Glacier National Park

There are 26 glaciers and 130+ lakes in Montana’s Glacier National Park, surrounded by the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Sadly many of these glaciers are melting and rapidly receding, so visiting the park sooner rather than later may be in your best interest.

Nicknamed the “Crown of the Continent” (with the glaciers as its jewels), Glacier National Park is located on the United States border with Canada; together with Canada’s Waterton Lakes National Park the duo represent “Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park”- the first designation of its kind in the world.

Highlights include the scenic 50-mile 2-hour drive on “Going-to-the-Sun Road”, dozens of gorgeous hikes through monstrous mountains, and the majestic serenity of Glacier’s many lakes, rivers, and frozen ice masses from which the park gets its name.
