Raft, Hike, Fish, Bike, Stay: Choose Us!

Why Choose us Glacier Guides

  • Guide Experience, Safety, Knowledge and Service. Over 90 percent of the Glacier Guides and Montana Raft Company’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.

  • Interpretation and Preservation Focus. We were chosen to be the exclusive hiking guide service of Glacier National Park in 1983. Our focus on interpretation and preservation is unequalled. 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. This award is given by Montana State University in conjunction with the Montana Governor’s office.

  • We won’t overstuff the boat! Glacier Guides and Montana Raft is the only raft company in West Glacier that puts no more than 9 guests on our exclusive Sport Trips. Other companies pack in up to 14 people. What that means for you is that everybody gets to paddle on the Sport trip! (We have other options available, too, if you’d rather not paddle.)

  • No Hidden Charges. Glacier Guides and Montana Raft does not charge extra for wetsuits or booties, which are mandatory at certain times of the year.

  • Great Facilities. Glacier Guides and Montana Raft offers a lovely forested property with nice restrooms, changing rooms, a volleyball court, shaded parking, and picnic facilities. Free Wi-Fi, too!

  • Equipment Quality. Our rafting department uses top quality Hyside boats, NRS equipment, and other support gear. Our hiking equipment includes Big Agnes, Black Diamond, Sierra Designs, Osprey, MSR, Katadyn and Therma-Rest. We are also Glacier National Park’s camping equipment concession partner.

  • Food for Thought. We think it’s important to fuel your body with tasty and nutritious food. That’s why we make most of our food with local and organic (whenever possible) products. We cater to all dietary considerations. Many of our guided trips include meals – you can also purchase delicious trail lunches, with advance notice. Just call us at 406-387-555.

    A few of the Montana companies that we are working with are: * Lifeline Cheese, Victor * Great Northern Pasta, Whitefish * Half Moon Eggs, Columbia Falls * Mountain View Garden, Kalispell * Two Bear Farm, Whitefish * Perfect Cut Meats, Columbia Falls * Wheat Montana, Kalispell * Montana Huckleberry Haven, Kalispell

  • We Do Not Use Billboards! We believe in protecting the scenic entrance to Glacier National Park. We maintain a forested buffer on our 7 acre property along the entrance to Glacier.
