Red Bus Tour of Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park


About Glacier National Park

A hiker’s paradise! The park encompasses over 700 miles of trails. With countless opportunities for backpacking and camping, five of the 13 campgrounds in Glacier National Park are along Going to the Sun Road.

Sandwiched between Two dog Flats and St. Mary’s Lake, Going-to-the- Sun Road spans just over 50 miles. You'll see views of glaciers, waterfalls, mountains, and wildlife, and more!

Red Bus Tour

Driven by knowledgeable park guides, a Red Bus Tour is a great option for visitors looking for a relaxing, informative ascent to Going to the Sun Mountain. They sell out quickly, so don't wait to book! 

Red Bus Tour

Visitors can begin their round-trip Red Bus tour from either the East or West sides of Glacier National Park. The tours are offered in various lengths from 2.5 hours to 9.5 hours.

We had many stops but never felt rushed! The ride was both relaxing & exciting! 

Landforms along Going-to-the-Sun Road

From waterfalls to campsites, named rock formations to views, this drive has it all and you get to absorb it all because you’re not the one driving! 

Activities for Kids

Kids can earn Junior Ranger badges at Glacier National Park. Stop in at one of three visitor centers for a booklet and instructions.

If you only do one tour in Montana, make it this one!
