Celebrating all things Yellowstone, the Flying Pig Adventure Company makes...

Celebrating all things Yellowstone, the Flying Pig Adventure Company makes planning a vacation to Yellowstone easy. One call and you can set up anything from a quick float down the river to a complete vacation that includes lodging and an awesome activity package. Our activities include White water or Scenic Rafting, Horseback Rides, Fly Fishing, Park Tours and even shopping at our Camp Store. Above all else, we are best known for our friendly staff and excellent customer service. We love sharing the adventures of the Yellowstone area with our guests...And it shows!

Many years ago, the Flying Pig got its start with whitewater rafting, and that is still the premier event today. Thousands of people have enjoyed our 8 Mile, 18 Mile and Overnight Rafting Trips on the Yellowstone River. We have awesome guides and our own private river access. In addition to whitewater trips, we also offer scenic floats for those who want to sit back, relax and soak in the views. Looking for a true Montana experience at a horse ranch? The Flying Pig offers horseback rides at a beautiful privately-owned alpine ranch just a few miles above town. The fun continues inside Yellowstone Park with Park Tours and Fly Fishing. In fact, we can take you fishing in some of the best trout rivers and streams in North America.

We have also expanded to a second store location at 204 Park Street in Gardiner, where we offer a full complement of camping, hiking, fishing and apparel. Looking to experience Yellowstone first hand? Want to try something new? Give us a call and we will work with you to find just the right adventure. We encourage everyone to get out there and challenge themselves by doing something they never thought they'd do....To let their Pigs Fly!

Booked a horseback ride/cookout package for my husband and I and our German exchange student. All my paperwork said "report to Flying Pig at 6PM" but when we arrived, we found that we were supposed to be there at 5 and had missed the ride. Even though NOTHING said 5PM on my paperwork, they were unphased and did not offer... More

After a couple of days exploring Yellowstone National Park, we took a break and did the full day rafting trip with 2 adults and 2 children, ages 10 and 7. Our river guide was Tyler and he made our trip very enjoyable. He was great with the kids and gave them the opportunity to participate and really enjoy the rapids.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful fly fishing experience with Buddy Holcombe. I had never fly fished before and Buddy was patient, knowledgeable and caring. We caught and released an abundance of trout. Buddy kept our experience interesting and was an all around nice guy to be around. I highly recommend requesting him specifically.

We arrived in Gardiner and on the recommendation of our hotel clerk, went with Flying Pig, located just down the street. Because of timing, we opted for the 1 hour horseback riding/2 hour rafting, which was PERFECT for our family. Our girls, 9 and 11 had a blast and said the rafting was the best thing they did in our... More

We enjoyed a wonderful rafting trip with Alex (who also happened to be from MN). She made the 2 hour trip fun for everyone from our 8 year olds to 14 year old! Kids are still talking about how much fun the had that day!

My family and I spent a day fly fishing with Buddy Holcombe a few miles off the path in Yellowstone. What an awesome adventure! We hiked some goat trails to get to the river and away from roads and people. We all caught and released tons of brook trout, spent a beautiful sunny day in a lovely remote area with... More

Our group of 7 adults had a blast with Grant as our guide on the 8-mile raft trip. It was my first experience rafting, and Grant made it super-fun. He also shared historical and geological information of the area. We had a wonderful time together, and highly recommend Flying Pig and the rafting experience.

Grant was our guide... he made it lots of fun and told us lots about the surrounding Yellowstone area. It was a nice relaxing day with some fun rapids. Nothing too crazy so it was perfect for those in our group that were new to rafting. Nice sack lunch on the full day... We saw 3 BALD EAGLES... very cool.... More

This company had experienced and friendly guides. They give you choices as to how much thrill you desire once on the trip. My trip was in late July so there was no fear of extreme rapids. You were able to swim in calm waters but the water is cold! Flying Pig goes over safety before entering the raft. They provide... More
