Located in Western Montana, Glacier Country is a place you have to see to believe. Home to spectacular destinations like the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Flathead Lake and Glacier National Park, this region of Montana is special.
Known as the Crown of the Continent, Glacier National Park anchors the region with more than 1 million acres of glacial-carved terrain, cascading 121-meter waterfalls, striking rock faces, teal-colored streams and lakes, 1,100+ kilometers of hiking trails and the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The iconic 80-kilometer-road is a motorcycle enthusiast’s dream and takes travelers through the heart of the park, cresting the Continental Divide at 2,025 meters. While private vehicles and motorcycles can be driven in the park, guided tours are one of the best ways to experience Glacier National Park, with options that include red bus tours, interpretive boat cruises, guided hikes, horseback trail rides and the chance to learn about the park from the perspective of the Blackfeet Tribe.
Home to wide-open spaces, Western Montana is prime motorcycle-riding country, with well-maintained highways, scenic byways and endless backroads that travel along some of the most stunning countryside in the continental United States. Plus, motorcycle rentals are available in Missoula, making it easy to set out and ride roads that weave in and out of lush valleys and along mountainsides.
