Clark For River
Easy Scenic Floating – Tarkio Canyon
CLASS II & EASY FLOATING, 4 & OLDER, APRIL-SEPTEMBER
The steep canyon shadows awe and inspire everyone we take down this stretch of the Clark Fork River. Known by locals as Tarkio Canyon, the beauty will silence you.
A Raft Trip Through Time
Old Chinese-built footings from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad still hold railroad tracks in place. Enormous, house-size rocks and deep, cold channels swirl peacefully underneath the centuries of history slowly being buried by nature. These old mining towns no longer survive, but an old cable car still whispers the stories of many an old timer. You can’t see any of this fascinating antiquity from the road.
Keep Your Eyes Open For The Unexpected!
You’ll see deer, eagles, beaver and the occasional elk, moose or bear as your cares drift away. This trip will relax, entertain, and inspire young and old alike. 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 Tarkio Canyon on the Clark Fork River doesn’t have the kind of whitewater like the Alberton Gorge, but it does have three 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 Clark Fork 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 ages 4 and up 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!

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!!!
