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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Glacier National Park: Hungry Horse Resevoir (in Hungry Horse) and River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier). Spend the 11th (Sat) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. The adventure continues: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, and explore the activities along Lake McDonald.
