Whitewater Rafting near Yellowstone in Montana

Rafting a wild Montana river will be the highlight of your family vacation in the Yellowstone National Park area.

This year the Yellowstone Raft Company will turn 39! Come celebrate with us!

The Yellowstone Raft Company pioneered white water rafting on the Yellowstone River back in 1978 and are the only company that is fully permitted by both the National Park Service and the National Forest Service to run trips on the Yellowstone River. To this day we continue to provide safe, fun, exciting, and entertaining trips year after year. We are proud of our professional guides, superior training, experience, and commitment to white water excellence.

The number one comment we get from our guests is that their rafting trip on the Yellowstone River was the highlight of their trip to Yellowstone National Park and Gardiner, Montana. Don't miss this opportunity to experience this spectacular river with one of our half or full day whitewater or scenic trips. Or check out our combo trips that combine rafting and  horseback riding or ziplining or hiking. And if you're looking for a little more adventure... our kayaking trips are a great way to get to know the river and challenge yourself! Go where your adventure takes you!

We run raft trips daily between May 1st and September 15th.


 Winter has settled upon our valley! The mountains are coated in snow, storing all that frozen water for the long winter. The river is at its lowest flow, clear, dark green, and rimmed in ice. Wildlife can be seen everywhere you look up and down the valley. Bison, Elk, Pronghorn Antelope, Deer, and Bald Eagles! The winter is the quiet time here where animals hibernate or conserve energy and the people of Gardiner prepare for another beautiful exciting summer! Our office is now closed but we are accepting reservations online or by phone. We are looking forward to warmer days and rafting in the sunshine with new and old friends and family! We hope you'll join us!
