Although when we booked and were told it was Level 3 in places, this was a great session for us as there was plenty of time to enjoy the view and rafting as well as some fun rapids. Perfect. One one side is Yellowstone, and...More

In an amazing feat of endurance and strength, Mattie paddled us 18 miles against 40 mph headwinds. Mattie fearlessly navigated gushing waterways and ensured everyone on the boat got soaked, always keeping us prepped for the next challenge. While on our raft trip Mattie was...More

I was in front (in August )and got soaked. I did not wear a wet suit. It started to rain and got windy during the last half hour, but we kept moving to keep warm!

The North gate is the only gate open this time of year, so you will be able to get into the Park. You will see lots of bison and hopefully elk! Enjoy Gardiner! It’s a cute town.
