Hiking – Guided wilderness day tours

Escape the crowds and go for a hike in our beautiful state and national forests.

trek montana

Wildflowers abound on a hike through the Montana wilderness.

Glacier Adventure Guides custom hiking tours take you away from the crowds of Glacier Park and into the vast surrounding wilderness. We tailor trips to your fitness level and schedule. Guests will explore the trails of the Flathead Range and Kootenai National Forest, pristine areas many other visitors never see.

Pick huckleberries, see wildflowers and wildlife and take a dip in an alpine lake on one of our tours! We also offer day tours to Webb and McGuire lookout towers in the peaks of the nearby ranges.

For those seeking something less committing, we offer day hikes on Columbia Mountain and Glacier View mountain, which are closer to Columbia Falls.

ITINERARY:

  • Day trips: Meet at the Glacier Adventure Guides office at 9 a.m., where we will drive to the trail head. Full or half day of hiking, return to Columbia Falls in the evening.

While small, it’s a prime destination for skiing, hiking and camping, with enough amenities to keep you more than comfortable.
