Historic lodges and vintage buses drop you at nature’s doorstep on this hiking tour in Montana’s majestic Rocky Mountains.
Cool breezes and even cooler views pass through the open roof of your sporty Red Jammer bus as it rounds a hairpin curve towards Logan Pass. Alighting at the summit, you stride with your guide into the heart of Montana’s Rockies. Lacy white beargrass floats cloudlike atop tall stalks, and ribbed green slopes plunge into the U-shaped glacial valley below. Trading gazes with a mountain goat on the cliffs above, you break into a smile and realize you’re living in a primeval world few are privileged to know. Staying each night at historic lodges, with hiking trails right out your back door, you’ve got a front-row perspective on Glacier’s mountains, lakes, and wildlife on this Montana hiking trip. So embrace the moment. The trail ahead curves enticingly round another bend, and you’re off, into the high country.
- Ascend the peaks and cliffs of the Continental Divide as you cruise the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road in one of the park’s classic Red Buses.
- Learn from passionate and knowledgeable naturalist guides, as they bring Glacier National Park’s impressive geological history to life.
- Traverse alpine slopes through a profusion of colorful wildflowers and grasses, all beneath the impressive face of Mt. Wilbur.
