Our specialty at Montana River Guides. We’re the Gorge’s leading outfitter with a riverside shop and headquarters, professional guides and gear running trips every day all summer. The Gorge is the premium whitewater run in Montana with rollicking Class II, III and IV rapids and absolutely stunning canyon scenery. In between rapids you and your guests will enjoy the spectacular surroundings and watch for eagles, osprey, kingfishers, moose, deer, bear and mountain lions. The Gorge is a great family float. Younger kids (ages 6 and up) and older folks can ride in bigger rafts for a milder float while people who want a wilder ride will go in smaller paddle rafts. After running legendary rapids like cliffside, Tumbleweed, and Fang, guests can swim, relax and soak up the sun and scenery.
The Clark Fork River’s Alberton Gorge is our specialty, it’s our backyard, our home river, and, not coincidentally, home to some of Montana’s greatest whitewater and river canyon scenery. If you’re staying near Coeur d’Lane or Missoula, come on out for a river adventure!
