My husband and I took the rafting trip with dinner as part of our honeymoon adventure throughout Montana. First of all, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The rafting guide was very informative and friendly, but not so talkative that we felt we had to make nonsensical small-talk to keep the trip from being "awkward." The trip was beautiful,... More

My daughter and I recently took a whitewater kayak lesson on Flathead River through Great Northern Kayak school. We have taken a few lessons elsewhere in the past, but are basically beginners. Our instructor, Tyler, was very patient and put together a great lesson for us. Needless to say, it was a lot of fun and we both walked away... More

We were trying to travel with our 8 kids on an extreme budget, camping and eating from the cooler as much as possible. When we entered the area to begin our adventure through Glacier National Park, we had no intentions of white water rafting. My husband went inside "Just to see" how much it would be for the 10 of...

My two out of state friends from high school came to visit the Glacier National Park region. We decided to take the rafting with dinner tour. We did not want any white water rafting, so this seemed the perfect trip. It was the first guided rafting I had ever done, so I was excited. Our guide, Cole, was experienced and... More

We took 4 of us on a river rafting trip in late August of 2016. The river levels were lower than earlier in the spring and summer, but for some of our group that was preferable. There were enough Rapids to have fun and everyone got wet at one time or another. Our guide, Cole, was friendly, informative and humorous.... More

We had a great day on the river. Our guide was funny and informative. He cooked a yummy lunch for us. Jumping off the raft and swimming in the river was a bonus as it was a hot day. The first part of the river was very calm and fairly slow going. After lunch it really picked up. There were... More

We had an absolute blast in the river with the Great Northern rafting company. We had a professional guide who made our young children feel comfortable on the river. In addition, our ten year old son participated in the river school for water safety and learned a lot. We can't wait to return for our next trip down the mighty... More

We had an outstanding day of fishing with our guide, and all around good guy, Joshua. A real pleasure to experience this beautiful place with a pro. Highly recommend this to fishermen of any experience level. Rafting or fishing, this is a must if you're in the area.

Two days before our trip to Montana, I broke my foot. We had planned lots of hiking and bicycling, that were now impossible to do. We carried on with our trip anyway, determined to make the best of it. Great Northern was happy to take us on a float trip and eager to accommodate whatever limitation I had. We ended... More
