Immerse yourself in the snow-capped peaks, endless wildlife, and great scenic rides on this bike tour through Glacier National Park.

Visit one of Mother Nature's most prized possessions, crammed end-to-end with snow-capped peaks, blue skies, moose, bears, mountain goats, evergreens and inspiration. As you ride the smooth pavement of Going-to-the-Sun Road, your soundtrack will include the echo of Bird Woman Falls and the vast silences of the hinterland. And as you turn in for the evening, your lullaby will be a sea of stars, crystal clear and glittering. We'll also spend a few days in the vibrant western town of Whitefish, riding through the Flathead Valley, surrounded by protected lands, and nestled square in the middle of nowhere. What are you waiting for? There's no better time to visit this wild and wonderful wilderness!

The entire experience is exceptional. Support on the road was great and as always as a guest the only thing you need to think about is turning the pedals, enjoying good company and drinking and eating.

Lake McDonald swim in Glacier National Park

By far the BEST trip I have taken! I am an average level biker and felt challenged enough on this trip but not so much that I didn't enjoy myself. If you are considering going, don't hesitate!

Additional Details

Know Before You Go!

We want you to be fully prepared for your cycling vacation of a lifetime. This involves making sure that you choose the appropriate trip for you and that every aspect of your experience is flawless. Each Trek Travel trip is unique to ensure maximum enjoyment every time.

Your Trip Need to Knows:

  • While the natural beauty is incredible, services on the East side of Glacier National Park are limited. We have reserved the best possible accommodations, but please expect simple, rustic rooms in historic buildings as is common in our National Parks.
  • Dining options are also limited for the first couple of days of the trip. Expect simple menus and limited options for those who follow vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or other restricted diets.
  • Cell service is very limited in and around Glacier National Park. Your guides will be equipped with walkie talkies and a satellite communication device to enable them to communicate and provide effective support even when cell service is lacking.
  • Hiking in Glacier: Please bring layers for our hike in Glacier as the weather can change quickly. We will be starting at the top of Logan Pass, so it’s often chilly in the morning and warm in the afternoon. Bring comfortable walking shoes and a rain jacket as precipitation is common.
