Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is one of the biggest attractions for visitors coming to the Flathead Valley.   The natural beauty of this area is awe-inspiring and breathtaking.  The allure of hiking distant peaks, camping in remote areas, the wonder of seeing elk, buffalo, and mountain goats, as well as eating huckleberries picked from the branch along the trail, creates a type of mystical devotion to this area.

There are so many activities to pursue in Glacier National Park, it is often hard to know where to begin.  We make a lot of recommendations here at the Lodge and one of our favorite activities is Whitewater Rafting.  The rafting varies from very large water in the early season, May and June, to more manageable waters in July and August.  The companies that run the Whitewater Rafting in Glacier National Park are world class in terms of service and experience.  You will not be disappointed.

Hiking is obviously a huge draw, and Glacier National Park has over 700 miles of trails.  Some trails are open and maintained at different times of year, so we always recommend talking to our local concierge before you head out to the trail.   Follow up that hike by refueling your body with a piece of homemade huckleberry pie, and you will understand the allure of this place.

Horseback riding, boat rentals, and Red Bus Tours are also highlights of your time spent in the park.  The Lodge serves as a great home base for all your Glacier Park adventures.  After a long day of hiking and exploring, you can relax in the lakefront hot tub and unwind with a full body massage in our spa.  Luxury accommodations are a nice offset to the rustic conditions of Glacier National Park.
