Missoula Rafting in September & October - Montana River Guides

Missoula Rafting in September & October

Missoula rafting in September is wonderful. Montana mornings are cool and crisp in September but warm quickly as the sun comes up over the mountains and warms the valley floor. Summer crowds have gone and local wildlife emerges again along the Clark Fork River. We are still running the river almost every day but have adjusted our trip departure times and trips to dovetail with our fall weather patterns. Bears are moving along the river corridor now snacking in local huckleberry and chokecherry patches. We saw a moose grazing in Fish Creek and herds of elk are dropping down into the upper Alberton Gorge each evening for a cool drink.

Right now we are offering custom fall trips, both scenic and whitewater, on the Clark Fork River. Trips usually meet at 10:30 am and cost $79 per person. Expect to be on the river about 3-4 hours and have the river canyon to yourself. Our shoulder season trips have a four person minimum. If there are only two guests in your group, we’ll can still run the trip as long as you pay the four person trip fee. We have complimentary wetsuits and splash jackets for overcast days.

We have taken many rafting trips over the years and hands down this was one of the best ones yet!!! We took a private full day rafting tour with river side picnic and couldn’t have had a better time!! Our guide set up the best lunch spread at the waterside including fresh fruit and veggie trays, salad, sandwiches, chips/salsa, and the best homemade cookies!!! We had many stops, chances to swim, small cliff jumping, and the most beautiful scenery!!! Shout out to Amy as being the most fun guide to our crazy “Billy Goat Cyrus” group from Texas!!! Request her and you won’t be disappointed!!!
Our Montana River Guide trip down the Clark Fork was the highlight to our Montana vacation. Our guide let us paddle some while we were going thru the rapids which was an awesome experience. Weather and sun on the morning trip made for some great pictures.
We did a scenic float with our young kids. This was the absolute best thing we did our whole trip! So beautiful, so much fun. Amy was our guide and she was incredibly fun, knowledgable and kind. Cannot wait to float with them again!
There were three of us over 60 year old gals on our trip. Our guide, Jack, was outstanding. We felt safe and secure under his care the whole time while having the time of our lives. The beautiful scenery and wildlife were a bonus to the incredible river with its rapids along with calm areas to relax & enjoy the ride. Top on my list of the other incredible things we did this summer.
One of the best experience in the US was spending our Sunday with Montana River Guides! The crew was able to accommodate to over 60 of us on the YSEALI alumni tour and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our time on the river - Whitewater Rafting or Scenic Tour. Guides are 100% professionals who have fun with safety in mind. Highly recommend and must visit when you're in Montana. Thanks for the memories!
