Just the best time. Best cooks. Great whitewater. Fun memories. Wouldn't float with any other rafting co. Saw lots of wildlife and learned how the Flathead River got it's name along with many useful jeopardy facts.

If you need a cabin that sleeps up to 10 people, this is great. However, the folks sleeping in an upstairs open area or on the sofa by the kitchen won't have privacy. We appreciated the kitchen as there aren't many restaurants in nearby West Glacier. And the firepit under the starry night sky was great. There's also a sand... More

This is an incredible journey into the past. Resort, rooms consist of cabooses wonderful gardens and restaurant with great views. Lounge in basement. Beautiful resort. Situated beautifully above the gorge. Actually the crude oil is shipped by rail through this pristine area. The lodge is rustic and rough hewn hand made and decorated with all period furnishings. A must see... More

Great outfitter, friendly helpful staff. Trip was as advertised, first half clam, second half whitewater. great lunch at rivers edge, well prepared by caterer and raft guides. Great size group, raft not overloaded. River was cold water in June so they even provided wet suites at no charge. Spectacular views and good rapids !

The log cabins that the resorts offer are wonderful, peaceful and exactly what I was looking for when I booked a honeymoon. The whole process was easy from start to finish! Jordan helped us book and was super great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We did a scenic float tour with May, who was very knowledgeable and super... More

We booked a half day whitewater rafting with the dinner option over the Memorial day weekend. I called to ask a few questions and Kayla was extremely helpful and prompt with her responses. Booking was a breeze. Our party of 11 ended up in two boats with Garrett and Sean as our guides. The trip turned out to be an... More

Private log cabins along the highway feel secluded and peaceful, even though you are moments from West Glacier and the national park. Staff made good off season dining recommendations which required a drive back to Columbia Falls --well worth the scenic drive, to Three Forks Restaurant. The Going-to-the-Sun road was just as I hoped for early in May: closed to... More

My husband and I were married last year at Great Northern and it could not have been any more magical or delightful! The staff were lovely and helpful and everything was great! They have everything you need in all the chalets! We rented all the cabins for all our closest friends and it was one big friend getaway all weekend!... More

We booked for a large group over the phone. User friendly and clear instructions. We requested a specific guide and we were all about to be on one raft with that guide. He was skilled, safe and informative. This was a highlight of our family reunion and we would return to do it all again.
