The human body, unlike raisins, white wine, and the wit of Oscar Wilde, isn't meant to be dry.
$26 for Half-Day Whitewater-Rafting Adventure ($52 Value)
For three hours, rafting trips fly over the fast-paced waters of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Guides give a quick briefing, and then lead groups on floats through the chiselled rocks of John Stevens Canyon. Sprinkled across these waters, rapids with names such as "Jaws" and "Bone Crusher" create more thrills than a piggy back ride from a famous movie star.
Glacier Raft Company
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.
