Natural beauty combined with small-town hospitality makes Northwestern Montana’s Glacier Country the perfect pick for a group destination. Bordered by Canada’s Alberta province to the north and Idaho to the west, this gem is one you have got to see for yourself because pictures and postcards do not do it justice. Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley cities of Kalispell, Whitefish and Bigfork have plenty to offer group travelers.
Glacier National Park’s rugged mountains, sparkling waters and picturesque landscapes bring in over two million visitors each year to enjoy sightseeing, hiking, camping or just breathing in the crisp clean air. Perhaps the park’s most popular attraction is Going-to-the-Sun Road, listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It stretches over 50 miles of glacier-carved valleys through winding mountainsides and is sure to evoke “oohs” and “ahs” from the entire group. Keep your eyes peeled to catch a glimpse of the wildlife, including mountain goats, elk and possibly a bear. Stop at designated spots for photo opportunities and extended views, especially at Logan Pass. At 6,646 feet, it’s the highest peak on the drive, providing a magnificent panorama.
