ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Hello all. Just joined this group. My husband and I and another couple are doing this trip on August 17-August 22. Our group includes one serious birder/hiker and three casual stoller/gawkers. We will arrive at Lake McDonald one night early. It was impossible to get the pre-night rooms several months ago but I kept trying and the rooms we needed eventually opened up there, so I cancelled our reservation at a hotel in Kalispell.

Hi. I will be coming into Kalispell the 19th and would like to share a ride to Motel Lake McDonald on the 20th in time for the start of the program! I'm at the Travel Lodge. At the end of the program, I'll be going back to Kalispell, and stay at the Red Lion after checkout time from Glacier. Would that makeit possible to share transportation with anyone one/both ways? Looking forward to seeing you but not the Polar Vortex! Nancy McCartney

I am attending the July 20 - 25 program, flying into Kalispell 7/20 arriving 3:28pm and am interested in sharing a ride to the hotel.

Marilyn Scherer Jul 05, 2014 at 06:48 PM

I plan to arr. Kallispell from Denver 3 Aug. 1:30 p.m. and would love to share the ride to Motel Lake McDonald via van/ rental car, whatever. Also for the return for a 2: p.m. flight on the 8th. Please contact me.

If anyone else is arriving at Kalispell Sunday morning, July 6th (around 10 am) on the flight from Denver, my friend Fran and I have reserved the shuttle/van to get us to our lodging in Glacier NP. Is anyone interested in sharing the ride with us?
Nancy Hadaway Jul 03, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Which company did you use? The one listed by Road Scholar referred me to Glacier Charters
Kathleen Weber Jul 03, 2014 at 10:49 PM

Yes, that's the one I called, the one listed in our booklet. When are you arriving?
Nancy Hadaway Jul 04, 2014 at 10:49 PM

I will be arriving at 1:30 pm.
Kathleen Weber Jul 05, 2014 at 07:52 AM

We are really spread out -- I see 2 others are arriving at 11:30 and 12:30 if you scroll down to the May 27 posts. I wish we could accommodate your time frame, but we'd prefer to spend those few hours in Glacier rather than in Kalispell. Good luck to you and see you soon!
