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.
Get outdoors at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and Grinnell Glacier. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Glacier National Park: River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier) and Mission Mountain Winery (in Dayton). There's still lots to do: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, contemplate the waterfront views at Swiftcurrent Lake, tour the pleasant surroundings at Iceberg Lake Trail, and take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Glacier National Park itinerary planner .

In August in Glacier National Park, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 47°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
