Gallatin River Learn to Fish, Half Day Raft & Classic Zip

Fly across the Gallatin River, paddle down it and seek out it’s gorgeous trout for a great day of adventure and fun! See the best the Gallatin has to offer!

The Classic ZipLine tour is exceptionally exciting and also a great introduction to zip lining, with 3 zips and 3 adventure bridges. You will begin by ascending to a tree platform 50 ft in the air where you will take a leap into the unknown on the first zip. Our second zip line, deemed “The Wiley Wire of the Wild West,” will take you soaring over 800ft across the Gallatin River. Then, strike a pose and show us your zipping style on zip 3, “Grandma’s House,” as you fly over the river and through the woods! Weight limit 260 lbs.

Return to the Gallatin Office for a bite. You can purchase lunch at Blazing Paddles Cafe or bring your own, then start gearing up for rafting.

The rafting portion is 3 hours, with about 2 on the water. The Gallatin River is a narrow river that runs through a scenic, rocky canyon. It has fun rapids and is the most challenging commercial rafting available in the Yellowstone Area. We run 2 main sections of the river, catering to a more or less challenging experience. Our friendly office staff we will help you pick the appropriate one depending on your group and water levels.
