What Is The Best Time To Visit Glacier National Park? Do You Want Snow, Bears Or Flowers?
Set in the mountains of northern Montana on the Canadian border, Glacier National Park is one of the nation’s most beautiful wilderness destinations and is an absolute must for any outdoor enthusiast to visit at least once in their life.
I am often asked about the best time to visit Glacier National Park and all seasons have something different to offer. Here is my guide to the advantages of visiting in spring, summer and fall to help you decide which season is most suited to activities you hope to enjoy.
All seasons have their advantages and different activities are possible at different times of the year so you should plan your visit according to what you hope to do. It is also possible to visit in the winter if you enjoy snowshoe walking or cross country skiing but most of the facilities are closed.
I enjoy every visit to Glacier no matter the season – but having said that, with a combination of fewer crowds, active wildlife and the beautiful colors, my favorite time of year to visit is early fall before the weather becomes too cold and the days too short.
