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.
Visiting Virginia Falls and Highline Trail will get you outdoors. Spend the 17th (Wed) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Iceberg Lake Trail, contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake, admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass, and cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road.

To find traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park trip planner.

Calgary, Canada to Glacier National Park is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. While traveling from Calgary, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Glacier National Park, ranging from highs of 34°C to lows of 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can go by car to Whitefish.
