Our guided kayak trip on the Madison River is a great way to experience the scenery, history, and wildlife of the local Bozeman area. With the combination of our experienced tour guides and sit on top kayaks, we ensure a trip to remember. Be on the lookout for Montana wildlife such as: fish, deer, beaver, and eagles. All possible to see as you navigate your way downstream. While experiencing this journey, our guides will share with you their knowledge on the geography and history of notable reference points. These reference points include the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1802 and the Bozeman Trail of the 1860’s. The Madison flows East of the Continental Divide and is a headwater to the great Missouri River.
