I broke my ankle hiking down from the hike to Grinnell Glacier. Thank goodness we had gone to the trouble of making reservations for a guided hike, including the two boat rides across the lakes, or I would have had to be carried back even farther! Our hiking guide came up on us after I fell and was super helpful... More

Booking the tickets is a major pain. If you don't do it 3 days in advance online you risk being shut down if you just show up that day,especially during peak months. We drove there a day early to guarantee tix for the following day. We took the boat rides across Swiftcurrent and Josephine lakes. Our guide Jolene was excellent!... More

We had so much fun on the Two Medicine boat ride. Our guide was funny and very knowledgeable. When you get to the dock you have two options. You can ride the boat right back to the dock or you can go on a short hike with your guide. We chose to go for the hike. It was mile round... More

My husband and I took the boat rides across Swiftcurrent and Josephine lakes. Our guides were excellent! They were very informative and entertaining! The boat rides across the two lakes require a short hike up and over a steep hill between the lakes. Atthe end of the 2nd boat ride we took the guided hike out to Grinnell Lake. Grinnell... More

We arrived at Many Glacier in the morning to take a boat ride on swiftcurrent lake, then Josephine Lake. We were there about 9:00 Am, and did not have reservations. We were placed on the waiting list for the 10:00 ride, and were able to get on. The ride was wonderful and the staff was very informative, narrating with lots... More

This is a must do boat tour that everyone going to Glacier National Park. It is lead by a park ranger and is very educational and entertaining. You learn about history of the park and also learn about glacier that formed the park. It is time well spent plus it is a very beautiful and enjoyable boat ride.

Wonderful ride, job well-done by staff/crew ! So glad we selected the boat ride at Many Glacier that included 2 lakes, (a short walk in between) and the option get off the boat before returning to take several hikes. Awesome views - we did the 11 a.m. ride which was perfect timing. Although the water was choppy, it was smooth... More

Please understand that only 50% of the seats are reserveable. After that you have to go to the boat dock in person starting 3 days in advance to reserve the other 50% of the tickets. And the guided hike fills up fast! Well, we had reservations for the 11am boat. We were woken up at dawn by the wind. It... More

I did 2 boat tours: Two Medicine and Many Glacier. The tours start on time and are very informative, you get lot of information about the area. The views are awesome. Some of the boat tours also offer a guided hike which is great. Out of the 2 boat tours I took, from scenery point of view, I would recommend... More
