July 07, 2023

Once you've recentered and reconnected with yourself, prepare for an exhilarating river rafting adventure that promises to leave you splashed, soaked, and grinning from ear to ear. It's important to dress appropriately for this water-based excursion, avoiding cotton attire that tends to retain cold when wet. Consider the weather conditions and opt for suitable attire that ensures warmth and comfort throughout the journey. Most outfitters provide wet suits, particularly during the cooler months, and may even require them for your safety and enjoyment on the lively Gallatin River.

For the adventure enthusiasts seeking an adrenaline rush, embrace the thrills of the lower Gallatin's rougher rapids. If you're looking for a specific experience, don't hesitate to express your desire to conquer the renowned "mad mile." Brace yourself for an exhilarating ride, holding on tight as you navigate the swirling currents, all while marveling at the awe-inspiring beauty that surrounds you. You may even get a bit of a history lesson along the way, adding a touch of educational enrichment to your outdoor escapade.

For those seeking a more serene yet equally enjoyable river rafting experience, we recommend exploring the upper segment of the Gallatin River. This section provides a perfect balance between tranquility and excitement, with rapids that offer a thrilling adventure without the intensity of the lower portion.

By opting for the upper Gallatin, you'll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of the river's surroundings at a gentler pace. As you navigate the pristine waters, you'll encounter rapids that are still exhilarating but more suitable for those seeking a milder adventure. This segment of the river allows you to appreciate the stunning natural landscapes and soak in the peaceful ambiance, creating a truly memorable and serene experience.

After an exhilarating rafting adventure, treat yourself to a well-deserved relaxation session at Rainbow Ranch Lodge's outdoor Infiniti hot tub. Nestled in the heart of nature, this serene oasis offers the perfect respite to unwind and rejuvenate your body and mind.

After, treat yourself and your loved ones to a private dining experience in our exquisite wine cellar. Immerse yourself in the intimate atmosphere, where exceptional cuisine, fine wines, and the company of your loved ones come together to create a truly unforgettable dining experience. The combination of exquisite flavors, elegant surroundings, and attentive service will leave a lasting impression and provide a cherished memory of your time at Rainbow Ranch Lodge.

Delight your taste buds with our Spanish-style grilled octopus paella, a tantalizing dish that combines tender octopus, shrimp, scallops, fragrant saffron-infused rice, and a medley of delectable flavors. Each bite is a culinary adventure, transporting you to the coastal shores of Spain.

If you're in the mood for a classic favorite, try our succulent Steak Frites. Sink your teeth into a perfectly grilled steak, cooked to your preferred level of doneness, accompanied by a generous serving of golden and crispy shoestring fries. It's a timeless combination that never fails to satisfy.

End the evening on a mesmerizing note by indulging in the breathtaking beauty of the night sky at Rainbow Ranch Lodge. Step out onto our expansive lawn, lay back, and immerse yourself in a captivating star-gazing experience like no other.
