Great views. Peaceful. Not far from town. Many fishing holes. We love spending a day on this river with family.

This is a must do while in southwest Montana. The drive from Bozeman to West Yellowstone follows the Gallatin River most of the way. The scenery is great, you will have a good chance to see sheep, elk and deer along the way. On occasion...More

Days enveloped by mist rising from pure waters, a steady snow melting as the flakes hit rock carved over centuries. The pine needles painted in white, the aspen and cottonwoods struggling to hold their golden leaves as the clutch of winter takes hold. Seventeen degrees...More

This trip was a weekend of fishing, mostly on the Gallatin. Scenery sucks. No fish near any of the turnouts. Nothing else to do. Everyone (but me and my friends) should avoid the entire river. :)

You can't go to Bozeman without driving down into the canyon at least as far as Big Syk. Take your time. Stop at a few of the pull offs.

As a person who loves to take landscape photos, this River offers some of the best views. It is a quick drive through Bozeman and worth it. There are so many turn outs to stop and get the perfect shots or to simply take in...More

We took the gentlest white water raft that there was. Out guide, kristen, was obviously very skilled. She could hold a meaningful conversation while saying " paddle one forward ". We skirted all the rocks except the ones she wanted us to hit and bounce....More

Spent a beautiful afternoon on the river just hanging out. Put together a great picnic from the Co-Op grocer in Bozeman and found a nice quiet spot.

Took a trip down the Gallatin with Montana Whitewater. Our guide Jimmy was very competent and kept us out of trouble while at the same time ensuring we hit some great whitewater!

This company and its staff are awesome. Bill was our guide and he was so much fun. It was heart pumping but never felt unsafe. Can't wait to do it again ❤️😍

Storm Castle is between Gallatin Gateway and Big Sky off of 191. It is in the lovely Gallatin Canyon. You will see a turn off for it. It's a great hike. Be sure to wear sun protection and maybe don't make it your first... More
