Of all the scenic river trips in the Northwest, the Clark Fork is the best and one of our favorites. A quiet, beautiful canyon with wildlife and Western Montana scenery. Both of these trips meet 2 hours east of Coeur d’Alene. The Clark Fork River is home to eagles, osprey, elk, moose and deer. We love to float this section first thing in the morning or in the afternoon to early evening for better wildlife viewing. It has a few fun splashes but is perfect for a relaxing family trip with great places to swim, run your feet in the sand, and soak up the stunning Montana scenery along the way.

What to Pack: Sunscreen, Sunglasses, Hat/Visor, Nylon Windbreaker, Strapped Sandals/Shoes, Binoculars, Quick-dry Shorts, Fleece Outerwear, Snacks and Reusable Water Bottle.

We recommend synthetic material clothing and/or swimsuit for the river.

Bring any cotton clothing for changing into after the day of rafting and leave in your car!

The Tarkio Canyon is a mild stretch of water providing a relaxing float on the Clark Fork River for one of the greatest scenic river trips in the Northwest. Take it in and kick back while soaking up the scenery and rock formations. Your experienced, friendly guide will share the colorful heritage of our early settlements, mining claims and the history of the river. You will view abundant wildlife and it is a very beautiful and relaxing trip. There are a few ripply rapids but none that would cause one to fall out of the boat. This is a great float good for folks that want to avoid whitewater.

Either the half day or full day scenic river rafting trip is a great opportunity to enjoy the beauty of this part of Western Montana. The Tarkio Canyon is calm stretch of the Clark Fork River. It is a perfect gentle river float trip. We pass through tall canyon walls where we are fortunate enough to see eagles, beavers, and ospreys. You will pass by mining camps and Quarts Creek Tributary. 

Coeur d’Alene departures please let us know that you are headed from the west. We can meet you at the river take out (where you will get out at the end of your trip) to park your car, saving you time and gas!
