Family Fun Family Vacations in Glacier Country

Family Vacations in Glacier Country

The benefits of outdoor play on the mind, body and spirit are immense, so you can imagine what it does for the family bonding experience in a place as vast and beautiful as Montana. For generations, families have been vacationing in Western Montana's Glacier Country, where adventure comes in many forms and can be as simple as floating a river, picking wild huckleberries or exploring a ghost town. Guided trips also provide a great way to explore new and different activities, regardless of skill level.

Try boating on Flathead Lake, learning to ski or snowboard on a powdery slope, taking a zip-line tour at Whitefish Mountain Resort. Hike along a high ridgeline or take a drive across the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Take advantage of seasonal deals and help stretch your budget.

If your furry, four-legged family member’s in tow, try one of our many pet-friendly lodges.

Influenced by the Wild
