We stayed at the Many Glacier Hotel, but even if you are unable to do so, you must come here. The views are simply incredible and it is near some of the best destinations in the park.

One of the most scenic stops in Glacier as well as the trailhead of many classic Glacier hikes. Don't miss this just because it's not on Going-to-the-Sun Road!

We enjoyed the easy walk around the lake after dinner and we were rewarded by a close encounter with a moose as we were leaving the wooden bridge (I actually thought the moose was going to step up onto the bridge!).

LOVED this hike in and out of woods around a lake. Streams come into it and folks fly fish on them. The water is freezing and clear and wonderful and the kayaking was great.

It is impossible to stand on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake and not be awe struck. The scenery and setting are stunning. It is a must stop view point in Glacier.

We took the tour with Glacier Park Boat Company on Swiftcurrent Lake and Josephine Lake. We enjoyed the two boat trips and the short hike between the two, although I think the altitude affected my breathing. The guides were friendly and informative. The boats hold...More
