Uber, Lyft, or Taxi service are not very prevalent in this area quite yet. If you are flying in without transportation, we can arrange to pick you up. Walking and biking are easy methods of transportation in the area, but to unlock the full potential Glacier National Park a vehicle is suggested. Grocery stores are located in Hungry Horse and Columbia Falls, 15 or 20 minutes drive from West Glacier.
