Glacier National Park

Known for its seemingly endless acres of rugged and breathtaking landscapes, Glacier National Park was established in 1910 and stands today as a monument to wild natural places. Glacier Park is known for its pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and spectacular lakes offering a paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude. The park encompasses over 1 million acres and includes parts of two mountain ranges (sub-ranges of the Rocky Mountains), over 130 named lakes, more than 1,000 different species of plants, and hundreds of species of animals including grizzly bears, moose, mountain goats, wolverines and Canadian lynxes. This vast pristine ecosystem is the centerpiece of what has been referred to as the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem, a region of protected land encompassing 16,000 square miles.
