Tarkio, Montana

Whitewater Kayaking

Known for its towering purple cliffs, abundant wildlife, warm water, and friendly rapids, the Clark Fork River is one of the best places to learn how to kayak in the world. Tarkio River Lodge has a firm place in the history of First Descents and the kayaking community. There is a little bit of magic at Tarkio and we’ll bet that once you see this place for the first time, you won’t want to leave.

There will be four separate weeks of Tarkio Kayaking programs in 2019.

  • Week 1: July 28th – August 3rd
  • Week 2: August 4th – 10th
  • Week 3: August 11th – 17th
  • Week 4: August 18th – 24th
