Glacier National Park ©
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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Glacier National Park: Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram), West Glacier (River Rafting & Tubing & Ptarmigan Tunnel) and Polebridge (The Polebridge Mercantile & Home Ranch Bottoms). Spend the 8th (Sat) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's much more to do: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Swiftcurrent Mountain, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and trek along Avalanche Lake.

To find more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Glacier National Park journey tool .

Expect a daytime high around 29°F in December, and nighttime lows around 16°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
