Blackfoot River Easy River Rafting!
Easy Scenic Floating
CLASS II & EASY FLOATING, 4 & OLDER, APRIL-AUGUST
The Blackfoot river offers a variety of rafting opportunities, including a gorgeous scenic float through classic Montana scenery. This is the famous “River that Runs Through It” on the way to Glacier National Park: a must-see for summer travelers!
Be Apart Of The Legend!
On Pangaea’s “Easy Scenic Float” you can choose between paddling or relaxing. If you chose not to paddle, your expert guide will row you through legendary country, pointing out Western highlights and pausing occasionally at the most picturesque spots on the river. Full day trips include lunch and several stops along the river, while the half day float has no lunch and stops only once on the shore.
A Little Of Everything
The main Blackfoot River offers outstanding scenery as it meanders through undeveloped river bottoms, occasional farmland, and secluded canyons. It’s an excellent area to see bald eagles, as several pairs nest along the river. Look for white-tailed deer, elk, sand-hill cranes, and various kinds of waterfowl. Half-day and Full-day trips are available.
Keep Your Eyes Open For The Unexpected
You’ll see deer, eagles, beaver and an occasional elk, moose or bear as your cares drift away. This trip will relax, entertain, and inspire. This trip is the safest, driest option for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the river without the whitewater.
Enjoy Just A Taste Of Whitewater!
The Blackfoot River doesn’t have the kind of whitewater like the Alberton Gorge on the Clark Fork, but it does have milder rapids that you can blast through or avoid depending on your mood. Your guide will get you wet and entertain the kids if you want to introduce them to what whitewater rafting is like.
Back at the river house before you hit the road, enjoy the Happiest Social Hour in Montana – FREE beer, juice, soda or water while you watch yourself on our video screen running the biggest rapid of the day.
Fun For The Whole Family
Perfect for the whole family, from the youngest of kids to active grandparents, eye-popping scenery and a mouth watering lunch make the Blackfoot River in Montana unforgettable. Raft, float and swim as ospreys and eagles soar overhead and beaver, otters and fish play beneath your raft. This trip is perfect for kids 4 and older and is a great mix of easy, scenic floating, two splashy class II waves and plenty of time for relaxing or playing games. Squirt guns are included on every boat!
Your Guide Makes The Difference
Your guides are highly qualified river runners who have years of experience and hours of training on the river. Not only are they the safest guides on the river, they are the “FUNNEST” guides on the river too. Squirt guns and boat games are standard on every trip. Our guides would make a mud puddle fun!!!
