The Stillwater River begins its journey high in the Beartooth-Absaroka Wilderness. Mis-named by Lewis and Clark who must have discovered one of the few quiet spots, this stunning river flows freely to the mighty Yellowstone River. The Stillwater meanders through meadows and beautiful valleys with amazing views of The Beartooth Mountains which was once home to the Crow Indians and majestic buffalo. Whitewater and Montana's highest mountain peaks abound. Watch for bear, elk, deer, moose, and other wildlife on this beautiful, wild river. We float the middle and lower Stillwater River.
The Yellowstone River is known as the King of Montana rivers. The Yellowstone River flows free of dams its entire 678-mile length. It is our nation's longest free-flowing river. This river, which the Indians knew as the Elk River, starts high in the mountains of Wyoming, flows through Yellowstone Park, Yellowstone Lake and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. It then flows east across Montana before joining the Missouri River near the Montana-Dakota border. It is rich in history with many early explorers using it as the original pathway to the wilderness. See Golden and Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons and other Montana wildlife in their natural habitat. We float a section of the scenic Yellowstone sure to satisfy the outdoor adventurer in all of us.
