Snowshoeing Glacier National Park
Our most popular winter adventure– snowshoeing Glacier National Park. A favorite for families, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts.
Snowshoeing Glacier National Park in winter is magical; snow hanging in the cedars, frozen lakes, waterfalls and desolate peaks create a landscape unlike any other. Snowshoe tours are available on either the west or east side of the Park, giving you the option to tour old-growth forest or travel over windswept alpine meadows.
What an amazing day!!! I was fortunate to have the owner Greg Fortin as my guide. With Greg’s help, I saw the Lake McDonald area this morning, went to view the Continental Divide, had lunch on a gravel bar in the middle of the Flathead River, and spent the entire afternoon hiking and snowshoeing in Glacier National Park, just about 20 miles from the Continental Divide. Perfect! –Mary, via tripadvisor.com
