About Glacier Guides and Montana Raft
Glacier Guides and Montana Raft is an eco-conscious company based in West Glacier, Montana, offering whitewater rafting, scenic floating, hiking, biking, backpacking, fishing, equipment sales and rentals, and lodging, in and around Glacier National Park. We also operate the quiet, cozy Glacier Guides Lodge at the west entrance to Glacier National Park, and have a charming Guest House available for family escapes. We provide exceptional, interpretive adventures in the Glacier National Park area, while always protecting Glacier’s unique ecosystem. Our focus on safety and preservation is unequaled, and underlined by the fact that Glacier Guides was chosen as the exclusive backpacking guide service in Glacier National Park, by the National Park Service, from 1983 to present. #RaftHikeFishBikeStay #YouWontKnowIfYouDontGo

Hi! We sure do sell bear spray, at the lowest cost the manufacturer will allow. If you'd prefer to rent bear spray, our friends at Glacier Outfitters in Apgar offer that service. Thanks for asking!
