Owner description: 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!

Had a great rafting trip with The Flying Pig. I took my two teenage granddaughters on this trip and we all had fun. Lots of water splashing everyone in the rapids plus some calm stretches where you could enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our guide gave everyone a chance to jump in the river in slower parts plus gave the kids a chance to play raft roulette (stand on the front while everyone spins the raft). Would love to do this trip again!

While on a family vacation to Yellowstone we took part of a day and did a whitewater rafting trip (our first as a family). When we first pulled into town we were surprised to see an elk lazily strolling down the Main Street. The folks at Flying Pigs were very personable and it felt like rafting with a group of friends rather than a paid guide. Both of my kids really liked sitting on the front of the boat and getting to swim in the Yellowstone river. My wife enjoyed her swim as well even though it was unplanned! We liked it so much that we paid $38 for a CD with pictures of our trip down the river. We are just wrapping up a 3,000 mile trip out west and our whole family agrees this was the favorite thing we did.

We went fly fishing the first day and it was a fabulous experience! We were all beginners so Tyler and Eric took us out to a lake instead of dealing with the river. We hiked in an amazing 2.5 miles to Cascade lake. The scenery was breathtaking and as pleasing as the fly fishing! Tyler was so professional and yet down to earth and taught us how to cast. He and Eric continually made sure we were learning, untangled our lines, helped us land our fish and offered tidbits of advice. We all caught fish!! (Catch and release). It was a wonderful day with great guides and so worth the money!!! Never made to feel stupid and liked they just enjoyed teaching others to do something they loved so much. Tyler and Eric, thanks for an awesome adventure!! The only suggestion is that if you have a large group, be sure you pick one name and have everyone sign up under that one so there is no confusion as we had a few difficulties with their computer system. Go for it; fly fishing was GREAT!!'

We did the 1 hour horseback ride and dinner. It rained all day and was raining when we drove up to the ranch which is atop a mountain above Gardiner. Only one other family braved the weather so we had a small group. Maybe it was the rain or distant thunder or the sun trying to peek through the clouds, but whatever it was, it was just magical up there! Yes, the horses want nose to butt -- that's what trail horses do! The meadows were beautiful and we enjoyed our time with these gentle animals. The cowboys were all very helpful. As it was cold and raining, dinner was inside by a fireplace. Kids ate as much steak as teenagers want to eat and we then enjoyed the musical talent of 3 of the cowboys. A guitar and their voices and excellent good humor made for a memorable evening for all of us.
