About Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is perched along the Montana-Canadian border. Just on the other side of the border sits Canada’s Waterton Lake National Park. In 1932, these two parks joined to create the world’s first international peace park.

Our side of Glacier National Park features incredible jaw-dropping views and outdoor adventures. Many tourists come to hike the over 700 miles of hiking trails that reveal an astonishing scenery, unlike anywhere else in the world. You will find yourself at the gorgeous glaciers that give this park its name within some of these hikes. In addition to hiking, you can go horseback riding, boating, stargazing, or spend time lounging on the lakes.

It is easy to see why Glacier National Park gets over 100 million visitors a year. I can promise that once you visit, you will want to come back time and time again.
