One Day in Glacier National Park

While we highly recommend visitors take at least two or three days to really see and experience Glacier National Park, we also know that many are on a tight itinerary, so here are some of the top “must-dos” when you have limited time in Glacier National Park.

  1. Take an interpretive tour of Glacier National Park and the Going-to-the-Sun Road from the Blackfeet Indian perspective on a Sun Tour, or jump aboard a historic red bus tour and leave the driving to the jammers (a name given to the drivers).

  2. Once you’re done with your tour, stop for a visit at historic Lake McDonald Lodge, and dine at Russell’s Fireside Dining Room or Jammer Joe’s Grill & Pizzeria.

  3. Leave enough time to take a historic, scenic boat ride with Glacier Park Boat Company on the DeSmet, and cruise the pristine waters while listening to the commentary (advance reservations are recommended in the busy summer season).

  4. Visit Apgar Village and take in the most photographed spot in Glacier National Park at the edge of Lake McDonald before grabbing an ice cream from Eddie’s CafĂ© & Mercantile.
