Whitewater Rafting

Adventure Missoula is the original outfitter of whitewater rafting through the famed Alberton Gorge. Our raft shop is located right at the river put in (39 Juniper Lane, Alberton MT 59820) with private parking so our customers only experience one shuttle back to our parking lot. Our experienced staff will provide a fun and safe experience for people of all ages! Rafting the Alberton Gorge section on the Clark Fork River is considered to be the best family friendly whitewater rafting in the state and world-class due to diverse scenery.

“What an amazing experience for a group of first timers! We had an 8 year old, 10 year old and 13 year old and all three had an absolute blast. The guides were more than accommodating and made the entire experience so enjoyable. Can’t say enough good things about this place. We even got to get out of the boats and jumped off of a cliff into the river. A++++ 10/10” -Addy Gonzalez, 2019
