Appease your appetite for adventure on a 2-hour rafting adventure of the Yellowstone River from Gardiner. Experience the exhilaration of rafting on the frenetic rapids of the Yellowstone River while admiring the spectacular scenery of Yellowstone National Park. Allow a professional guide to direct you to paddle hard and fast over thrilling rapids and, when you reach calmer sections of the water, stop for a refreshing swim in the Yellowstone River.  

What to Expect
The trip begins with check-in at the rafting office in Gardiner, Montana a half-hour before the scheduled rafting trip. After you get checked in, you will be offered facilities to change into wetsuits or other appropriate water gear provided. Once everyone is ready, your guides will shuttle you to the river where they will provide safety instruction.

From there, you board your raft and paddle off, with your guide giving constant instruction. You will see 8 miles of the beautiful Yellowstone River and experience Class II, III and even a Class IV depending on the time of the year. The Gallatin National Forest borders the Yellowstone to your left and you will have plenty of scenic viewing opportunity. Your guide will even let you jump in for a swim!

About 20 minutes into your trip, you can expect to be photographed by a professional photographer. As your trip draws to a close, your guides will pick you up and drive 10 minutes back to Gardiner where you can change out of your river garb, view your photos and purchase other mementos from your trip.

Can’t help you with that one—- it certainly would be better if you had blue skies and mild temps like we did! My guess is that the rafts will proceed in everything other than thunderstorms.
