Favorite Fall Family Adventure– Whitewater Rafting in Montana
Wild West Rafting
Over Thanksgiving we asked our family to share some of their favorite adventures of 2015–right at the top is our whitewater raft trip in Montana down the beautiful Yellowstone Canyon. During our trip to Yellowstone in the early fall, we found Wild West Rafting in Gardiner, Montana–smart, trained, fully equipped with wet suits and water shoes for all who join them on their river trips. The company has been owned for years by Mike and Tracy–their staff is exceptional. Every one works hard to give those who come a first rate experience. We had a blast, felt safe, enjoyed spectacular scenery and wildlife as well as fantastic white water!
Other adventures to expect?
Our boys especially loved Yankee Jim Canyon. Two of our sons kayaked portions of the river as well as rafting with our family–they took full advantage of their independence! We stopped mid-way for a gourmet lunch on the river–healthy sandwiches (with home grown tomatoes ripened on the vine, no less), vegetables, fruits, chips and cookies. Best of all was how pleasant and encouraging Mike and Tracy were to all of us. This was, hands down, the finest Whitewater Rafting excursion we have ever been on. Hope you will find your way there soon! We are going back–
In addition to half day and full day river whitewater rafting trips, they offer Backpacking and Hiking trips as well as Yellowstone Tours, and overnight River trips which include a first class BBQ steak dinner!”
