Join us for this special edition Glacier National Park bike tour and glamping vacation with our friends at Under Canvas.  

Have you ever wanted to try glamping? What better place to do it than Big Sky Country! Glacier National Park in northwest Montana is a breathtaking wilderness area. Its snow-capped peaks, wildlife, and stunning scenery make it one of Mother Nature's most treasured possessions. Take a ride on the awe-inspiring Going-to-the-Sun Road and listen to the echo of Bird Woman Falls. You'll hike one of the park's iconic trails for an awe-inspiring experience. End your day by relaxing by the campfire under a sky full of stars, before retiring for the night to your luxury tent. You’ll then head to the charming town of Whitefish to stay at a stunning lodge by the shore of Whitefish Lake. Explore the area on two wheels, taking in its lush farmlands and magnificent lake. Don't wait any longer to visit this wild country and witness the park's 25 glaciers - pack your favorite camp shirt and your coziest pajamas and embark on an adventure as vast as the wilderness itself.

What Guests are Saying
Trek Travel group swims in Lake McDonald

We got back last week from a Trek Travel Under Canvas - Glacier trip. It was the best planned and executed vacation we ever had. Everything was thought of ahead of time. Our guides were great team leaders, and we felt like one big happy family. The food, stay, weather, equipment,... all were amazing! None of us wanted to get back to the real world after this awesome week.

Trek Travel group gathered for a photo in Glacier National Park

Trek Travel's Glacier Under Canvas bike tour was amazing, from the Under Canvas tents, to the rides, to the dining, and the camaraderie. I dread going on vacation because of all the planning. The only thing I had to plan for was what I needed to bring in my suitcase. Everything else was taken care of. The rides were incredible. The guides were second to none. I can't wait to go on another trip.

Two cyclists ride 'Going to the Sun' Road together in Glacier National Park

This was a wonderful trip that really catered to a wide range of interests and biking experience. The biking was challenging, but the availability of ebikes and different routes made it feel accessible to all. The scenery was incredible, and the guides did a great job taking care of the group. I would recommend this trip to anyone!

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:

  • 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.
  • Under Canvas is located on the historic Northern Pacific railway line which is still used today.  Please be advised that you will hear train noise but Under Canvas does provide earplugs if you need.
