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.
Escape the urban bustle at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and Iceberg Lake Trail. And it doesn't end there: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, trek along Grinnell Glacier, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, and take in the dramatic natural features at Jackson Glacier Overlook.

To plan Glacier National Park vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Tampa to Glacier National Park is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or take a train. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 2 hours. When traveling from Tampa in August, plan for a bit cooler days and much colder nights in Glacier National Park: temperatures range from 83°F by day to 48°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) to allow time to travel to Yellowstone National Park.

An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at S Rim Trail and Lone Star Geyser. Visiting Old Faithful and Artist Point will get you outdoors. Step out of Yellowstone National Park with an excursion to Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone--about 1h 20 min away. And it doesn't end there: take in the natural beauty of Upper Geyser Basin, take in the dramatic scenery at Kepler Cascades, stroll through Artists’ Paintpots, and take in the dramatic natural features at Gibbon Falls.
