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.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Wed): appreciate the views at Logan Pass, then get great views at Jackson Glacier Overlook, and then take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 1st (Thu): hike along Iceberg Lake Trail and then admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park trip planner.

Chicago to Glacier National Park is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car.

Traveling from Chicago in September, you will find days in Glacier National Park are little chillier (70°F), and nights are much colder (40°F). Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) early enough to go by car to West Yellowstone.
