Historic Red Bus Tours in Glacier National Park

Red Bus Tours are the perfect way to enjoy Glacier National Park. Most of the red buses are restored originals that have been on tour since the 1930’s. The guides are seasoned Park veterans who are here because they love the Park and enjoy sharing it with visitors. 

Red Bus tours depart from both the east and west sides of the park and take you along the famous Going-To-The-Sun Road. All tours are round trip, departing from and returning to the same location. Red bus tours will even pick you up from our Lodges. You may catch your tour from the doorstep of Glacier Park Lodge, or a few steps from Apgar Village Lodge, West Glacier VillageMotel Lake McDonald and St. Mary Village.

There are a variety of tours available varying in duration from 2.5-9.5 hours allowing you to customize your red bus adventure.

Current rates and reservations are for the 2018 season only. 2019 rates are subject to change.


  • On each unique tour, adventure awaits as a Red Bus picks you up at your preselected origin and welcomes you onboard the same way the bus drivers have done for over 90 years with the famous "roll call" 
  • Once aboard the bus, roll the unique canvas top back to reveal a commanding view of the best scenery in the Park
  • Your driver will fill you full of Park history and knowledge from a perspective you won’t find on any other tour in Glacier
