Going-to-the-Sun Road was conceived as a way to permit visitors a glimpse of Glacier National Park’s mountainous interior without the need to travel by foot or horseback. Completed in 1932 after 11 years of work, this engineering and scenic marvel accounts for only one day of our spectacular Glacier-Waterton Loop!

From Whitefish, Montana, we’ll visit Fernie, British Columbia, then head east and crest the Continental Divide at Crowsnest Pass before rolling through Alberta prairies en route to Waterton Lakes National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the cross-border Glacier-Waterton International Peace Park features unmatched splendor.

Startpoint Info:

This tour will start and end in Whitefish, MT. Group reservations have already been made for the first day of this tour. Whitefish can be a high-demand area. If you are arriving before the first day of the tour or would like to stay on the last day of the tour, we recommend booking reservations early in the Whitefish area.

Information for eBike riders:
Because every rider, eBike, road condition, and elevation profile is different, it is ultimately up to the participant to judge best whether their battery will last through each tour day. We recommend using pedal assist in its lowest setting or off when not needed to maximize battery range. Bringing a second battery is also recommended. Remember, there is no vehicle support on our inn-to-inn trips, and you would need to carry the extra battery along with all of your other things.
