Top 3 Things to Do at Glacier National Park

1. Take a Red Bus Tour

Ride in the world’s oldest touring fleet of vehicles. Depart from the east or west sides of the park in these 1930s-era vintage buses with roll-back tops. They accommodate 17 people, four across on bench seating. The best part is the insider’s park scoop you get from extremely knowledgeable Red Bus drivers. Tours last between 2.5 -8 hours, depending on which one you choose. 

2. Ride on a Historic Boat at Two Medicine

Explore this stunning but off-the-beaten path area on the eastern side of Glacier by boat. Towering above Two Medicine Lake is Rising Wolf Mountain, a well-photographed, conical mountain. Take the oldest wooden boat in Glacier Park Boat Co.’s fleet across Two Medicine Lake and learn about the area’s Blackfeet Indian history. When the boat docks on the upper west shore, you can stay on the boat or disembark and hike with a naturalist or on your own to Twin Falls. Catch a different return boat or hike back. 

3. Drive Going-to-the-Sun Road

You cannot visit Glacier without driving this legendary road that connects the park’s east and west sides. Opened July 15, 1933, it’s nearly 50 miles long and takes at least two hours to drive one way.
