Designated in 1910, Glacier National Park encompasses 1,600 square miles and is known as the “Crown of the Continent”. The Going-to-the-Sun Road, a national historic landmark, can be traveled by personal car or in a delightfully narrated Red Bus Tour. Naturalist’s programs include fireside talks, hikes and boat cruises where guests can learn the history of the glaciers, mountain peaks, climate zones, native wildlife, flora and fauna. Popular sites include Lake McDonald, Many Glacier Valleys, St. Mary Lake and Jackson Glacier.
The 700+ miles of well marked trails provide an incredible variety of hiking to explore the more than 700 mountain lakes, numerous glaciers, hundreds of species of plant life and possibly a glimpse of one of the full-time residents such as grizzly and black bears, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, moose, deer and more.
What’s the best way to see Glacier National Park? Trails are the mode of transport for hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding and more. Or, sample the crystal clear waters of Glacier on a scenic boat tour or whitewater rafting trip. If you really want to wade into Glacier’s lakes and streams, bring your fishing rod. Your fishing can be guided or on your own. You don’t need a license to fish in the park, but ask for a copy of the fishing regulations at a visitor center or ranger station.
