My family and I really enjoyed the half day rafting. We've been whitewater rafting before so knew what to expect but we were still blown away by the amazing scenery, great food, and new friends! It was a perfect introduction to Glacier NP.

Dear Coolrich59, Thank you for your kind review. Our river levels change throughout the season based on the run off and precipitation. This year we had a lot of snow but almost no rain all summer so the river was running a little low by...More

We felt very lucky to fish the Flathead with Hilary as our guide. Her wise, patient counsel helped us catch fish and expand our knowledge. She even provided a kosher-friendly, gluten-free lunch that was perfect. We could not have imagined a better experience.

Even though it was late season and the water level was down, we had a blast. This was a highlight of our trip, despite being in Glacier during the wild fires.

Trip was pleasant, but guide was not helpful and did not offer advice or untangle lines or offer any tips on fishing on the river. Would not book with them again for fishing.

We were there in early May, so 30 days before you. You'll be working that paddle, so between that and the wetsuit, we didn't feel cold at all. And it was sleeting during our trip (but it didn't matter -- was still amazing).
