Description: 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!

As my dad wanted to do horseback riding there I looked up our options beforehand and found out about the company. The booking was online and very easy. We booked the 1 hour horse back ride from 6 - 7 pm and got all... More

We have had the vacation of our lives this last week but flying pig was the icing on the cake. We did the express paddle and saddle and everyone loved it. It was the kids favorite and we have done a lot. Tour guides were great for both parts. Loved it! Highly recommend

Nadia hooked us up with a great guide Jay who made the trip a lot of fun! Even though it's the end of the season and water levels were low, Jay made us laugh the whole time. Great time!

Buddy was extremely enthusiastic and helpful guiding me and my two sons (15 and 7) on our first fly fishing adventure. He was patient in teaching all three of us traditional casts as well as roll casting. We caught and released a total of 11 trout, listened to elk calls, watched a beaver swim between our lines and had a... More

We had an excellent time today with the paddle and saddle express package and it was perfect for our 7 and 10 year old kids! The guides were wonderful and our river guide, Kenny, was especially accommodating and personable. We'll definately use Flying Pig again!

We were first time rafters and everyone at flying pig was really helpful. Nadia and Amy helped to get us signed up at the time we wanted and explained what would happen. Josiah was the tour guide and was very knowledgeable! We got to learn some of the history, saw a couple bald eagles, had the option to swim and... More

We did the paddle and saddle with a group of 11 ranging in ages from 7 years to 70 years. It was a great experience for all! Our guides Grayson and Payton for the trail ride and Kenny for the Rafting trip did an excellent job! We would highly recommend to everyone!
