glacier national park
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 see as far as the eye can see. And when you experience that kind of vastness in Glacier National Park, it’s not something you’ll soon—or ever—forget.
Glacier National Park has one of the largest intact ecosystems in the lower 48, 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 and cross-country skiing, and springtime offers an opportunity to take advantage of a vehicle-free bicycle ride up the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
Glacier National Park has announced it will once again implement a ticketed entry reservation system for 2022 peak season—May 27 through September 11—to enhance visitor experience while managing traffic on the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor during peak hours. Additional details about the ticketed entry system will be available on the park website at www.nps.gov/glac.
