The high mountain peaks of Montana's Glacier Country accumulate large amounts of snow each winter, which supply an abundance of water for the three forks of the Flathead River. Every spring folks from around the world begin to arrive around May, to enjoy the mountains, valleys and rivers, eager to test their skill and to challenge the whitewater of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River.
Great Northern Whitewater runs a fleet of High side self-bailer rafts ranging from 12' to 16' in length. Rafts accommodate 6-10 people. Most of the trips are paddleboat guided. Oar-guided trips are also available.
