Your Trip Questions Answered!
When is the best time to visit?

Glacier’s weather is most predictable between mid-June and early September, and that is also peak tourist season. The Going to the Sun Road is generally plowed by late June or early July, allowing visitors to travel the full length of the road.

What will the weather be like?

In Glacier National Park, the weather varies significantly depending on the season and elevation. Summers are generally mild to warm, with daytime temperatures averaging in the 60s to 70s F in the lower elevations and cooler temperatures in the higher elevations. Afternoon thunderstorms are common, especially in July and August. Fall brings cooler temperatures and changing foliage, with daytime highs ranging from the 40s to 60s F, while winter is cold and snowy, with temperatures often dropping below freezing and heavy snowfall common, particularly at higher elevations. Spring brings fluctuating weather conditions, including chilly mornings and evenings, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 30s to 50s Fahrenheit, and occasional snowstorms are possible. Visitors should be prepared for rapid weather changes and dress in layers accordingly throughout the year.

What highlights might I see?

The highlights of Glacier National Park include its stunning mountain scenery, pristine alpine lakes, and diverse wildlife. Visitors can explore iconic attractions such as the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which offers breathtaking views of rugged peaks and deep valleys, and hike to picturesque destinations like Avalanche Lake and Hidden Lake. The park’s many glaciers, including the iconic Grinnell Glacier, provide a glimpse into the region’s glacial history.

Will I see any wildlife?

Animals like mountain goats, elk, grizzly and black bear, moose, bighorn sheep, and so much more call Glacier home. Although wildlife sightings are never guaranteed, our guides understand the habits and habitats of these animals, which will help your chances of an encounter!

Should I combine this trip with another National Park?

Glacier National Park can easily be combined with Yellowstone & Grand Teton or Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada!

Are there any regulations I should know about?

Glacier National Park has implemented a vehicle reservation system from May – September. Visitors will need to reserve a pass in advance through recreation.gov. 

The primary winter road closure in the park is the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which traverses the park from west to east. This scenic highway typically closes at the end of the fall season, usually in late October or early November, and remains closed until late spring, typically in late May or early June. 

Other park roads and facilities will also close or have limited access during the winter months. Visitors should be aware of these closures and plan accordingly if traveling to Glacier National Park during the winter season. While some areas of the park remain accessible for winter recreation activities such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and winter photography, visitors should always check the park’s website or contact park officials for current road conditions and closures before planning their trip.
