Four Day Saddle Paddle – West Glacier
(Overnight horse portion not available in 2021. Please check back for 2022 or ask about combining a full-day horseback ride with a Wild River Rafting adventure)
This trip combines an overnight horseback trip in Flathead National Forest with a two and a half day whitewater trip on the middle fork of the Flathead River. This trip is available Saturdays through Tuesdays. Check in at the West Glacier Corral at 12000 Highway 2 East, West Glacier, MT 59936 at 9:30am on Saturday for the Overnight Horseback Trip. Spend the day riding through the heart of Flathead National Forest and taking in stunning views of Glacier National Park. A hearty trail lunch will be provided. At the end of the day, Swan Mountain wranglers will escort you to an established base camp complete with tents and a cook. You’ll spend the evening, fireside, gazing at more stars than you ever thought existed. On Sunday morning, you’ll enjoy a true Montana breakfast and a leisurely ride back to the corrals in West Glacier. Another trail lunch will be provided before you check in at the Wild River Adventures office at noon and set off for the river. Each mile of this rafting trip is special with alternating stretches of whitewater and superb scenery. You will pass magnificent waterfalls, flow through cliff-walled canyons and run lots of rapids. These adventure trips include the big waves of Brown Hole Rapid (class III –IV), one of the best rapids on the Middle Fork. You’ll camp at private spots beneath shady cottonwood trees. Wild River Adventures has all the equipment to make camping out alongside the river a comfortable experience. Horseback riders on this trip must be 10 years or older. All horseback riders on this trip must be 225 pounds or less.
