It’s been called a garden of ice sculpture that could’ve only been carved by some mythic Michelangelo, a titan of precipitation. Its mountainous ridges run the Continental Divide like a great “Backbone of the World.” It is one half of a two-park International Peace Park, the first of its kind. It is Glacier National Park, and it must be seen to be believed.

In the land of ice and lake at Glacier National Park

Spanning roughly a million acres of Montana and stretching across the Canadian border into Alberta and British Columbia, Glacier National Park is one of North America’s most important and visually stunning spaces. This gargantuan park serves as a connecting point between north and south, east and west, and man and wild.

Come along as we take a tour of the crown of the continent, hiking the trails that climb from glacial lake to alpine height, riding the only railroad in the United States to stop within the confines of a national park, and winding along one of the world’s most scenic roadways, Going-to-the-Sun Road, up and over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. Learn what happened when homo sapiens finally discovered the wonders of this region after millennia of it remaining entirely untouched by man. Find your peace at Glacier!
