Glacier National Park is a true American classic. Early visitors declared it the “Crown of the Continent.” Conservationists were so enthralled that they lobbied for it to be preserved for the ages. People traveled by the legendary Great Northern Railway to seek adventure in its mountains and tranquility in its valleys and lakes. With more than one million acres of theatric terrain featuring sparkling rivers, dramatic mountains, lush valleys, and 400-foot rushing waterfalls, it is staggeringly beautiful.
Take a guided hike to learn about the ecosystem and wildlife, or travel along the Going-to-the-Sun Road and cross the continental divide aboard vintage Red Jammer buses. Those who love to fish can head out on a boat trip across crystal clear streams and lakes, and animal lovers can ride through the meadows on horseback or take a guided hike to spot wildlife. Grizzly bears, mountain goat, bighorn sheep and bald eagles are all commonly seen, if from a distance, at Glacier National Park.
Whether you’re hoping to relax and take in the majestic Rocky Mountains or ready for an outdoor adventure, the wealth of activities is sure to suit any taste and the beauty of the park is undeniable.
