Glacier National Park
The majestic Northern Rockies represent some of the grandest and most impressive terrain to be found anywhere in North America.
The mountains’ massive fortress walls plunge down ravines and waterfalls into emerald lakes and pristine forests. Moose and elk wander the marshes and river valleys where grizzlies hunt for salmon. A trip into the remote, rugged mountains of Montana and the Canadian Rockies is a trip through time and into a fierce, stunning landscape that continues to awe visitors as it has for millenia.
Your Moterra campervan awaits you just five minutes away from Glacier International Airport and has everything you need for this spectacular adventure into the Crown of the Continent. From mid June through to September the roads will typically be clear of snow, spectacular wildflowers will be on display, and wildlife spotting will be plentiful. Moterra’s luxury Mercedes Sprinters are the perfect way to explore Glacier National Park’s 1,489 square miles of wilderness or the 12,000 square kilometers of Canadian National Parkland just north of the border. Don’t forget your passport!

SEE IT ALL
There aren’t many places on Earth more visually-arresting or inspiring than Glacier National Park. Bighorn sheep perch on cliffs, waterfalls cascade off snow-capped peaks, and pristine stands of Red Cedar and Fir lend their shade to 740 miles of hiking trails. Scramble up Triple Divide peak, whose steep sides direct flows of water into three different bodies of water, then follow the setting sun up and over the Continental Divide, winding your way over the historic Going-To-The-Sun Road. Between the natural splendor and the picturesque harmony of the park’s historic lodges, this place is a must-see national treasure.
Part of the first International Peace Park, this beautiful national park is located just over the border from our Whitefish, MT campervan rental hub, in the province of Alberta, “where the mountains meet the prairies.” Hikers, mountain bikers, photographers and wildlife-aficionados alike will find world-class activity options, while the park’s three namesake lakes provide a worthy backdrop.
Canada’s oldest national park and undeniably one of its most impressive, Banff National Park is just one of the reasons to range North on Alberta’s iconic Highway 93. Each winter, heavy snows blanket the slopes and granite precipices of soaring peaks, melting in the spring through couloirs and glaciers into the glimmering emerald lakes resting at the mountains’ foot. From Canmore to Banff and Lake Louise, adventures abound in the Canadian Rockies. Pack those passports – you won’t want to miss this.
Driving out into Canada’s vast wilderness it can be hard to resist the impulse to push always a bit farther, a bit higher. The vast and pristine wild lands extend far from our borders, mountains, valleys, and glaciers rippling and curling north to the edge of the continent. Drive your van North to the incredible Jasper National Park, where mountains climb into the sky, reflected in the clear smooth mirrors of the alpine lakes or journey West to British Columbia and Canada’s Glacier National Park.
Explore the wilderness around Whitefish, Montana with our fully planned campervan tours.
From our Moterra hub in the vibrant town of Whitefish, Montana, your options are seemingly infinite. Glacier National Park has 1,538 square acres to explore, while Western Alberta and British Columbia are easily accessed from the Canadian border just 65 miles north of Whitefish.

Campgrounds book fast in Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks. We recommend making campground reservations as far in advance as possible. If some campgrounds fill before you grab a spot, we can provide a number of alternative camping options.
My boyfriend and I rented a Moterra campervan from Jackson, WY and finished our trip in Whitefish, MT. I have nothing but great things to say about this company. We worked with Trevor over at Jackson and Kevin at Whitefish, both who were incredibly knowledgeable. Their standard of excellence exceeds expectations with their customer service being impeccable. The employees in general have been highly responsive since the day I booked with them and they were willing to answer any questions that popped up. I met one of the owners at Whitefish as well and you can tell he truly loves the company and makes sure to maintain a company with a high quality standard. The vans are very well thought out and are equipped with everything you can possibly think of. Will definitely be renting from them again for future endeavors!

The hi-top van is spectacular and was crucial in us getting around GNP when the Going-to-the-Sun road was closed due to late season snow. Found the staff at Moterra super informative and helpful, A+ customer service. The van itself was comfortable and very convenient for two people. I would highly recommend the hi-top van to anyone interested in exploring the National Parks and wanting a flexible option for doing so.

Awesome trip! This is our third trip with Moterra, and I wouldn’t do it any other way now. The pop top van is on top condition, easy to drive, and makes it really effortless to get into the parks and national forests. It’s super fun, too. The kids love the van and help with all the camp chores. Montana is spectacularly beautiful. We spent a week at Glacier, saw all sorts of wildlife, did some big hikes, and were really able to see the park from all sides. Moterra staff were nice, professional, and extremely helpful as always. Looking forward to our next trip with them.
