Glacier National Park

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 Garden Wall and Virginia Falls. Get outdoors at St.Mary Falls and Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Go for a jaunt from Glacier National Park to Polson to see Flathead Lake about 1h 55 min away. There's much more to do: stroll through Iceberg Lake Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Jackson Glacier Overlook, explore the activities along McDonald Creek, and hike along Trail of the Cedars.

Before you visit Glacier National Park, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
