In June 2011 our family of four took a wonderful vacation to Glacier National Park and the highlight event, the Four Day Saddle & Paddle, exceeded our expectations! The team of Wild River Adventures and Swan Mountain Outfitters did an outstanding job of accommodating our family's every need and taking the time to address all our concerns prior to departure. Bob said it several times: "this is your trip", and Wild River Adventures and Swan Mountain Outfitters takes that message to heart. The guides from both organizations were outstanding and the cooking was some of the best outdoor meals we have experienced. The scenery in both the Flathead National Forest and Middle Fork of the Flathead River is awesome; we highly recommend this trip with Wild River Adventures!

To all at Wild River,
The Ravenelles had a fantastic trip (June 23-24) with Dave and Mike. They were great guides who quickly gained our confidence in their rafting abilities. We most appreciate them supporting our continuation of the trip on Friday with the waters high. Not an event we will forget. They were also terrific hosts and took care of us very well all along the trip. Not a single complaint. Great service from all the staff. We will highly recommend WR to anyone heading out there.
Have a great summer!
Just this past June 16th. Our family, a total of five persons, took a full day raft trip with Wild River in West Glacier. The trip was a blast. We all had a great time. Our guide, Ryan, was excellent. Among us was my wife, a non swimmer. It took some convincing to get her to join us on the raft trip. Ryan engaged her and helped her to feel safe and at ease. She enjoyed the trip just like the rest of us. We had a fun and safe trip because Ryan was so experienced and helpful and nice and fun. Rafting is new activity that we will consider whenever we have the chance. After we were picked up at the end of the raft trip by a van, and we were delivered back to Wild River, we found that one of our cameras was gone. Ryan checked the wet suits but there was no luck. Then Ryan, on his own initiative, went to the van that we rode back in and there it was, our pictures were found! Thank you Ryan! Thank you Wild River.
We will be sending cards to the team who took us down the river, but I want to waste no time in giving you heartfelt thanks for your fine organization and superb care of us. I was especially impressed with how you graciously adapted to some very demanding parents and also to your great care of us on the final day. The students felt really happy about the trip as did I and my two chaperones. Your guides were sensitive, caring and all exhibited qualities of leadership that was a really fine model for the children.
Dear Wild River,
"Thanks for a wonderful trip! Adam, Amy and Evan were excellent guides. Our group had a blast. My son (Danny) and I will never forget and will definitely be back with the entire family. The memories you gave us will last a lifetime."
Take care, Jack M., Pierre, SD
"We had one of the best experiences of our life on
your river raft trips! My husband and I plus my
bother and sister-in-law never laughed so much in one
afternoon. I still have our keepsake pic in the frame
on our mantle." Angie S. Omaha, Nebraska
We went on an all day trip 7/12 with Ryan. My family had a great time. Ryan knew his stuff, the food was very good and of course the scenary was spectacular. I also purchased 2 of the photos taken.
Just wanted to let you know I found everything well done. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be there to do the same once again!
Keep up the good work!
Bob: I have to tell you. My family just got back from a 2 week vacation in Montana and the Canadian Rockies. We spent 1 day rafting with Wild River and 1 morning fishing. We had an INCREDIBLE experience! It was the highlight of the trip! You run a great organization...everyone was helpful, courteous and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. If we ever get back there, we will be sure to book another trip! Scott L
I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a wonderful time I had on the Scenic Float I took Wednesday, August 3rd. The weather was perfect and Tom and Hal did a fantastic job of making sure their guests were enjoying themselves. The lemon ade and cookies were a wonderful surprise.
My mother and I also participated in the dinner with the "wild rafters" down by the river. The food was delicous-again Tom and Hal out did themselves. I think I speak for all the members of my family that participated in rafting that day: Fun was had by all! Keep up the good work. Thanks Again and Have A Nice Day! Diane from MN
We visited River Wild on July 15 with our Youth Church Group that was on a mission Trip to Montana. Since no one in our group had been Whitewater rafting before, there was a few in our group of 45 kids and adults that were a little nervous about the white water rafting trip. We had a span of about 13 years old up to fifty. The group voted 100 % to do the white water trip before we left for Montana based upon the information that you had sent in advance and your web site. Your staff was excellent at providing information and insight.
The results of our trip were simply "GREAT." The group had a fabulous time. There will be many memories for this group for years to come. Your staff was professional, fun, and personable. I would recommend your company to anyone who is a novice at Whitewater rafting.
Your staff was also very helpful and friendly in making the reservations for us and supplying us with information.
Thanks for the fun and for the memories.

In my work with Outward Bound, I have reviewed countless operation and risk management plans for adventure companies throughout the nation.

My wife, daughter and I took a rafting trip with your company. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide made it a lot of fun, even for inexperienced rafters like us. Everyone we met was very friendly. When we arrived home we asked our daughter what she enjoyed most about our Montana trip. She immediately said, "whitewater rafting". Thanks for helping to make our Montana trip a memorable one. If we are ever back in your area, we will certainly raft with you again.

Our guide was so very patient with our two children, especially with our youngest. I am recommending your company to my passengers as well as my employees at the airline where I work. Thank you again for the pleasant experience.

I was impressed with the people from your company and highly pleased with our experience. The river is beautiful, and I hope to be on it again someday. I'll definitely call on Wild River Adventures again.

Our overnight trip on the North Fork was incredible. We saw the northern lights, heard the howling of a lone wolf, caught countless fish, and ate like royalty. Considering we did not have to pay for motel and restaurants, our trip with you was an excellent value as well. We have already recommended you to our friends and family.
