Glacier National Park’s Going-to-the Sun Road is one of the most spectacular drives in the world. It promises sensational mountain scenery and the opportunity to view wildlife up close. You won’t be disappointed!

Our 65-minute PARK APPROVED audio tour is not a mile-by-mile guide; it can be listened to anywhere. But since the majority of Glacier’s visitors drive the thrilling Going-to-the Sun Road, many of the scenic features visible along that route will be described. The 50-mile trans-mountain highway follows the banks of glacial lakes, passes through sloping forests of deep emerald green, skirts sheer cliff walls with gentle waterfalls and dazzling wildflowers, before ascending to its summit – the windswept alpine meadows at Logan Pass (elevation 6646 ft.)

While you drive, you’ll hear from our impressive group of knowledgeable Park Rangers and the Chief of the Blackfeet Nation. They’ll explain the geological forces that created the park’s jagged peaks and glacier-carved hanging valleys. You’ll hear about life zones, and why vegetation changes as you go up in elevation. You’ll hear about forest fires, about fragile plant communities, about the park’s diverse bird and wildlife populations. And you’ll hear about grizzly bears – their behavior, their struggles and the dilemma their presence causes in a national park. You’ll also hear stories about Glacier’s rich cultural history and about those who influenced its development.

Professionally narrated and filled with music and nature sounds, this tour is as entertaining as it is educational
