Our Whitewater Dinner Trip begins with 4 miles of relatively calm water that allows time for your guide to instruct you on boat safety and proper paddling technique as you paddle your way down the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Once you enter the John Stevens Canyon you'll be ready for the exciting rapids ahead. After you've made your way through most of the rapids you will have worked up an appetite and will be ready for the hearty meal your guide will prepare for you. Majestic mountain scenery surrounds you as you enjoy your evening meal on the banks of the river. After dinner there is still 1 mile of river to float and beautiful scenery to take-in.

Our full-day trip is a great way to see more of Glacier National Park. This adventure begins with a stunning scenic float and then after a riverside lunch comes the true whitewater experience as you enter the John Stevens Canyon and paddle through exciting whitewater rapids.

Your guides have checked the weather and will have appropriate gear for you to handle the conditions in comfort. About half an hour later you will take a short ride up the river to an access site called Cascadilla.

This trip is wonderful because you get to float through Nyack Flats, a large area where the majority of the river flows through large gravel basins providing an incredibly diverse ecosystem. As you travel through the flats, the views into the backcountry of Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness are phenomenal! This is also a great area to see all sorts of wildlife.

Lunchtime consists of your fearless whitewater guide/river chef preparing a top-notch river spread. We offer steak, chicken, buffalo burgers, black bean burgers, or a pasta for your main course. Make sure to tell the reservation staff which you prefer. Accompanying your protein of choice is an appetizer, assortment of salads and a dessert. It would be great to list all of the items now, but they are whatever is fresh and in season in our chef's own organic garden.

After lunch comes the Whitewater!

Once you get to John Stevens Canyon the river picks up speed and your adventure really begins. You'll need all of that practice from upstream to execute the commands in the whitewater. With rapids like Bonecrusher, Jaws and the Notch (to name a few) your crew is sure to have an exciting time.

Once you see the Old Bridge, (The original route in to Glacier National Park) you are nearly there. There's about a mile left to the take out, followed by a short ride back to the Great Northern Resort where the Railway Cafe is sure to be cooking and the ice cream is nice and cold on a hot summer's day. Make sure to check out the photos of your run through Bonecrusher in our main Chalet!
