Introduction
Spectacular as Montana's Glacier National Park is, we all know that scenery alone isn't the ideal way to satisfy young travelers on a family vacation in our national parks. That’s fine with us because, in fact, this region has a rich variety of activities to keep everyone happy. We’ll take kid-friendly hikes of course—to see glaciers, waterfalls and abandoned mines. In the company of a naturalist, the odds improve that you’ll see moose, deer, mountain goats and other wildlife. And you’ll get a horseback riding lesson before heading into the plains for a cowboy adventure on a working ranch. The grownups will enjoy the well-sited lodges where we stay…dinners on local specialties (while the younger set gets a kids’ night out at a pizzeria)…and exceptional hikes in what many regard as America’s most beautiful park.
Itinerary at a glance
DAY 1 - WHITEFISH
Our vacation with the family in Glacier National Park meets in Whitefish (1 night), an historic railroad and cowboy town, and take a thrilling gondola ride up Big Mountain for an easy walk with views of the Rockies and Flathead Valley.

DAYS 2-3 - WEST GLACIER
Next day, options include whitewater rafting or a guided walk through a beautifully carved gorge and cedar forest to turquoise Avalanche Lake. Later, settle into our historic lodge in West Glacier (2 nights). A morning lake cruise leads to a gentle trail that winds past a double waterfall and through wildflower meadows with a great chance to spot moose. Kids also love the junior ranger activities. One day, a local friend and member of the Blackfeet Indians joins us and shares the history, mythology and culture of the tribe with us through songs and stories.

DAYS 4-6 - MANY GLACIER / WHITEFISH
Nestled on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake, Many Glacier Hotel (2 nights) is the ideal starting point for some amazing walks and stunning views. We'll see who spots the first elk or bald eagle…and have a picnic at a waterfall…then do some unbelievable stargazing together. Following a cruise on Swiftcurrent and Josephine Lakes, the kids will see glaciers like they've only read about in school. On a scenic walk, the adults will enjoy learning about the historic mines in the area. Later, enjoy horseback riding with cowboy friends on a Big Sky horse ranch. On our final day, we return to Whitefish.
