The difference in these fees is set forth in the table below.

  • Before shuttle can occur, you fill out and sign our Rental – Shuttle agreement.
  • Before shuttle can occur, you supply us with your current vehicle insurance card. This can be done via e-mail to info@glacierguides.com

HIKING SHUTTLES IN GLACIER NATIONAL PARK

Are you looking for hiking shuttles in Glacier National Park? The Park offers a free shuttle on the Going to the Sun Road from July 1 through Labor Day. Glacier Park, Inc., operates a hiker shuttle on the East Side, servicing the East Glacier, Two Medicine, and St. Mary areas. Xanterra/Glacier National Park Lodges offers a similar service, aimed at Many Glacier hikers. Otherwise, there are no authorized shuttles within the park, and due to NPS regulations, we are not able to assist you with hiking shuttles. That being said, transportation is included with all of our Glacier National Park hiking, backpacking, and biking tours.
