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.
Hiking in Glacier National Park offers a challenge - the chance to explore a portion of the rugged Columbia Mountains.

Find your own special place in Canada’s second oldest national park. Picnic in an avalanche path in summer or gaze at the 360 degree vista of peaks from Glacier Circle. Hike to the toe of the Illecillewaet Glacier or ski some of the continent’s deepest powder snow. Stand where a Prime Minister added the last shovel of asphalt to the Trans-Canada Highway.
