Whitewater Rafting in Glacier National Park

The Flathead River attracts tons of whitewater rafters every year. With three forks (Upper, Middle, and North), and varying whitewater rafting classifications (Class I – IV), there’s bound to be a whitewater rafting trip that’s right for you and your family on your Glacier National Park vacation. The Kicking Horse River in British Columbia is also a great whitewater rafting river for beginner and intermediate rafters alive!

While you’re in Glacier National Park in Montana, you should also consider heading down to Durango, Colorado for some great Colorado whitewater rafting.


If whitewater rafting isn’t quite what you had in mind for a day on one of Glacier National Park’s rivers, try fishing instead! With several fishing lakes to choose from in Glacier National Park, you can’t go wrong.
