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.

Early spring raftingRIVER UPDATE

Spring in Montana means the weather can change at any minute! And the scenery is incredible! Snow covered mountains, green undulating hills, birds flitting and soaring through the air, and wildlife cruising the banks of the river. Sure its a little colder than it will be later this summer but it's a great time to be here and see all the wonderful sites without the crowds! We offer wetsuits, booties, fleece, and splash jackets to keep you warm on the river at no extra charge! So come join us for an amazing day on a spectacular freeflowing river!
