In the morning you’ll be horseback riding with Swan Mountain Outfitters, their Glacier Division, the only horse company that is authorized to offer trail rides inside Glacier National Park. The ride is easy and lasts for 2 hours and meanders through a beautiful, diverse forest with views of lower McDonald Creek. Wildlife such as deer, moose and bear are often seen on this trail.
The ride finishes at 12:45 which gives you time to make your way back to Glacier Guides Inc/Montana Raft Company to meet us for your 1/2 day raft trip departing at 2:15. A nice bag lunch is provided at the Glacier Guides office when you check in prior to going rafting. Enjoy a *three hour long trip* on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River along the southwestern boundary of Glacier National Park. You’ll be going through John Stevens Canyon where the rapids are rated class II and III, which makes it a fun and splashy adventure. Following the simple commands of the guide, you will actually become part of the crew that maneuver your craft. Be sure to wear clothes you won’t mind getting wet. Wetsuits are available for no additional cost. The minimum age depends on the river flow. In June the minimum age is 8. From mid July onward the minimum age is 7.Maximum weight for horseback ride: 250 pounds.
