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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall.
