Day 1

Depart Kalispell, MT 2PM

We start this fantastic trip by picking up you and your fellow Adventurers in Kalispell, MT.
We’ll prep you for your adventure and then enjoy a comfortable journey to Glacier National Park.

Day 2

Avalanche Creek and the Trail of Cedars

Hike to an amazing alpine lake surrounded by snowcapped peaks and steaming waterfalls. The trail first begins with the towering Trail of Cedars and then follows the beautiful Avalanche Creek to Avalanche Lake. In the late afternoon, relax on the shores of beautiful Lake McDonald, rent a kayak, or visit the shops at Apgar Village. We’ll enjoy a cookout and campfire tonight, and perhaps a local favorite: Huckleberry Ice Cream!

Day 3

Rafting and travel to the East Glacier.

Spend the morning rafting on the Flathead River or kayaking on Lake McDonald. In the afternoon we’ll travel to the East Side of the Park. Travel on a historic Red Bus Tour  over the Going to the Sun Road.

Day 4

Logan Pass

Logan Pass is the Heart of Glacier National Park. Situated right on the Continental Divide, this area offers great hiking and wild life viewing opportunities. Hike to scenic Hidden Lake Overlook, or part of the famous Highline Trail. Keep an eye out for mountain goats, big horn sheep, hoary marmots and maybe even a grizzly!

Day 5

Many Glacier

Nicknamed Little Switzerland, the Many Glaciers area gives us yet another chance to experience snowcapped peaks, pristine lakes, and beautiful alpine meadows. Hike the Swiftcurrent Nature Trail, or for a bigger challenge, try hiking to Josephine or Grinnell Lakes. We also recommend the scenic horseback ride, or renting a kayak for an hour or two, or relaxing on the Lodge porch!

 

Day 6

St Mary’s Valley

Hike along St. Mary’s Lake, through thick forests and past cascading creeks to St Mary’s and Virginia Falls. Or take a scenic boat ride/hiking combo tour to the same spot. Either way, you’ll love these astonishing views of the mountain peaks, waterfalls, and greenish blue lakes!

Day 7

Return to Kalispell, MT

We’ll roll back into Kalispell, MT between 10-12noon, exchange emails so we can share photos, and say our goodbyes to all of our new friends!
