Glacier National Park, one of the most spectacular national parks in the entire country, is located in northwestern Montana. Known as “the Crown of the Continent,” Glacier National Park was established as a national park in 1910, and over the past century, millions of people from across the world have visited the park and explored the natural splendor, including mountains, glaciers, lakes, and forests.
If you’ve never thought about a trip to Glacier National Park before, you should quickly reconsider. Many scientists have predicted that by the year 2020, all of the glaciers in the park will be gone because of global climate change. With only eight years of glaciers left, now’s the time to plan your trip to Glacier National Park!
Glacier National Park is located in the northwest part of the state. You can drive to the park in your Montana rental car
from Journey Rent-A-Car and access the park from its West Entrance or from the park’s east side at the St. Mary, Many Glacier, or the Two Medicine entrance.
When you arrive at the park, you’ll need to pay an entrance fee. If you’re visiting in the summer season from May through October, the fee is $25 per vehicle. During the winter months of November through April the fee is $15 per vehicle. The entrance fee is good for seven days, so you can spend plenty of time exploring the park.
What to See and Do
There is so much to see and do when you visit Glacier National Park. There are plenty of outdoor activities to take part in during your time at the park, including hiking, bicycling, boating, camping, fishing, and cross-country skiing. The park is open year-round, but be sure to check Glacier National Park’s website
for more information about seasonal activities and winter road closures.
One of the most popular activities is driving on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. This 50-mile road winds through the park’s interior and provides amazing park vistas to visitors. As you drive your Montana car rental
along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, be sure to stop at several points of interest, including Jackson Glacier Overlook to see an incredible view of a glacier from the road. During the summer, you can also hop on and off the park’s free shuttle service to see the sights along the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
