Welcome to the Backbone of the World

Sun Tours offers daily Blackfeet interpretive tours through Glacier National Park on Going-to-the-Sun Road and throughout Blackfeet Country

NEW MAY 17, 2021 COVID-19 UPDATE: Oki (hello) traveler! We hope you are staying safe during these uncertain times! The day has finally come, we are now taking reservations! Before going any further, please read the following:

  • ALL reservations must be made through our reservation line at 406-732-9220. NO reservation will be confirmed unless you speak to a representative to book your tour. We are experiencing extremely high call volume, so we appreciate your patience.
  • You will NOT need a ticket for Glacier National Park’s new Ticketed Entry System IF you have a confirmed reservation with Sun Tours (or another concessioner/service). You will still need a normal Park pass, such as an Annual/Vehicle/Senior, etc. You can read more on that here.
  • We will not be offering ANY west side tours from the Apgar Visitor Center until the Going to the Sun Road fully opens (typically the end of June) but we are anticipating east side operations starting June 1st. Masks will be required throughout the duration of every tour. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at glaciersuntours@gmail.com. Thank you for understanding, and more importantly, helping keep our vulnerable Tribal communities safe during this time.

Come and visit our homeland and jump on a tour as we start our 29th season as an authorized concessionaire of Glacier National Park. And more importantly, a local Tribal business that shares our sacred connection to this landscape that goes back thousands of years. As you pass by beautiful sights and incredible views, enjoy an interpretation from one of our guides that specialize in local Blackfeet culture, history, family, and modern-day lifestyle.

Sun Tours is independently owned and operated by Ed & Toni DesRosier (a Blackfeet Chartered Tribal Business). Now residing in St. Mary, Montana, Ed and his wife Toni are members of the Blackfeet and Assiniboine Sioux Tribes.

Full Day Tours

Our premier and most popular tour is our full day tour that begins on the East Side of Glacier National Park on the Blackfeet Reservation. This route covers the Eastern approach to Glacier National Park along the Rocky Mountain Front, also known as the Backbone of the World, and Going-to-the-Sun-Road. We make many brief stops once in the interior of the Park, some of our most popular being the Iron Teepee’s, Wild Goose Island, Jackson Glacier, and Logan Pass. We pick up daily from the Izaak Walton Inn (minimum of 4) in Essex, MT, the historic Glacier Park Lodge in East Glacier Park, MT, and the Glacier Peaks Hotel in Browning, MT, which is the heart of the Reservation.
