  • My husband and I signed up for a half day rafting trip with Glacier Rafting Company on a trip to Glacier National Park. We got to be the lead 2 in our raft, and it was so much fun! The water is extremely cold (melted glaciers...of course) and refreshing! There is no experience required. You get trained in your raft by your amazing guide!
  • We go on these raft trips every year for a work trip with glacier raft company. They are very accommodating and their raft guides are a blast to be out on the water with. They're very knowledgeable and safe. I look forward to seeing them again this summer.
  • Had an awesome experience. Our guide AP (Andrew) was the best ! Great time. He was good with having a little one on board. Our granddaughter Sophia 5 1/2 yr old enjoyed it and was not scared. AP had a great sense of humor and knowledge of the area and it's past. Request AP as your guide.
  • The Howe Ridge Fire shut down The Going-To-The-Sun-Road from Apgar Village to Logan Pass, so we had to find other things to entertain us. I had always wanted to white water raft. So I convinced the rest of my family to do it. We had a great time. The 2 guides we interacted with - Batch and Emily where knowledgeable and personable. The entire team seemed to work well together to get us out on the water as efficiently as possible. We showed up as recommended 30 min. before departure. Considering 3 bus loads of people processed through and out in that time, they did a great job of moving us quickly and explaining all that we needed to know. Be prepared for the rush of people at check in. Float time varies greatly depending on the speed of the water. Expect 45-60 min in early spring and closer to 2.5 -3 hours late summer/early fall. You are heading into nature, be flexible, expect the unexpected, and you will have a great time!
  • Great tour guides and a beautiful tour. We have young children and the Scenic tour option was a great fit as it is mostly a float down a very tame (and scenic) part of the middle fork. Would have given 5-stars but it seems they've recently removed the mid-tour stop over which was a great way to break up the raft trip for the kids.
