Glacier National Park Vacation Planner

After 35+ years in West Glacier, our website has become a Glacier National Park vacation planner. Here, you’ll find exhaustive checklists, FAQs, a resource packed website, and hundreds of helpful blog posts. Planning your Glacier National Park vacation should be almost as much as fun as the trip itself!

Why Choose Us to Help Plan Your Glacier National Park Adventures?

In 1983, Glacier Guides and Montana Raft was founded with a mission of providing exceptional active travel vacations and experiences in and around Glacier National Park, while preserving and protecting Glacier’s unique ecosystem using the best available ecologically sound practices. Glacier Guides, Inc., is authorized to provide guided hiking within Glacier National Park. Since 1983, we’ve been the exclusive backpacking concessionaire, too. Our team of guides and support staff has hundreds of years of collective experiences in and around Glacier National Park. What we like most is sharing our knowledge with our guests.

In addition to hiking and backpacking within Glacier National Park, we love to take our guests whitewater rafting on the park’s southern border rivers. If whitewater is too much adrenaline for your style, scenic floating is what you’re looking for. Want to go fishing? We do that, too.

If you’re here in the spring or the fall – Glacier’s secret seasons – we are authorized by the park service to take you on a guided biking tour of the Going to the Sun Road, when it is closed to vehicle traffic. If you’d rather do a self-guided tour in the park, we rent biking, camping, and river equipment. As a highly eco-conscious company, we are also proud to offer green lodging just outside of Glacier National Park, too.

If you have questions about anything in our Glacier National Park vacation planner, we are happy top help. Just give us a call at 406-387-5555 or shoot us an email to

As we like to say, you won’t know if you don’t go!
