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 ride starts in West Glacier and finishes in Red Lodge. In one week, we’ll cross the Continental Divide over Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier, then parallel the Rocky Mountain Front before heading South to Yellowstone and Beartooth Pass Highway. Going-to-the-Sun 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 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 doing one bucket list ride was not enough, so we added Beartooth Pass. The ride starts in Montana and enters Wyoming then climbs through many hairpin turns to the summit at 10,947 ft with spectacular views of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness which is home to 25 peaks over 12,000′ in height. The trip finishes in the small town of Red Lodge, Montana.
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.
Our camping trips are in a class of their own, but we make no exception on the food. Just because we’re sleeping in tents doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy chef-prepared gourmet meals. The Glacier to Yellowstone trip includes breakfast, lunch and dinner – and everything in between. Our chefs pride themselves on serving high-quality, nutritious food under the Big Sky. In Montana, we source as much food as possible locally. This means we’re shopping for produce at farmers markets and working with a farm in the Flathead Valley that provides us with our dairy, and all our breads and pastries are baked fresh at Le Petit Outre in Missoula. To top it off, we have copious amounts of ice-cold Big Sky Brewing Co. beer to finish each day.
