Crown of the Continent

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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore and take pictures at Going-to-the-Sun Road, stroll through Swiftcurrent Falls, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier.

Plan my trip to Glacier National Park with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
