Scenic Driving Tours

Take a driving cruise through the Flathead and Glacier National Park area with an interpretive guide.

For those interested in seeing our area in winter without the exertion of walking on snow, these tours are for you. Glacier Adventure Guides now offers guided, interpretive driving tours that will take you down roads less traveled.

I would recommend their services whether it is just for a day of snowshoeing or for a backcountry excursion. They also do trips in the other seasons as well. They were pleasant and easy to deal with from the first phone call to when they dropped us off. –Shannon, via

Columbia Falls is located in northwest Montana and is known as “The Gateway to Glacier.”

The town is also a short drive from the North Fork of the Flathead River, and is surrounded by the Whitefish, Livingston and Swan mountain ranges and several national and state forests. While small, it’s a prime destination for skiing, hiking and camping, with enough amenities to keep you more than comfortable.

Drive times to Columbia Falls:

Glacier International Airport (FCA): 15 min.
Whitefish Train Depot: 20 min.
Whitefish Mtn. Resort: 35 min.

Hotels: We encourage you to check out the historic Izaak Walton Inn, located in beautiful Essex, Montana. Tucked away in the forest, the Inn offers trails right from the hotel, a full restaurant and bar, hot tub and private suites.
