Glacier National Park
— 8 nights

nights
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Running Eagle Falls and Swiftcurrent Lake. Step out of the city life by going to Virginia Falls and St. Mary Lake. Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: Polebridge (The Polebridge Mercantile & Home Ranch Bottoms), Jewel Basin Hiking Area (in Bigfork) and River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier). Spend the 20th (Mon) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. The adventure continues: trek along Highline Trail, stroll through Trail of the Cedars, explore the activities along Iceberg Lake, and explore and take pictures at Going-to-the-Sun Road.

To find where to stay, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
