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.
Step out of Glacier National Park to go to West Glacier and see River Rafting & Tubing, which is approximately 48 minutes away. Spend the 13th (Thu) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, contemplate the waterfront views at McDonald Creek, take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, and get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall.

To see maps, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Glacier National Park day trip planning tool .
