Scenic and Whitewater Rafting Adventures
Adventure Missoula is the original outfitter of whitewater rafting through the famed Alberton Gorge which began in 1976. Our experienced staff will provide a fun and safe experience for people of all ages! Rafting the Clark Fork is considered to be the best whitewater rafting in the state and the #1 thing to do while visiting Missoula. We offer exciting day-long rafting trips filled with class II and III whitewater rapids, and our guided fly fishing trips on the Blackfoot, Bitterroot, and Clark Fork Rivers can be enjoyed for a full day in combination with rafting. Adventure Missoula specializes in scenic and whitewater rafting Missoula in small high end sport rafts. Our customers come back because we hire great personalities, local river kids that know the area, and staff that are passionate about what they do. We also offer a Half Day Scenic Trip down the beautiful Tarkio Canyon section of the Clark Fork. Participants will experience local watersheds, breathtaking scenery, wildlife, and gentle floats by local guides. On an exciting side, one can also experience the wild, free flowing water, and adrenaline rush in the canyon features on each of these rivers. WHY GO WITH US?

Spin and Fly Fishing Adventures
Adventure Missoula offers full day and half day fishing trips on our three rivers surrounding the Missoula Valley: the Clark Fork, Blackfoot, and Bitterroot Rivers. We employ drift boats or rafts outfitted to navigate these rivers. We track the river flows, follow the hatches, and understand how the wild and unpredictable weather affects our rivers and streams. These rivers are noted for Rainbow, Cutthroat, Brown and Bull trout, while neighboring forest banks provide views of deer, elk, beaver, osprey, eagles, kingfisher, geese, and the occasional moose. Whether you are an avid fly fisherman or a novice seeking a new way to spend time in the great outdoors, our guides will suit your needs.
