety of options great for all ages and ability levels. The confluence of three world-class rivers in the Missoula Valley affords us a variety of spectacular floating options right in our backyard. All of our Missoula town floats and lower Blackfoot trips are a great introduction to rafting and are ideal for families with young kids, or anyone who wants to spend a quick couple of hours enjoying the river.
We specialize in scenic river raft trips — leisurely float trips — which allow us to work with our guests or group to create the river experience you are looking for—suited to your pace, sense of adventure, interests, or group.
