Clark Fork River Rafting is a fantastic choice if you are looking to have an amazing rafting day of roller coaster waves, splash landings and pure, wet fun! The region's most popular day-trip, it's a big volume ride through rapids called Fang, Boat Eater, Tumbleweed and Cliffside!
The Alberton section of the Clark Fork is isolated from roads and runs through a deep canyon that has rose-colored cliffs. Family friendly with a minimum age of 5 (10 during high water), quite pools and warm water, a Clark Fork rafting trip will be something your family will want to make a tradition! Swimming fans also enjoy the flat-water sections that are long stretches of warm, fun water.
Trips are undertaken with 13 foot paddle rafts which enable everyone to be a part of the rafting fun. You'll learn to paddle from professionally trained guides as you navigate the Clark Fork whitewater as a team. We also have limited number of inflatable kayaks (or Daring Duckies) for the thrill seekers looking for a very intimate relationship with the water!
Clark Fork River rafting is also a great way to unwind with your club, church, business outing or other custom group looking for a new and exciting day together with nature as entertainment.

More Clark Fork River Information
The history of the Clark Fork River is as mesmerizing as the beauty of the river. It started 12,000 years ago in the depths of Glacial Lake Missoula when the mountain valleys and the Clark Fork River sank below the lake.
The depth of the lake was almost 2,000 feet, created by an ice dam that blocked the Clark Fork River outlet which is around Idaho currently. The continuous growth of the lake was triggered by a cataclysmic event which exploded the ice dam and then released the whole contents of the Glacial Lake Missoula.
The flood encompassed all the land near Montana, Washington, Oregon and Idaho up to the Columbia River before recollecting in the Pacific Ocean. The event left the story of rock, water and power. The signature of the Glacial Lake Missoula can be seen on the shores of Oregon and across the Inland Northwest. The largest river of Montana is Columbia's Clark Fork which is bigger than the Missouri in Montana and provides the best whitewater rafting.
A large portion of the Rocky Mountains in Montana is drained by the Clark Fork River. The national parks, wild areas, forests, river valleys, one third of human population in Montana, the biggest superfund complex in the country, and the waters of the Blackfoot Rivers, Flathead Lake and Rock Creek are all part of the Rocky Mountain basin.
The Alberton Gorge is very popular due to its recreational treasures (Clark Fork rafting) and the amazing scenery. This makes it a preferred destination for family trips during summer. The gorge which is situated at a distance of thirty five miles to the west of Missoula is actually a canyon section of the Clark Fork River that has Class II and Class III whitewater rapids that are a good choice for beginners and experts alike. The locals and tourists alike have a wonderful time at the Clark Fork. The seven major rapids stretching along with many smaller rapids will give you memories that last forever.
