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.
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.
