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.
Glacier National Park is known for nature, scenic drive, and trails. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, explore the activities along Swiftcurrent Falls, and hike along Iceberg Lake Trail.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Glacier National Park road trip app.

Salt Lake City to Glacier National Park is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car.
