Glacier National Park is one of the most precious resources in the country and there is no better way to view the “Jewel of the Continent” than to see the sites while horseback riding. Swan Mountain Outfitters is a one of a kind family owned business dedicated to making our guided horseback tours the highlight of your Glacier National Park vacation.
There is a long standing history of horseback riding in and around Glacier Park. In fact, the first Park visitors arrived via the Great Northern Railroad and then spent days, and sometimes even weeks, touring the Park staying along the way at tent camps or backcountry chalets that were set approximately one day’s horseback ride apart from each other.
Swan Mountain Outfitters is honored to be carrying on a nearly century long tradition of trail riding in and around Glacier National Park. We don’t think there could be a better way to experience Glacier, so we invite you, your family and your friends to come and join us on a horseback adventure through this unspoiled and awe-inspiring national treasure.
Who Are We?
We founded Glacier Guides in 1983 to provide ecologically sensitive backcountry guiding and interpretation in Glacier National Park. Back then, there were just three of us! Four years later we added rafting on our Wild and Scenic rivers. Hence: Glacier Guides and Montana Raft.
Rafting led us into fishing, and then we obtained a permit to guide on the Smith River, too. In 2010 we built Glacier Guides Lodge to give our guests an eco-friendly lodging option in West Glacier. Glacier Guides Guest House came along a few years later. Our newest move is guiding bike and e-bike tours of Glacier when the roads are closed to vehicle traffic. We thrive on change!
