Great Northern Resort has teamed up with two of our best neighbors, who just happen to be the greatest horse outfitters in all of "Glacier Country" Swan Mountain Outfitters and Raw Hide Outfitters.
These cowboys have been providing scenic horseback trail rides for over a quarter century in our part of the country. Swan Mountain Outfitters is located inside Glacier National Park and has several locations in the park to choose from. Raw Hide Outfitters is across the street from Great Northern Resort, and offers a variety of times and rides throughout the day.
"What about experience"? No rafting or horseback riding experience is necessary for these adventures. This stretch of river is great for children age 12 and up during our Spring Runoff and for children age 8 and up in July and August.
This is an outstanding way to spend a summer day with your whole family!
Most people prefer to do the trail ride in the morning so they have a better opportunity to see wildlife and then return to Great Northern Resort after a lunch on the way or stop at Great Northern Barbecue by Ed McGrew located in the caboose by our main office. After a short bus ride up the canyon we put in for a half-day of whitewater adventure.
We return to the resort in the late afternoon and there you can view photos of your rafting trip. Our office will be happy to help you with arrangements for your trail ride. You will receive a voucher from Great Northern Resort that will go towards your trail ride.
Daily: 9:45am and 2:30pm (check in times at corral)
