Come to the River

Do you yearn for a break from the hum-drum, are you aching for adventure? Then come to the river. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging your need for the danger of rapids, or the constant pull of the current. And there's no shame in admitting that you don't know how to maneuver the waters yourself. The river, like life itself, can offer guidance as you rush down its course. If you're ready to accept this counsel, let one of these seasoned river veterans take you there.

The folks at River Source understand your need for whitewater, offering half-day and all-day rafting trips on the Yellowstone right through the Yankee Jim Canyon. But, they also understand your need for independence. If you want, they'll turn you loose with an inflatable kayak and meet you toward the end of the trip, offering you the chance to converse with the river mano a mano.

If you thirst for variety, choose any of the three rivers that Yellowstone Raft Company floats. For an exciting trip with a relaxing finish, let the Madison River usher you over the "Kitchen Sink" rapids and end with a soak in Norris Hot Springs. Raft the Yellowstone River, starting in Gardiner, to maneuver some Class-III rapids. Or, let the Gallatin River just south of Big Sky rush your craft into miles of Class-IV rapids.

Perhaps you seek adventure through the pages of history. If so, the Yellowstone Safari Company's float on the Jefferson and Madison is for you. Their knowledgeable guides give you insightful facts about Lewis and Clark, while you search for seldom-seen wildlife.

Geyser Whitewater

If you're searching for a completely unique way to experience the river, Geyser Whitewater has an option for you. If you wanna be a cowboy, let these folks lead you on an exploration of the Gallatin's scenery by horseback before climbing into a raft. If you like a jam-packed day, then rent a mountain bike to cruise the scenery, scale Geyser Whitewater's 30-foot climbing wall, and take a kayaking lesson before you let the experts maneuver you downriver. Or, if rafting itself is quite enough, thank you, surge down the Gallatin first, then grab a bite at the snack bar and sit by the fireplace to swap some of your new tall tales.
