Glacier Guides and Montana Raft

At Glacier Guides and Montana Raft, our mission is to provide 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 and Montana Raft has offered Glacier National Park adventures since 1983! We are an eco-conscious company based in West Glacier. Our specialties include guided rafting, hiking, biking, and fishing adventures. Don’t miss our Granite Park Chalet tours. In addition, we offer equipment sales and rentals. We also operate the Glacier Guides Lodge and Guest House. Anglers, be sure to ask about our Five Day Smith River Exploration!

Let our experienced guides show you Glacier’s secrets. Join a scheduled half, full, or multi-day trip, or let us customize a private Glacier adventure just for you. As we like to say at Glacier Guides and Montana Raft: you won’t know if you don’t go!

Raft. Hike. Fish. Bike.

Glacier Guides and Montana Raft offers half day, full day, family friendly, overnight, and custom rafting trips. Glacier’s turquoise border rivers offer exciting whitewater adventures or relaxing scenic floats! Don’t miss our Dinner options – our kitchen staff is the best in West Glacier.

Glacier Guides was chosen by the National Park Service in 1983 as Glacier’s exclusive backpacking guide service. Join us for a half, full, or multiple day hiking or backpacking experience. Scheduled trips leave daily, or customize an adventure for your group.

As a hiking concession partner for Glacier, we have everything you need for a comfortable hiking, backpacking, or camping trip. As a U.S. Forest Service permittee, we are authorized to shuttle vehicles along the Flathead River. We rent rafts, fire pans, groovers, and more!

Whether you’re a novice or a pro yourself, you’ll never forget fly fishing Glacier National Park’s stunning, trout filled, Wild and Scenic border rivers. Let our professional fishing guides hone your skill set on a half, full, or multi-day fishing trip. You can also catch fish with us on Montana’s Smith River.

Glacier Guides offers guided bicycle tours on the iconic Going to the Sun Road before it is open to vehicle traffic. We usually leave from the Avalanche are and bike as far as plowing operations permit – hopefully all the way to Logan Pass. Don’t miss this bucket list shoulder season adventure! We rent bikes and carriers, too.
