The rafters hear it before they see it. The steadily increasing roars emanating from down the river can only mean one thing: whitewater. As their raft rounds a bend, it plunges headfirst into a Class III rapid. Frothy spumes shower the group, but they remain focused, paddle in unison, and conquer nature's natural roller coaster.
Since 1976, Glacier Raft Company has created adrenalin-pumping experiences like these for more than 500,000 customers. Using the Middle Fork and Flathead River as their playground, guides lead rafting adventures that fuse the thrills of fast rapids with natural beauty of areas such as John Stevens Canyon. Though rafting is their focus, the outdoors outfit also leads other activities such as horseback riding and hiking trips. During fishing excursions, anglers cast for rainbow trout and radical bartenders harvest ice cubes from glaciers. The company also welcomes guests for extended stays in one of their classic log cabins.
From its base at the Stanford Resort, nestled in the Kootenay Rockies, Mountain High Adventures? team of first-aid- and swift-water-rescue-trained guides embarks on aquatic voyages. Adventurers perched atop inflatable kayaks or whitewater rafts brave the rapid-studded waters of the Raging Elk Canyon and Bull River armed with nothing more than a paddle and a team of mermaid bodyguards. During scenic floats, passengers don lifejackets to explore calmer waters without their boats, relaxing at swimming holes, taking jaunts along a trail walk, or cliff-jumping off a canyon wall. For a long-term adventure, youngsters ages 8 and older can take to the water for five days at the time during summer adventure camps, whose activities range from rafting and river surfing to mountain biking and ziplining.
