Glacier National Park Hiking

Glacier National Park hiking is an incredible experience for all ages and abilities. Glacier Guides was chosen as the exclusive backpacking guide service in Glacier National Park by the National Park Service in 1983. We are experts on Glacier National Park hiking! With 732 miles of trails to choose from, we can take you on the perfect hike for your group’s ability and age range.

We offer a wide range of adventure travel options, from day hikes to backpacking and more! Want to go on a multi day hike and see both sides of the park without going backpacking? Check out our van supported Glacier Challenge trip! Want to go backpacking without carrying a heavy pack? Hire one of our friendly porters. Want to go backpacking but prefer the roof of a historic, rustic chalet over your head? The Ultimate 6 Day Chalet Tour might be for you. Prefer to plan a custom adventure? We love those. Give us a call at 1-800-521-7238.

Our guides are focused on safety and ecological responsibility in Glacier National Park hiking. They are highly trained and hold multiple backcountry certifications such as Wilderness First Aid, National Park Service Bear Management, and Leave No Trace backcountry ethics. You will receive an education about Glacier National Park’s flora, fauna, geology, history, and more while in the care of our guides — who are also highly entertaining! Expect absolutely delicious meals while on the trail. Our in house kitchen staff prides itself in preparing gourmet backcountry meals, and we source locally and organically whenever possible. Take it from us: there’s not much better in life than watching the sun rise over a glaciated peak while sipping a steaming cup of organic, locally roasted coffee.

Pro Tip

Rest and relax after your hiking or backpacking adventure on the river! A full day or overnight rafting trip is the perfect conclusion to your Glacier National Park hiking adventure. Plus, you’ll then be able to engage in lively debate about whether Glacier is prettier from the trail or from the river.

“Katie was perfect for our group! My parents were quite nervous and she was very nurturing which eased their fears. i think they also appreciated the safety education and the description of what was coming up on our trip down. Thanks for the fun experience!”

“Greetings! Just wanted to comment on a GREAT rafting experience we had with your company this week. From the first call I made to you until we finished back at your office, I want to say EVERYONE there was just GREAT! Very Friendly, efficient, and confident that a land-lover from ND could make the trip! I expecially want to thank DEAN for his patient instruction, his wealth of information about the river and the park, and his FUN attitude! What a nice guy! Thanks again for a great time and I will most certainly recommend your company to anyone that might be going to Glacier!”
Barb and Tom P., Half Day Whitewater
“Made me want to choose Glacier Guides because staff was generous with their time. What to wear? What to bring? What to expect? All of these were answered fully and (we discoverd) honestly. Even after all the changes I made, I still felt wanted.
I know it was not in your control, but weather was perfect. Our guide, Amy, was friendly yet professional – we felt at ease and safe in her hands. Glacier Guides are happy, friendly people who love what they do always make a great experience for customers…move to Chicago, so that we can enjoy your service more often!!”

“Emily was amazing. She was fun and personable and very knowledgeable on the area, not just the water! I have rafted with another group and would definitely recommend you over them. You made it a fun and memorable experience!”
