Great Northern Whitewater Resort in West Glacier, Montana

At Great Northern Whitewater Resort, located just 1 mile from the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park, you can enjoy a complete Montana experience. Stay in our beautiful log cabins, spend time on the river whitewater rafting or fly fishing and even host your wedding or family reunion with breathtaking views of the mountains as your backdrop. Our resort provides a perfect base for exploring beautiful Glacier National Park. The high mountain peaks of Montana's Glacier Country accumulate large amounts of snow each winter, which supply an abundance of water for the three forks of the Flathead River. Every spring folks from around the world begin to arrive around May, to enjoy the mountains, valleys and rivers, eager to test their skill and to challenge the whitewater of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Choose from exciting whitewater experience, a relaxing scenic float or a delicious river meal trip! Whichever trip you choose, you will come off the river feeling de-stressed and refreshed! If you prefer fishing to rafting, then you will enjoy Northwest Montana. The glacial fed rivers are some of the finest fly-fishing rivers in Montana and provide a genuine western experience. The crystal clear waters of these rivers are home to several species of trophy fish including: Westslope Cutthroat Trout Brown Trout Rainbow Trout Cutthroat Trout

    Great Northern Whitewater Resort General Policies
    Day Trip Packing List We want you to have a great time while rafting with Great Northern Resort and be comfortable as you join us on the river. "What to wear" is a frequently asked question and will depend upon river and weather conditions. The weather during the summer can vary from the 30's (usually in the evening) to the 100's. One saying around here, "If you don't like the weather wait a few minutes and it just might change." We suggest that you bring a fleece jacket or a warm wool sweater just in case it gets cold. We can provide you with rain suits or splash and fleece jackets for those chilly or wet days. For a minimal fee we also rent wetsuits and booties. All river trips depart from our Great Northern Resort office. We are located 1 mile SW of the west gate of Glacier National Park on US Highway 2. Look for the Red Caboose! We supply Type V Approved lifejackets, complete rainsuits for adults and children, professional guides on every trip, delicious meals on specified trips and round-trip transportation from our parking area. People always ask, "Will I get wet?" If you are going on a whitewater trip the answer is absolutely YES! Our rafts are self-baling boats - this means that no matter what kind of trip you are on your feet will get wet. If you don't have water shoes, sandals or shoes that you don' t mind getting wet - you can rent our wetsuits booties for $2.50 for half day or $5.00 for the full day. What to Wear: • Bathing suit or a light shirt • Shorts, capris • Cap, hat or visor • Sunglasses with retainer • Sunscreen • Shoes or sandals are MANDATORY - they must have a strap around the ankle • NO FLIP FLOPS For cooler weather: • Fleece jacket • Fleece or wool socks • Rain jacket or pants • Gloves • Insulating long underwear Additional items to bring: • Water - something to drink • Waterproof camera • snacks • dry clothes, shoes & towel for after the trip What NOT to bring: • expensive jewelery • non-waterproof cameras • car keys (leave these in the office with our staff) • anything you don't want to lose on the river Our store sells chums (retainers for your glasses), t-shirts, sweatshirts, sunscreen,waterproof cameras, snacks and drinks. All guests must sign a liability and assumption of risk waiver form. Although every precaution is taken to safeguard you and your belongings, river trips by their very nature involve a certain amount of risk. Great Northern Whitewater, Inc. and its personnel shall assume no responsibility whatsoever for injuries, damages, losses or delays to persons or properties. See you on the RIVER!
