After the Hungry Horse Dam, we will proceed to the village of West Glacier. This quaint little town sits just outside Glacier National Park on the Middle fork of the Flathead River. It is the west entrance to the park. Here you’ll have a few minutes to explore the small town and an opportunity to purchase food, drinks, and snack items as well as locally made goods, including a vast array of products featuring Huckleberries. Be sure to ask your guide about Huckleberries and Flathead Cherries. 

We will enter Glacier National Park just outside West Glacier, but not before a stop for a picture at the famous entrance sign. Once in the park Our first stop will be Lake McDonald Lodge. This historic building is one of the oldest hotels inside the park.  Behind the Lodge you can walk on the shore of beautiful Lake McDonald. Go ahead and dip your feet in the pristine water if you want.  Great photo opportunity. Ask your guide to take a group picture on the rocky beach.  Possible option for a short hike (see below) 

Next, we will make a stop in Apgar. Photo opportunities abound in this village which sits on the south end of Lake McDonald.  This will be a good place to have lunch.  Possible option for a short hike (see below)

The “town” of Polebridge is completely off the electrical grid and makes its own power via solar panels, The townsite consists primarily of the Northern Lights Saloon which serves up food and libations and the Polebridge Mercantile.  The Mercantile is on the National Registry of Historic places and is most famous for the bakery in the back of the store.

Many Glacier Area

The Many Glacier area in the Northeast part of Glacier National Park is a remote treasure that many park visitors never experience. Let our professional drivers take you there to explore or simply enjoy the vistas.   


After a brief stop and the Glacier Park Lodge in East Glacier, our destination will be the historic Many Glacier Hotel on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake.  The massive multi-level lobby of this beautiful property provides an excellent gathering point before heading off on a hike. Or take a boat tour which features a short walk between rides on two of the Park’s historic wooden boats across both Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine. Maybe putting your feet up on the hotel’s expansive decks or in the lobby – where hotel guests can be seen playing board games or enjoying the open fireplace – and resting your eyes on the lake and surrounding mountains is more to your liking. You’ll have two hours or more to explore the area before meeting your driver in the upper lobby for the return trip.    

Animal sightings including Grizzly bears are common in this area and trail closures are possible due to bear activity. Many hikes are available for all levels of experience.
