Short History

For over 3 decades, we have provided on-demand passenger transportation in Northeast Montana. Today we provide reserved transportation in Montana, Canada and the surrounding states.

We operate out of Glacier Park International Airport (FCA). GPIA is located in the middle of Flathead Valley (Kalispell).

Rolling Stock

While we operate a couple of smaller vans and 4-wheel drive vehicles, generally we would be considered a Large Van or Small Bus transportation company.

Rental Vans

Glacier Van Rental has a small fleet of medium priced larger vans.


Our main focus in the winter, is providing transportation to Whitefish Mountain Resort and the resorts in and around Fernie, British Columbia.


As winter turns into summer, skiers morph into backpackers. Ski areas become national parks and wilderness areas. Glacier Charters also adapts with the seasons, providing transportation to these areas.

We provide transportation between GPIA (FCA) and the following locations:

United States Locations

  • West Glacier
  • Apgas
  • Lake McDonald Lodge
  • East Glacier Park Lodge
  • Many Glacier

Canada Locations

  • Waterton Lakes National Park
  • Bob Marshall Wilderness
  • Most Wilderness Outfitters and lodges

Special Events

In addition to our standard airport transport, we provide custom transportation for special events, weddings, and bachelor(ette) free-for-alls, etc.
