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 1st and September 15th.

A beautiful place to spend an afternoonRIVER UPDATE

At 11 am this morning (8/19) the governor of Montana issued a full closure of the Yellowstone River to any type of recreation indefinitely. The closure is due to a parasite that could potentially kill 20-100 percent of the fish population in the Yellowstone River. At this point, we have suspended all river trips and are not currently taking reservations. We are advising guests to reschedule trips to the latest possible time available during their stay in the area to allow for a possible reopening of the river. Fish Wildlife and Parks is the governing agency that is overseeing the monitoring of the closure and will contact us about the reopening as soon as it is possible. If you cannot reschedule for a later date, please contact us and we will refund your trip. More information on the closure can be found on the FWP website. The press release about the closure can be found by following the link listed below.
