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 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!

Virginia Falls.

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!
