Owner description: Celebrating all things Yellowstone, the Flying Pig Adventure Company makes planning a vacation to Yellowstone easy. One call and you can set up anything from a quick float down the river to a complete vacation that includes lodging and an awesome activity package. Our activities include White water or Scenic Rafting, Horseback Rides, Fly Fishing, Park Tours and even shopping at our Camp Store. Above all else, we are best known for our friendly staff and excellent customer service. We love sharing the adventures of the Yellowstone area with our guests...And it shows! Many years ago, the Flying Pig got its start with whitewater rafting, and that is still the premier event today. Thousands of people have enjoyed our 8 Mile, 18 Mile and Overnight Rafting Trips on the Yellowstone River. We have awesome guides and our own private river access. In addition to whitewater trips, we also offer scenic floats for those who want to sit back, relax and soak in the views. Looking for a true Montana experience at a horse ranch? The Flying Pig offers horseback rides at a beautiful privately-owned alpine ranch just a few miles above town. The fun continues inside Yellowstone Park with Park Tours and Fly Fishing. In fact, we can take you fishing in some of the best trout rivers and streams in North America. We have also expanded to a second store location at 204 Park Street in Gardiner, where we offer a full complement of camping, hiking, fishing and apparel. Looking to experience Yellowstone first hand? Want to try something new? Give us a call and we will work with you to find just the right adventure. We encourage everyone to get out there and challenge themselves by doing something they never thought they'd do....To let their Pigs Fly!

We had the most perfect day thanks to the FLYING PIG CREW. As the season has not officially started the team at the Flying Pig was under no obligation to offer their services. After being turned away by other companies we thought there was no chance. However the friendly staff could not turn down a couple of Aussie Brothers and a Married couple from Chile and Organized the White Water Rafting, Lunch and Horse Riding package. They made a few phone calls and set everything up on the spot. Resulting in THE BEST DAY EVER OF A 6 WEEK AMERICAN TRIP. THANK YOU FLYING PIG ADVENTURE COMPANY.

This was our families first experience with white water rafting. The company helped prepare us before we even got in the raft. What to do to help paddle/steer and what to do if we fell out. Obviously we were novices and our guide did a great job of making us comfortable. He was informative about the area along the trip in addition to keeping us informed on what we should be doing and what was going to be coming up next on the river (rough/slow/fast).

We had two children along who were a little fearful (ages 12 and 14) but they had a great time.

My husband and I even fell out at he roughest part and we did just fine because of the pre-trip training we had and our guides quick response. Now we have a great story to tell everyone and pictures to prove it! We love that they take pictures of you before and at a certain part on the trip. Makes for great memories.

Thanks Flying Pig!!

I took my two children on a trip to Montana to visit Yellowstone. We stayed at the Flying pig, amongst other activities we did at the flying Pig! We spent 2 days white water rafting with the Flying Pig. You couldn't ask for nicer people. Everyone we came in contact with was very very friendly, professional, and just plain fun people to be around.
I would take my family back again and stay at the Pig and do all their wonderful activities!

Thank Flying Pig for making this single moms family vacation one that the kids will remember for a lifetime!

Our group completed the overnight rafting trip and had a fabulous time. The staff and guides were excellent. The campsite and sleeping quarters were great. The staff and guides were knowledgeable of the area and gave us the insight of the area we were hoping for. This trip is a must and is for any age, young or old. We ranged from ages 30 - 62.
Thank you Flying Pig!!!

We recently took a family trip to Yellowstone, having not been there before we were not sure of the best way to see the park and we were interested in the popular attractions but also some of the less popular but still amazing sights, known by only those who live there. The Flying Pig Adventure Company gave us exactly what we were looking for……the staff was very knowledgable about the park and gave us some fabulous options based on what we indicated we wanted to see. On one of our days we signed up for the "Paddle/Saddle" with Flying Pig. I would highly recommend this…..we were able to horseback ride in the morning which was simply amazing, the views were stunning. If you don't ride very often just do the 2 hour, it's plenty of time on a horse and you will still get to see Yellowstone from a completely different view! After horseback riding they shuttled us back to Gardiner for a wonderful lunch, then in the afternoon we rafted down the Yellowstone River (paddle). This was probably the highlight of our trip, we all had a fabulous time, our guide was great. He was able to give us some of the history of Yellowstone which the kids really enjoyed. If you are going to Yellowstone I would highly recommend Flying Pig Adventure Company, we would not have had the time we did if it was not for them!!!
