From the first call I made to you until we finished back at your office, I want to say EVERYONE there was just GREAT! Very Friendly, efficient, and confident that a land-lover from ND could make the trip! I expecially want to thank DEAN for his patient instruction, his wealth of information about the river and the park, and his FUN attitude! What a nice guy!

“Made me want to choose Glacier Guides because staff was generous with their time. What to wear? What to bring? What to expect? All of these were answered fully and (we discoverd) honestly. Even after all the changes I made, I still felt wanted.
I know it was not in your control, but weather was perfect. Our guide, Amy, was friendly yet professional – we felt at ease and safe in her hands. Glacier Guides are happy, friendly people who love what they do always make a great experience for customers…move to Chicago, so that we can enjoy your service more often!!”

Safety First

Safety is always the #1 priority. Guides undergo training in river rescue techniques, first aid, and more. Many guides return year after year. If conditions call for wetsuits and river shoes, or if you would prefer to wear splash gear, it is always available at no extra cost. Helmets are mandatory in the whitewater section of the river.
