Are you planning to follow the same trails Lewis & Clark
traveled two hundred years ago through
the Upper Missouri River National Monument?

Come, enjoy the wondrous scenery, and relive the fascinating history of America's most famous expedition. We offer the opportunity to experience and explore 149 miles of rugged, unspoiled and beautiful river country that has changed very little since Lewis and Clark first gazed upon it. Float and wander through the beautiful White Cliffs, and see what inspired Captain Lewis to write so romantically about them. Stand on Decision Point, the place Lewis and Clark stood and pondered over which river was best to follow.

Be lulled to sleep at night by the soothing sound of soft breezes drifting through cottonwood trees, interrupted only by the occasional call of an owl, or a far-off coyote. See deer, elk and big-horned sheep grazing on the rugged hillsides. Observe petroglyphs and other reminders of the Native American Tribes that once inhabited the area. Listen around the campfire, as the guides tell the history of Lewis and Clark, cattle rustlers, homesteaders, steamboats, and the mountain men who came into the country.

When you plan your float trips, let STARWEST ADVENTURES be a part of it. We offer full packages to service your needs. For our Guided Float Tour clients, we offer our unique Canoe Catamaran set-up, for a comfortable and enjoyable way to tour the river.

Two and 3-day tours are offered through various sections of the Wild & Scenic. We have a 3-day/2 night Guided Tour through the WHITE CLIFFS Section of the river. This includes many sites and the opportunity to do some off-river hiking. There is a Horseback Riding Option on this tour as well. In addition a 3-day/2 night Guided Tour through the BADLANDS Section of the river is available. This floats through very wild country which includes the Missouri Breaks area. There is less off-river hiking on this tour, but you see more wildlife, including mountain sheep.

We offer a complete tour of the whole 149 river miles of the Wild & Scenic River. This is our ENTIRE 149 Tour. It takes 7 days/6 nights to complete. It is not for the faint of heart. This ENTIRE 149 Tour is only offered to groups of 8 or more people. See our Guided Float Trips section for more details on all three of these tours.

We offer Group Canoe Rentals with 16' and 17' canoes available.  We have royalex, Mad Rivers, Wenonah's, Old Town and aluminum Michi Crafts as well.

We offer STARWEST ADVENTURES Shuttle Service to both our canoe rental and non canoe rental customers.

We accept Cash, Money Orders, and personal checks.
