I had a really pleasant stay at Glacier Guides Lodge. The room was super clean and comfortable and the service was terrific. Transportation for hikes was provided, which was really nice. Would stay there again.Read More Reviews
Our guide Scott did a great job prepping and leading the tour, which consisted of 6 guests (including myself). The description of the tour and FAQ/prep materials list and itinerary that the company sent over beforehand were very accurate and super helpful! Aside from a quick hail storm, we got great weather and an extremely enjoyable three days of hiking in East Glacier crossing the Continental Divide. Scott did an excellent job of explaining to us how the backcountry permitting system works and from that explanation I was amazed at the amount of work that each guide must put into every single tour. They are truly responsible for everything while you’re out, so having an experienced guide with the right temperament and attitude are a must—especially if things go wrong. I’m glad to say everything went as planned! I was able to spot several animals and some breathtaking scenery alongside good conversation within our group of former strangers. Great job, Scott and Glacier Guides!Read More Reviews
Group Trip Testimonial
Our group went on a 4 day, 3 night backpacking trip. Jordan, our guide, made sure we knew about the foliage, animals, how to stay safe, were well fed and that we stayed hydrated. It truly went perfect, we will be visiting again.Read More Reviews
We booked half day fly fishing afternoon trip on float boat. My husband fly fishes several times a year. I did not fly fish at all until we booked this trip. We were blessed to have our fly fishing guide be Jamie Burkholder. He was FANTASTIC!!!! I caught fish after he very calmly taught me his simple techniques for fly fishing. I would recommend him every time if your looking for a smart and nice guide that definitely knows what he’s doing.Read More Reviews
