Glacier National Park

— 5 nights

Crown of the Continent

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.
Get in touch with nature at Going-to-the-Sun Road and Iceberg Lake Trail. There's lots more to do: trek along Grinnell Glacier, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, tour the pleasant surroundings at Siyeh Pass, and take some stellar pictures from Jackson Glacier Overlook.
