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.
Take a break from the city and head to Jewel Basin Hiking Area and Going-to-the-Sun Road. Explore hidden gems such as Mission Mountain Winery and Whistling Andy. Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram) and Eva Gates Homemade Preserves (in Bigfork). Spend the 31st (Mon) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along McDonald Creek, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall, and trek along Swiftcurrent Falls.

December in Glacier National Park sees daily highs of 29°F and lows of 16°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
