Quality guest experience comes first! We won't overcrowd your raft and there are no hidden charges. We have over 75 years experience between our owners and over 90% of our guides return each year. We offer hiking, rafting and fishing trips in and around Glacier National Park. Our mission is to provide exceptional active travel vacations and experiences in and around Glacier National Park while preserving and protecting Glacier's unique ecosystem using the best available ecologically sound practices. We have group trips you can join or you can create a custom trip of your own. Combination trips are available. Our adventures are a half day to 8 days in length. Our main office is just west of West Glacier on US Hwy 2 near mile marker 152. Look for our highway sign and blue boats to find our 5 acre office oasis nestled just behind the trees. We have a free wi-fi computer, picnic pavilion, gift and gear store, volleyball, photo center and shaded parking.

This was our last of 7 hiking days so we decided to take it easy and just take a lazy float trip down the river. Our guide, Vince, was very personable and informative. Next time we'll go sooner and raft through the rapids. But if rapids aren't your thing or if you feel lazy like us, don't miss out on... More

Went on relaxing float with first year guide who did a great job. (Nicky I think). Easy access with just wet feet . Beautiful views of landscape but more gorgeous underwater views. Rock and water colors changed around every bend in the river. Meal at the end of float was hot, fresh and delious. Meal options were offered before leaving... More

Easy to find, incredibly welcoming office staff, and everyone appears to love their work. The bus ride to the river is entertaining but instructive, you are fitted out with life jackets and footware and safety is paramount. As a 60+ first timer I felt safe at all times and was sorry when the ride was over. Don't miss the opportunity... More

We went on this ride last Monday, July 18th. We had a perfect hot day. This was one of the highlights of our week-long vacation at GNP! We chose the 1/2 day thrill seeker raft ride which is a smaller raft so it's bouncier,splashier and in my option more fun! Our guide Tyler was awesome! If we go back again,... More

We were on a weeklong backpacking trip in Glacier National Park with a group of 8 ( dads and 4 teen sons aged 16 to 18...all Eagle scouts) and wanted to get in a 1/2 day whitewater trip. I booked us thru Glacier Guides online and couldn't have been happier. We went on the 10 AM 1/2 day trip. Since... More

We had a wonderful white water trip down the middle fork of Montana's beautiful Flathead River! Our guide Patrick was fun, informative, and reassuring. If you like excitement and beautiful scenery, don't miss this trip. The homemade salmon dinner was a perfect way to end a great afternoon

I spent 2 days with Glacier Guides...on the first day my husband, myself and my 2 -14 year old children did the day hike. It was an amazing hike. Our guides were so well prepared with all the necessities (in case you were missing something) and a nutritious and delicious lunch prepared by them. On the hike they talked about... More

We took our two grandkids on an afternoon "scenic" float trip. We had stopped in the afternoon before and made our reservation and paid for the trip but when we arrived we were told there was no record of a reservation for us. Fortunately we had our credit card receipt! The office staff is a disaster. Once we got past... More
