Glacier National Park

— 4 nights

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.
Visiting Going-to-the-Sun Road and Avalanche Lake will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like McDonald Creek and Garden Wall. And it doesn't end there: trek along Cracker Lake Hike, appreciate the views at Logan Pass, stroll through Swiftcurrent Falls, and get great views at Jackson Glacier Overlook.
