Blackfoot River Rafting Trips

Offering Montana’s best family whitewater  in May and June, the Blackfoot River is an incredibly beautiful glacial stream offering at least 66 miles of float-able water. It provides outstanding rafting, fantastic scenery and excellent solid class II and III whitewater. We love the Blackfoot for it’s crystal clear water, steady current, and its beautiful Montana scenery and wildlife viewing. We float different sections of the Blackfoot depending on the river’s flow and time of year.
