Explore wild Northwest Montana through Glacier National Park and Flathead Valley in breathtaking Glacier Country.
Northwest Montana is abundant with natural beauty, rugged mountains and impressive wildlife. Combined with small-town hospitality, Glacier Country is a magnificent pick for a group destination. Bordered by Canada’s Alberta province to the north and Idaho to the west, the postcard-worthy views must be seen to be believed.
Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley cities of Kalispell, Whitefish and Bigfork have plenty to offer group travelers, from cultural quests to outdoor adventures. The rugged mountains of Northwest Montana offer sparkling waters and stunning landscapes that bring in millions of visitors each year. People travel from all over to enjoy epic sightseeing and photo opportunities, hiking, camping and breathing in the crisp clean air.
Perhaps the park’s most famous 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, big-horned sheep and bears.
Stop at designated spots for photo opportunities and extended views on your trek through Glacier Country, especially at Logan Pass. At 6,646 feet, it’s the highest peak on the drive, providing a magnificent panorama. Northwest Montana features an array of fantastic group adventures for every season.
