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.

“The train trip from Chicago to Whitefish, MT was a difficult ride. Staying in the coach seats was really uncomfortable. I believe that there was a defect in the seat I was in; a bent hard wire on the right side was irritating my leg. My husband had a VERY difficult time sleeping, or getting any rest in those seats. I would have considered the bedroom or the other option, but I believed the prices to be OUTRAGEOUS! In December, I was quoted a price over $1K for ONE NIGHT! In May, the price had increased to OVER THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!! Had we flown to Whitefish, or somewhere close by, I think the overall trip would have been much better. I realize that your name is VACATIONS BY RAIL, however, much of the time on the train was during darkness, so not much scenery was available.

Empire Builder with Glacier National Park - Chicago to Seattle

“The ride was as comfortable as it could be for the space confinement of a train. We got the roomette which was well worth the upgrade over coach. All meals were included and you can lay down to sleep. There is a private cabin available for quite a bit more money where there is a sink and private toilet/shower. It’s nice to let someone else do the driving while you just sit and look at the scenery or rest.

“A fun, bucket-list itinerary capably led by the indefatiguable Beth. She was knowledgeable, a multimedia wizard on the motorcoach, and gave a deep background to the cultural implications and considerations of the sites we visited. We would take another of her trips in a heartbeat.

“We were pleasantly surprised by the rail trip: Food was excellent, sleeping in a Roomette (although a challenge) was quite nice. The rooms at both Lodges were wonderful, as were the two tours included in the itinerary (boat trip on St. Mary Lake, and Run to the Sun). Both narrators on the tours were great especially Jammie Rick. Our first car attendant, Robin was excellent, paying several visits to assure all was OK. The second, Isaac, was not as solicitous. He seemed adequate in his duties, just not as friendly. We both said we would do this type of trip again.
