Train to Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park Tours

The "Crown of the Continent," Glacier National Park is an American classic that left early conservationists so enthralled that they lobbied for it to be preserved forever. In 1910, they got their wish as President Taft declared Glacier America's 10th national park. Located in Montana's Big Sky Country, this treasured land covers over one million acres of theatrical terrain and features sparkling rivers, dramatic mountains and thundering waterfalls. A true hallmark of the park, though, is its namesake: glaciers. There are 26 of these massive sheets of ice throughout the park.

In the beginning, people traveled on the Great Northern Railway to seek adventure in Glacier National Park's mountains and tranquility in its valleys and lakes. Today, travelers seek these same thrills aboard Amtrak's Empire Builder, which travels directly to the park. Our tour packages make use of this direct access, taking guests on beautiful routes from cities like Chicago or Seattle and into the vast expanses of Montana before stationing mere steps from the entrance of Glacier National Park. While in the park, enjoy comfortable lodge accommodations and a variety of self-guided activities and ranger-led excursions that highlight the immense beauty of these protected lands.

Take the train to Glacier National Park for the best summer vacation. Take a guided hike to learn about the ecosystem or embark on a boat trip across crystal clear streams and lakes. Animal lovers can ride through the meadows on horseback or join guided tours to spot wildlife, such as grizzly bears, mountain goats, bighorn sheep and bald eagles. A quintessential experience of any visit to the park is a Red Jammer bus tour, crossing the Continental Divide on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, one of America's most famous roadways.

Glacier National Park is also a popular destination in many national park rail tours, which include touring Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks as well as awe-inspiring sites of America's West.

America's Great National Parks
6/Feb

“We did a 13 day tour of America's Great National Park in 2019 and were extremely happy with everything about the tour. Great hotel accommodation, great food, great tour guide, nice bus, excellent hotel check in/out and baggage handling. I can not cite one instance where we thought VBR put profits over the comfort of travelers. I have to especially mention the tour guide - very knowledgable and went out of his way in making us all comfortable. We have booked a tour this summer to Alaska.

Empire Builder with Glacier National Park - Chicago to Seattle

Nancy
5 stars
“Vacation by Rail made it very easy to book our trip, and answered all our pre-trip questions quickly. The train staff was polite and helpful, and facilitated boarding and debarking the train. Additionally, the service and qualify of food in the dining car were impressive. We very much enjoyed watching the countryside from our cabin. However, the train tracks themselves have not been well-maintained, making for a rocky riding experience. Sadly, St. Mary's Lodge was experiencing staffing shortages and turmoil, making the dining experience there fairly unenjoyable. The park itself was spectacular. Very glad we made the trip.
