close-up-raftersThe Gallatin River is a classic whitewater run with continuous rapids that increase in intensity as you float downriver. At low water the Gallatin features lots of technical maneuvering through the rocky river. At high water you will find yourself making fast decisions as you navigate through larger features. The Gallatin River has different sections of river that can suit different ability levels. The Classic Half Day Trip on the Gallatin includes some class II-III rapids followed by the infamous Mad Mile which can feature class IV features at high water.

The Upper Whitewater Trips on the Gallatin are great for families, first timers, and during  high water months when the water levels are just too high to run the legendary Mad Mile stretch. There are still many fun rapids in this section!

The Full Day Trip provides you with the most scenic trip we have to offer. You will find yourself floating by places where scenes of the American classic film “A River Runs Through It” were filmed. A deli-style lunch is also provided on this trip!
