Whitewater Rafting near Yellowstone in Montana

Rafting a wild Montana river will be the highlight of your family vacation in the Yellowstone National Park area.

This year the Yellowstone Raft Company will turn 37! Come celebrate with us!

The Yellowstone Raft Company pioneered white water rafting on the Yellowstone River back in 1978 and are the only company that is fully permitted by both the National Park Service and the National Forest Service to run trips on the Yellowstone River. To this day we continue to provide safe, fun, exciting, and entertaining trips year after year. We are proud of our professional guides, superior training, experience, and commitment to white water excellence.

The number one comment we get from our guests is that their rafting trip on the Yellowstone River was the highlight of their trip to Yellowstone National Park and Gardiner, Montana. Don't miss this opportunity to experience this spectacular river with one of our half or full day whitewater or scenic trips. Or check out our combo trips that combine rafting and hiking or horseback riding. And if you're looking for a little more adventure... our kayaking trips are a great way to get to know the river and challenge yourself! Go where your adventure takes you!

We run raft trips daily between May 1st and September 15th.


The Yellowstone River has maintained it's above average flows for this year all the way till the end of the year. The river is still flowing and free of ice due to a warmer than average start to the winter. We have seen lots of big horn sheep along the banks this fall and it has become evident why the local tribes used to call the Yellowstone River "Elk River". We are looking forward to next season and in the meantime we will be keeping track of any snowfall, gearing up, and mentally preparing for the best summer ever! Come join us!

We are taking reservations for next summer and it is never too early to reserve your spot! Please feel free to book online, call our office, or email to make a reservation over the next few months.
