Our whitewater rafting trips take you down 12 miles of the Clark Fork River through the Alberton Gorge. In addition to the gorge’s awesome fifteen rapids, the river runs past gorgeous scenery and meanders through deep canyons with crystal blue tributaries. There is plenty of history and folk lore to be encountered during your rafting trip down the Clark Fork River.

So, whether you are an avid fly fisherman or a novice eager to learn a new way to spend time in the great outdoors, our guides will accommodate your needs. We track the hatches and know how to spend the day enticing the native cutthroat, bull, and brown trout to strike on the day to day patterns.
