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.
Get in touch with nature at Running Eagle Falls and Virginia Falls. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Swiftcurrent Lake and Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram), Flathead Lake (in Polson) and River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier). There's lots more to do: hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier, contemplate the waterfront views at St. Mary Lake, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Trail of the Cedars.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
