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.
Escape the urban bustle at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and Grinnell Glacier. Step off the beaten path and head to Highline Trail and Mission Mountain Winery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Glacier National Park: Bigfork (Jewel Basin Hiking Area, Whistling Andy, & more) and Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram). Next up on the itinerary: trek along Iceberg Lake Trail, explore the activities along St. Mary Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Running Eagle Falls, and explore the striking landscape at Jackson Glacier Overlook.

In December, daytime highs in Glacier National Park are 29°F, while nighttime lows are 16°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
