Hiking – Guided wilderness day tours

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


Wildflowers abound on a hike through the Montana

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.

Met our guide Devin at Montana Coffee Traders in Whitefish. Traveled about an hour to the Kootenai Mountains and, with his help, hiked up Deep Mountain. Wow … wonderful trek. Devin is a great outdoorsman and super guide. Best part of the trip (no surprise) was the view from the summit… All told our hike was 11.5 miles leading to a full and memorable day. –Jim, via tripadvisor.com

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.


  • 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.
