Glacier and Waterton Hiking Tour

Hike in Glacier and Waterton National Parks

Send your senses soaring and your spirits flying! Uncover an untamed wilderness full of snow-clad peaks, roaring waterfalls, and glacier-carved valleys in the International Peace Park. Boasting over 800 miles of footpaths, Glacier is one of the world's premier hiking destinations. Designed for the experienced hiker, this tour offers challenging options for the more intrepid adventurer.

Day 1: Big Mountain-Lake McDonald

From Whitefish we shuttle to an introductory hike on Big Mountain, with sweeping views of the Park. Among giant cedars, spend the evening relaxing in Lake McDonald Lodge.

Day 2: Going-to-the-Sun Highway-Garden Wall

Morning starts by crossing Glacier's renowned Going-to-the-Sun Road and hiking the Highline Trail beneath the Garden Wall, a classic alpine route straddling the Continental Divide. We spend the afternoon traveling to Canada and the charming hamlet of Waterton.

Days 3-4: Waterton Lakes

Our two-day medley of hikes in Waterton features wildflowers, waterfall-crowned valleys, and surreal landscapes of alpine tundra as we hike from Cameron Lake to Carthew Pass. The next day it's on to beautiful Rowe Lake with magnificent views of Lineham Ridge.

Days 5-6: Many Glacier Valley

Conclude with two days of naturalist-led hikes in Many Glacier. Enjoy a close-up look at the ice caves, crevasses and moraines of Grinnell Glacier. Trek to Ptarmigan Falls and the stunning cirque containing Iceberg Lake. After a farewell picnic, we return to Whitefish.
