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.
When in Glacier National Park, make a side trip to see River Rafting & Tubing in West Glacier, approximately 48 minutes away. Spend the 28th (Sat) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake McDonald, hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, and take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls.

To find ratings, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Glacier National Park driving holiday planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Glacier National Park can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
