Glacier National Park The Crown of the Continent Beckons

The Crown of the Continent Beckons

You don’t even need to see what’s around the next bend to be stopped in your tracks at Glacier National Park. The sheer beauty is jaw dropping from every angle. With over 1 million acres of towering, jagged peaks, cascading waterfalls, wild meadows and sparkling waters, plus wildlife watching and recreation opportunities, it is, quite simply, the vacation of a lifetime. The raw splendor of glacial-carved terrain is unlike any other place on earth. There’s something to be said about climbing high enough to actually see as far as the eye can see. And when you experience that kind of vastness in Glacier National Park, it’s not a something you’ll soon—or ever—forget.

Glacier National Park has one of the largest intact ecosystems in the temperate zone, and it's surprisingly easy to explore by road or trail. The Going-to-the-Sun Road—an engineering marvel and National Historic Landmark—takes visitors through the heart of the park over Logan Pass and is one of the most scenic drives in North America.

And while summer is the park’s busiest season, it’s open—and lovely—year-round. Autumn offers quiet exploration among golden hues and prime wildlife viewing. Winter in the park is prime for snowshoeing, ice climbing, cross-country skiing and sightseeing, and springtime offers an opportunity to take advantage of a vehicle-free bicycle ride up the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

To learn more about the history and culture of the park, please visit the National Park Service website.
