The northeast corner of Montana is home to vast mountain lakes for summer recreation, picturesque ski slopes, and the revered Glacier National Park.

With over 700 miles of trails and 1,583 square miles of wilderness, Glacier is a hiker’s haven for those looking to get into the remote country of the West. Its pristine bodies of water, rugged mountain ranges, alpine forests, and sprawling meadows make for views that seem too majestic to be real. Flathead Lake, just south of Glacier, is nearly 30 miles long and a hub for boating, paddleboarding, kayaking, and swimming in the summer months. The lake is surrounded by lively bars, restaurants, and numerous farms where you can pick fresh Flathead cherries. West Glacier is a hub for whitewater rafters looking for adventure on the Flathead River as well.

When you visit Glacier Country, plan to spend plenty of time outside, taking in the sights and sounds of pristine wilderness at its best.
