A beautiful, challenging bike trip from Glacier to Yellowstone

Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks are two of the most iconic and beautiful natural places in the United States. On this point-to-point camping tour, you’ll have the chance to experience both – and everything in between. This is the most challenging trip that we offer. It includes two of Montana’s most iconic rides.  The Glacier to Yellowstone trip satisfies those looking for a challenge, big miles and fantastic support from our staff. We’re based in Montana, and we welcome this chance to show off our “backyard”. With fully supported bikes rides, delicious chef-prepared meals, and incredible riding, the Glacier to Yellowstone cycling tour is a trip you’ll never forget!

The Route

This is the most challenging trip that we offer. The ride starts in West Glacier and finishes in Red Lodge. In one week, we’ll cross the Continental Divide, pedal over Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park, then parallel the Rocky Mountain Front before heading south to  Yellowstone and Beartooth Pass Highway. Going-to-the-Sun Road is a must-do ride in itself – with breathtaking views of U-shaped valleys, mountain lakes, rivers, glaciers, and one of the most complete ecosystems in the world. The first day’s riding is epic, but don’t worry – the rest of the trip has incredible rides with rolling hills, views of the Rocky Mountains, and overnights in small Montana towns.  We decided that doing one bucket list ride was not enough for this trip, so we added the Beartooth Pass.  This ride starts in Montana and crosses into Wyoming, climbing many hair-pin turns to the summit at 10,947′, before circling back into Montana.  You will get spectacular views of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, home to 25 peaks over 12,000′ in height.  The trip finishes in the town of Red Lodge for some real small-town Montana fun.

The Food

Our camping trips are in a class of their own, and the food is no exception. Just because we’re sleeping in tents doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy chef-prepared gourmet meals. Our chefs pride themselves on serving high-quality, nutritious food under the Big Sky. In Montana, we source as much local food as possible. This means we’re shopping for produce at farmers markets and working directly with a farm in the Flathead Valley that provides us with dairy. All of our breads and pastries are baked fresh at Le Petit Outre in Missoula. And to top off each day, we have a plethora of ice cold beer from Missoula’s  Big Sky Brewing Company.
