Things to do
Steeped in history, Glacier Park is a year-round outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Scale jagged mountain peaks, camp next to roaring glacier-fed rivers or simply take a cool summer stroll or mountain bike ride beneath the towering old-growth trees of the world’s only inland cedar rainforest. Walk the abandoned rail bed that marks one of the final links in Canada’s first trans-continental railway or wander the ruins of the West’s first luxury mountain resort as you immerse yourself in a vital piece of Canada’s history.
If you plan to tour in Glacier National Park, be aware that many areas of the park have restricted and prohibited access in winter — which are defined and managed within the Winter Permit System, a component of the Highway Avalanche Control Program.
Hiking in Glacier National Park offers a challenge - the chance to explore a portion of the rugged Columbia Mountains.
