"Life is like the river, sometimes it sweeps you gently along and sometimes the rapids come out of nowhere."
– Emma Smith

The Gallatin River originates in Yellowstone National Park and flows all the way to the confluence of the Missouri River. It is one of the premier river rafting destinations in the in the US with incredible scenery and some fun, challenging, and continuous whitewater. Montana Whitewater offers different stretches of river for a variety of skill levels. Most of their trips begin in just right up the road towards Big Sky.
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. Photo: Montana Whitewater

The iconic Yellowstone River is the longest free flowing river in the lower 48. This massive river drains much of Yellowstone National Park and it’s surrounding wilderness areas. The Yellowstone white water rafting trip is a fun, wide, high volume river that features rolling wave rapids. Rapids vary on size depending on water levels. Families love it! The Yellowstone River rafting trip is great for children ages 6 and up. Spectacular views may include spotting wildlife such as river otters and bald eagles. Photo: Montana Whitewater
