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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Iceberg Lake and Fishercap Lake. Visiting Grinnell Glacier and Iceberg Lake Trail will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall, stroll through Cracker Lake Hike, hike along Grinnell Lake Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Jackson Glacier Overlook.

Calgary, Canada to Glacier National Park is an approximately 5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. When traveling from Calgary in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Glacier National Park: temperatures range from 24°C by day to 5°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
