Glacier Guides and Montana Raft is celebrating its 35th year of guiding Glacier National Park adventures! We are an eco-conscious company based in West Glacier, Montana, offering whitewater rafting, scenic floating, hiking, biking, backpacking, fishing, equipment sales and rentals, and lodging, in and around Glacier National Park. We also operate the quiet, cozy Glacier Guides Lodge at the west entrance to Glacier National Park, and have a charming Guest House available for family escapes.
We strive to provide exceptional, interpretive adventures in the Glacier National Park area, while always protecting Glacier’s unique ecosystem. Our focus on safety and preservation is unequaled, and underlined by the fact that Glacier Guides was chosen as the exclusive backpacking guide service in Glacier National Park, by the National Park Service, from 1983 to present.
Let our experienced guides show you Glacier’s secrets, from its pristine whitewater and scenic rafting rivers, to its 732 miles of delightful hiking trails, to its backcountry huts, Granite Park and Sperry Chalets. Join a scheduled half, full, or multi-day trip, or let us customize a private Glacier National Park adventure just for you and yours. Anglers, inquire about our Fly Fishing School and Five Day Smith River Exploration, too!
Visiting us in the spectacular shoulder seasons? Learn more about our exclusive guided, interpretive biking tours on the closed-to-vehicle-traffic portions of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, and other roads within the the park. We are located on the Gateway to Glacier Trail and rent bikes, too.
As we like to say: you won’t know if you don’t go!

Ross and Hannah made our day. We floated down for 3 hours and saw such a beautiful and tranquil side of Montana we wouldn’t have seen any other way. The stories, the facts, the bird trivia, all made it a one of a kind experience. It was awesome! Thank you!
We took a whole day white water rafting excursion with Blaine as our guide. We had a delightful day in every way. Blaine was very personable and easy to talk to. He was knowledgeable about the river and the wildlife. We saw two bald eagle and one Osprey and a possible bear sighting on our trip back on the bus.(bus driver saw the bear). We believed her. Blaine took very good care of us, starting with life jacket fitting to lunch on the river to allowing us time to swim. I highly recommend Montana Raft.
