Gallatin River Rafting

View Gallatin Trips

Big Sky, MT

Welcome to one of the premier river rafting destinations in the west! The Gallatin offers you the chance to view incredible scenery and paddle through some fun, challenging, and continuous whitewater. We offer different stretches of river for a variety of skill levels. Most of our trips begin in Beautiful Big Sky Montana. Depending on your expectations, correctly timing your trip can be the most important factor. Do you want to raft the infamous, class IV Mad Mile? The water is  highest early in the season, then tapers off as the summer progresses. Looking for a mellower ride? Check out the upper Gallatin any time or the Lower Gallatin later in the summer.


Our trips start in Big Sky and our office is conveniently located a short drive from the end of your raft trip, getting you back to your dry clothes, photos, and snacks in a matter of minutes – usually 10 or less!

Our Gallatin River office is located on Highway 191 between Bozeman and Big Sky, north of West Yellowstone. This is where you will meet for our Gallatin or Madison River Trips.

Family Trip with Teens

5 5 1
Trip was perfect for our family with 3 teenagers. Our guide was funny and did a great job making sure we were safe but also having fun the whole time. Lunch was good and the timing of the trip was perfect - we did the full day and even the travel back to the car was easy. Would highly recommend Montana Whitewater!!! Thank you!

They were very helpful in making this first rafting trip for our 86 year old father fun. Our family has rafted with Montana Whitewater two years in a row and have enjoyed our adventure both times. Hoping to go back again.
