Carway is a hamlet in southern Alberta, Canada within Cardston County.[1] It is a port of entry into the U.S. state of Montana opposite of Port of Piegan.[2] Just on the other side of the border is the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Glacier County, Montana.

Located approximately 25 km (15.53 mi) south of Cardston, Carway is the southernmost point of Highway 2, which becomes Highway 89 in Montana. Carway is one of the preferred Canadian ports of entry into the United States for tourists bound for the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park.
