Our guides Emily and Jeremy were fun, knowledgeable, and great stewards of our park. The 10 mile round trip to Iceberg was a very full day. We started out @ 7am from West Glacier with a 2+ hr ride in the van to East Glacier. Then the all day hike on a great trail with beautiful views. This was my... More

My wife and I took a three hour rafting trip, on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. The trip provided beautiful scenery, and was a great introduction to white water rafting for my wife. Our guide, Tyler, made the trip entertaining and informative, giving points of interest and history. The office staff was helpful, letting us know of things... More

We went on a half day raft ride. We were joined by another couple, and Christian was our guide. Although we were all novice rafters, Christian showed enthusiasm and confidence in our abilities. He was knowledgeable about the area and shared enough information, but not too much. He told us at the beginning of the trip we probably wouldn't see... More

I hiked this trail with Jeremy. Another couple had signed up but opted out on the day of the hike due to the impending weather so ended up being a private guided hike just for me. The day was probably the peak of fall season for colors - reds, oranges, yellows, beautiful foliage. We encountered rain, sleet, snow, and sunshine.... More

We did the Scenic Float Flathead River raft ride. It was the end of August 2016 and the weather was beautiful. Patrick was our guide and he was great! We had a very enjoyable time. There were 7 of us in the raft of various ages. Patrick did all the paddling and steering. We got to relax and enjoy the... More

Once we got there our guide Caden (sp) was great. Very personable, helpful and extremely informative when asked questions or just in general as we were on the trip pointing out all... More

The 4 of us took the 3 hour float down the middle fork of the flathead river. Our guide Lauren was super nice and tried to give everyone good picture ops. All the office folks and guides were very friendly. Would recommend this outfit to anyone.

This backpacking adventure was unbelievable! From beginning to end Glacier Guides was professional, helpful, accommodating and a pleasure to work with!

Signed up for 2 hikes - first was the "easy" hiking through shaded forests, meandering along clear water streams and having lunch at Lake Avalanche. The second hike "moderate" started at an elevation of 6,600 ft , gentle ascent to 400+ ft. which sounded intimidating and I found it not to be. Spectacular scenery of the rockies and peaks. The...

The company heeded to our special dietary restrictions and went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and accommodated with the appropriate food.
