Montana's Glacier Country

Adventure abounds year-round under the legendary big blue skies of Western Montana’s Glacier Country. Mesmerizing landscapes offer countless outdoor recreation opportunities, and small towns brimming with charm and western hospitality flourish with arts, culture, shopping, dining and world-class accommodations.

Glacier Country spans millions of acres of jaw-dropping terrain including Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake—the largest freshwater lake in the West—two Indian reservations, pristine wilderness areas and 75+ storybook communities.

Glacier National Park is stunning, with terrain that varies from rolling foothills to celestial summits and cascading 400-foot waterfalls towering over wildflower-filled meadows. The iconic 50-mile-long Going-to-the-Sun Road winds through the heart of the park and crests the Continental Divide. Stay in a historic timbered lodge or backcountry chalet and explore 700+ miles of trails among an array of unmatched outdoor recreation.

Beyond the park, Glacier Country extends an unparalleled vacation experience. Cast a line on one of the region’s blue-ribbon trout streams. Hike or bike an endless trail system. Boat, paddleboard or swim in sparkling lakes and rivers. Carve turns at one of six downhill ski resorts—including world-class Whitefish Mountain Resort—or explore Montana’s winter wonderland by snowshoe.

Glacier Country’s small towns are defined by lively downtowns where arts and culture thrive. Find farm-to-table dining and farmers markets, plus breweries and distilleries. Explore museums, galleries and unique local shops.

Western Montana’s Glacier Country is a premier vacation destination offering an unforgettable experience any time of year.
