  • 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.

    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!

    Thank you to Glacier Guides, and more specifically my guide Jeremy for making my 6 day backpacking trip through Glacier such an amazing experience. Jeremy was knowledgeable, patient, prepared, an excellent cook, and a pretty cool dude. Would definitely recommend Glacier Guides to anyone visiting Glacier NP.

    We had a wonderful stay at the guest house-wish it could’ve been longer! The house was clean and comfortable. We even got to enjoy watching deer each evening from the front patio. It is a perfect house for multiple families, especially nice to have the whole downstairs for those with younger children. Great place!
