Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park ©
The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Bowman Lake and Virginia Falls. Get in touch with nature at Running Eagle Falls and St. Mary Lake. Explore Glacier National Park's surroundings by going to Home Ranch Bottoms (in Polebridge), River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier) and The Shops at Station 8 (in Columbia Falls). Spend the 13th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Flathead Lake, hike along Trail of the Cedars, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, and look for gifts at Glacier Gateway Outfitters.

To find maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park attractions planner .

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in July, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
