The Glacier Guides and Montana Raft Difference
Experience, Knowledge & Safety
Over 90 percent of the Glacier Guides and Montana Raft’s staff returns every season. Rafting guides are trained in Swiftwater Rescue in addition to all guides certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR and NPS Bear Management Training.
We were chosen as Glacier National Park’s exclusive hiking guide service in 1983. We teach and practice Leave No Trace on all of our trips. Since 2013, we are “EcoStar Award” winners in recognition of our pollution prevention efforts.
Keep it Fresh & Local
We are tied and committed to our local community and do as much local purchasing as possible. We think it’s important to fuel your body with organic, local, tasty and nutritious food. We can also cater to all dietary restrictions.

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
This was the perfect lodge before our backcountry adventure in Glacier National Park! The location was perfect for our needs. Bed and pillows were super comfortable and Don accommodated our early departure by having all the breakfast things ready an hour earlier. And it was a block from a great meal at the Belton Chalet for dinner.Read More Reviews
The BEST outfit that we’ve ever been out with! The company promotes giving great service and provides their team with the support and necessary tools to give their customers A WOW experience! The food they provide is amazing. Thanks Judith, Katie, Taylor and Jeff for making our 6 day backpacking trip a blast…and the river rafting!Read More Reviews
Holy cow this place is awesome! Right from the start, everyone was so nice and friendly and fun! Our family headed down the river for the scenic float with our three littles (9, 7 & 3) and my FIL and MIL (who cannot swim and is terrified of water!). We had the best time and our guide Nicolette was super knowledgeable about the river and the area. After the float we stayed for dinner and, let me just tell you, it blew my expectations out of the water! I was expecting to get our main course with a couple sides but they had that PLUS crazy yummy appetizers AND dessert too! I cannot recommend Montana Raft enough! If you have time, do the dinner option. You will not be disappointed!!Read More Reviews
Used Glacier Guides/Montana Raft Company for a bike trip up the Going to the Sun road in West Glacier and a white water rafting trip on the Flathead River. Jordan was our guide for the former, Blaine for the latter, and both were really awesome. Would definitely use them again for future hikes, biking, and rafting.Read More Reviews
