Included in the nation's Wild and Scenic River System, the Flathead River system features vast forests, mountain streams, and several endangered species. There are guided white water rafting trips held on the lake, and visitors and residents of Alaska love the unique experience. The river is divided into three sections. The North Fork offers great views, crystal clear water, and abundant wildlife. You will have an opportunity to see osprey, bald eagles, moose, grizzlies, elk, and deer in this area. The Middle Fork area of the river is considered the recreation section. The spring and early summer are ideal times to whitewater raft, and there are often Class III and Class IV rapids. Later in the summer the rapids calm to Class II and III. There is plenty of fishing in this area featuring cutthroat trout, lake and rainbow trout, and whitefish. The Upper Midle Fork is the wilderness area and is partially combined with Glacier National Park. The river runs about 50 miles through this area through lush forest and glacial valley areas. Parts of the river run through Canada and Montana. If you want a whitewater rafting adventure and you are interested in taking in the sights and sounds of Alaska's countryside, book a rafting trip on teh Flathead River.
