‘There is a long standing history of horseback riding in and around Glacier Park. In fact, the first Park visitors arrived via the Great Northern Railroad and then spent days, and sometimes even weeks, touring the Park staying along the way at tent camps or backcountry chalets that were set approximately one day’s horseback ride apart from each other.

Swan Mountain Outfitters is honored to be carrying on a nearly century long tradition of trail riding in and around Glacier National Park. We don’t think there could be a better way to experience Glacier, so we invite you, your family and your friends to come and join us on a horseback adventure through this unspoiled and awe-inspiring national treasure.

We offer a variety of horseback services including:

The only trail rides inside Glacier Park and now in West Glacier!
Overnight horseback trips from our West Glacier Corral
Our Cowboy Cookout Ride – 3 hours of riding with a steak dinner
Full day and multi-day saddle paddle packages
Customized Glacier Park drop camp trips
Packing services into Glacier’s backcountry
Packing services to guests of Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet
Our most popular offering is our trail ride where experienced wranglers guide you on horseback tours ranging from one hour to a full day in length. We offer these trail rides from four stunning locations:

Apgar Corral – near the main entrance on the west side
Lake McDonald Corral – across the road from Lake McDonald Lodge
Many Glacier Corral – across from Many Glacier Hotel on the east side
West Glacier Corral – behind the Glacier Rawhide Trading Post, about 2 miles from the West Entrance to Glacier National Park
We can accommodate riders of all skill levels. The horses are gentle and our staff is friendly and ready to meet you. Let us help you make your Glacier vacation an experience to remember for years to come!’
