The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
On the 1st (Sat), look for gifts at The Polebridge Mercantile, look for gifts at Home Ranch Bottoms, and then relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour. On the 2nd (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: look for all kinds of wild species at Goat Lick Overlook and then explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier.

To see reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Glacier National Park journey planner.

You can drive from Bozeman to Glacier National Park in 6.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and taxi; or do a combination of bus, shuttle, train, and car. In June in Glacier National Park, expect temperatures between 75°F during the day and 45°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Mon) to allow time for the car ride back home.
