Idaho - Montana Day Trips 

If you're looking for a day of Montana rafting fun, you’ll love the whitewater river rafting thrills of the Clark Fork River. This big volume, big ride river has loads of roller coaster waves and exciting Class II-III (intermediate) rapids including Boateater, Fang, Cliffside and Tumbleweed. Ideal for family Montana rafting, between the rapids you can jump in for a swim in calm stretches or sit back and relax in your raft and just enjoy the spectacular scenery only found in Montana. Rafting here is the best way to experience the beautiful back country of the region.
