Win a two-day rafting trip with Montana Raft Company

You guys, there are some adventures that need to be done when visiting Montana. One of them: whitewater rafting the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. In case you’re not familiar with it, the Middle Fork runs along the southern boundary of Glacier National Park and is a gorgeous teal color that’s created by glacial silt. It’s also one of the most fun destinations for whitewater rafting in Western Montana’s Glacier Country.

I realize that you may be wondering why I’m telling you about this river. The truth: I want you to raft it. You see, not only is the Middle Fork of the Flathead one of my favorite rivers in Montana, but rafting it is one of my all-time favorite activities and I want you to have the chance to experience it as well. So much so, that I collaborated with my friends at Glacier Guides and Montana Raft Company to give away a guided two-day rafting trip for two (including food, gear and a guide) on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Pretty awesome, right?

    This would be quite the adventure for a young couple from Wisconsin. We have rivers but no mountains… so no exciting rapids like you guys have! Either way, we are coming your way this July! I would take my wife Lizzy because she deserves a vacation and is the only person in the world who I would like to share an experience of a lifetime like this!

    I would bring my wife because she has fought for our family while I have suffered with Crohn’s disease for the past 9 years. I am finally in remission and we have never had a trip away like this. I have always wanted to visit Montana, and this would be a great trip to experience the beauty of this state. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’d bring my life partner and my 24 yr old daughter and her boyfriend, two of the four of us have never been to Glacier.

    I would actually gift this trip to my parents. They work so hard and spend so much time staying home taking care of the family, that they usually get left behind as my siblings and I venture out for service trips, school, and more. Their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary is next year, and this would be an amazing gift for them as they celebrate their love.

    This trip is desperately needed! I would bring my 14 year-old son. I am a brain tumor survivor and have been a single mother for the bulk of my son’s life. Last year, I married the love of my life. My son and I would finally have the complete family we have been praying for…my husband abandoned us several months ago. It has been a horrific season of loss and so devastating for us both. Montana is on my wish list for relocation, so that we can make a fresh start in a beautiful wilderness. This would give us the opportunity to visit Montana for the first time. We NEED this trip! Thanks much. Blessings.

    I would bring my awesome friend Lindsay Brown! I just moved to Montana a few months ago and am quickly falling in love with its beauty. Lindsay is such an adventurer and is opening my eyes to all the adventures I can experience in Montana! This would be awesome trip to win.

  7. Stacey Harvey

    I would bring my husband. He is my rock and is always giving so much of himself and sacrifices so much to provide for our family. We both are very much into the outdoors… Mostly camping and hiking. But we have yet to try rafting! With homeschooling three kids at home we don’t get much opportunity to get out and enjoy “us” time.

  8. Patrick Koonts

    I would bring my son on the never really done anything of this magnitude and I can’t think of a better place to create a one of a kind bond with awesome memories.I have always loved Montana but never had the opportunity to visit,it would have to be the ultimate camping trip in my opinion.

  9. Nancy D. Brown

    I’d love to go rafting on this river and I’d bring my husband because 99% of my travel (for work) is solo and this looks like fun! I’d love to share this #MontanaMoment in Glacier Country with my husband who would LOVE Montana!! Thanks for sharing this opportunity with us.

  10. Kayla Wills

    Yeah, would love to get the free trip as I am already going on a hike with the group. I would bring my husband and/or my son. We will be celebrating our 29th anniversary. It is our first trip to Glacier! My son is going to go backcountry camping while we are there.
