Glacier Country’s Many Lakes

If paddling a kayak through snowcapped mountains mirrored in a pristine lake sounds like a good time to you, well, that’s one of our specialties. The list of ways to play on our lakes is long: swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, water skiing, watercrafting, boating, sailing, fishing and ice fishing. And with notable lakes like Flathead Lake, Whitefish Lake, Lake McDonald, Lake Como, Seeley Lake and Lake Koocanusa as well as the hundreds of high-alpine glacial-fed lakes and quiet pools scattered throughout our region, your options are endless.

Yellowstone Undiscovered.

North of the park, wanderlust meets awe in Montana's Yellowstone Country. Cinematic expanses captivate and mountain towns inspire. Discover the Yellowstone you haven't seen yet.
