Rafting & Riverboarding near Missoula

North America’s Number 1 Riverboarding Trip; The Alberton Gorge

Riverboarding is Montana’s best summer adventure. Missoula rafting is known to be fantastic and some of the best in Montana. What people don’t know is the number one river boarding destination and outfitter in North America is right in Missoula’s back yard on the Alberton Gorge. Montana River Guides has been guiding river board trips on the Gorge for over 20 years. The Alberton Gorge’s deep channels and fun whitewater is perfect Riverboarder location-the waves are big and the surfing is always in.

If you have tried Montana Rafting or Whitewater Kayaking and want more action, a Riverboarding trip is the ticket. Missoula Montana has a lot going on but it also has one of the world’s best surf waves downtown and one of the world’s best river boarding destinations thirty minutes away. Instead of being on top of the water in a boat, you are right in the power of the current. We provide a wetsuit, helmet, life jacket, booties, fins and a board.  After getting geared up we head to the river for a safety talk, orientation and practice session. You’ll learn to look at the river and understand where the current is the strongest and why.  Teamwork is essential on a river board trip, so we use the buddy system learn how to stay together during the trip.

While on a river board trip you become part of the river. Guides will give you pointers on how to read water and use the current to your advantage. You’ll learn how to ferry across current, change angles quickly and maneuver to avoid obstacles. Like an otter, you’ll use eddies and eddy lines to stop and rest or slow down to adjust spacing with the team. River boarders can blast through waves and river features that would flip rafts. The poser of the river is exhilarating. One of our guests said it’s like being immersed in adrenaline.

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!
