Montana Whitewater Rafting and ZipLine Company runs all three of the best rivers near the North and West Entrances to Yellowstone National Park, with two convenient locations in Gardiner and Big Sky.
The Gallatin River (Class I-IV), near Big Sky, is a small Rocky Mountain river ideal for people looking for an exciting experience. It is narrow, swift moving, and technical and has the highest class rapids in the area.
The Yellowstone River (Class I-III), in Gardiner, is a wide, deep river featuring big, splashy waves and is a fun ride for the whole family. It offers a varied experience of rapids and scenic floating with opportunities to take the plunge and go for a river swim!
The Madison River (Class I-IV) offers full-day wilderness rafting through the Beartrap Canyon. Remote and scenic, this river flows out of Ennis Lake and through a steep, rocky canyon. Amazing scenery, great rapids, peaceful floating, top guides and gourmet lunch make this a very special experience. We also offer tubing trips on the lower Madison River. This is a great option for families with young children, or anyone looking for a mellow day out on the river.
Zipline and Fishing Tours
We also offer ZipLine Tours out of both locations, giving guests a guided aerial adventure, soaring through Montana's scenic landscapes. Zip line across a river or through a historic mountain ranch on one of four trip options! Combine a zip line tour with a rafting trip for a full day of fun- the Zip ‘n Dip Package!
The fly-fishing center offers a Learn to Fly-Fish Program on the banks of the Gallatin River—a great option for families. For experienced anglers, we have guided trips on the Gallatin, Yellowstone, and Madison Rivers.
