Missouri River Guided Canoe Trips

For those looking for the quintessential Montana river voyage, our variety of guided “glamping” trips in the Missouri River Breaks offer the ultimate experience. A guided trip takes the guesswork out of how to enjoy the river at its finest in the limited time you may have in your schedule. Missouri River Outfitters experienced guides know the best places to camp, the best places to hike, and handle all of the camp logistics for you. Even better, they are skilled at telling the history of the river and they know the flora, fauna, and the stunning geology in which you’ll be constantly immersed. Our gourmet menu on the trip features local beef, Northwest salmon, vegetarian and vegan alternatives, fresh produce, and home-baked desserts. Best of all, our guides do all of the cooking (and clean-up!!), giving you more time to enjoy the scenery and the solitude. It is hard to beat chilled chardonnay or a cold, local Montana craft-brewed beer while lounging at river’s edge while relishing one of the unparalleled breath-taking sunsets, or a cup of fresh-brewed, French-pressed coffee while the sun rises over the prairie mist.
