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.

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 #1 comment we get from our guests is that their rafting trip with us 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 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 and September.

A beautiful place to spend an afternoonRIVER UPDATE

On Aug 19th 2016, Fish, Wildlife, and Parks closed the Yellowstone River to all recreation including rafting, kayaking, and general frolicking indefinitely. The closure is due to a parasite killing native fish, and while the parasite is not dangerous to humans, the agency wanted to eliminate stress in hopes that the fish would recover.
This closure has shaken our community. We love this river and want to help it heal in whatever way necessary, even if that means giving it a little alone time. We have closed for the season and are now accepting reservations for next summer.
