Healthcare Workers | Whitewater Kayaking

The Blackfoot River winds its way through the heart of western Montana and provides some of the best stretches of water to learn how to whitewater kayak in the country! Get immersed in the beauty of Big Sky Country and experience the magic of First Descents all while kayaking with our friends and guides at Tarkio River Outfitters! In the evenings, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy delicious homemade meals at Cliffs Ranch, a 2,000-acre property surrounded by mountains, canyons, wetlands, open range, and, of course, the Blackfoot River.

Gorgeous surroundings, exciting adventures, and your new First Descents community– what could be better!
