A must for this US-Canadian National Parks Guided Vacation are your camera and your binoculars. At Glacier, and throughout this interlude, you will see spectacular visages and also glimpses of sheep, goats and bears! Moose and deer have often been spotted as well. The trails that surround the hotel are filled with wildlife and gorgeous scenery! Drink in Mother Nature at her finest at the utterly charming Many Glacier Lodge literally surrounded by jagged mountains, loads of wildlife and the very blue and serenely beautiful Swiftcurrent Lake.
Wow! You might expect the mountain to be wonderful, but nothing prepares you for the beauty of Glacier. The lodge itself is amazing! The beautiful colors of the lakes….jaw dropping. Nature at its best- just waiting for you and your camera to capture it! There are simply not enough adjectives to adequately describe the awesomeness that is Glacier!
Catch sight of a bighorn sheep perched on the edge of a bluff. Get in a morning walk through a forest full of red cedar and fir. Journey on Going-to-the-Sun Road and soak up some of the finest views in northwest Montana. The road is 50 miles of stunning scenery. There are 62 species of mammals here, from diminutive pygmy shrews to majestic mountain goats, grizzly bears and elk, more than 260 species of birds, 780 miles of trails and 10,000 years of natural history. Going-to-the-Sun Road is an experience to remember. Bisecting the heart of Glacier, this road follows the shores of the park’s two largest lakes and hugs the cliffs below the Continental Divide as it traverses Logan Pass. Numerous scenic turnouts and wayside exhibits allow travelers to stop and enjoy the park at their own pace. Known as “the most beautiful 50 miles in the world”, here you will be able to take in breathtaking panoramic views that you will long remember.
While visiting Wallace you might want to see the famed “Bordello Museum”. This may not be for everyone, but it is truly a slice of history – authentic and original! The bordello tour presents the whole picture of past life in an old mining town. The rooms have been preserved as they were when the brothel was closed. Both gaudily cheesy and historically accurate, this tour takes you through a day in the life of this local establishment and the “girls” who worked there. Very interesting! It’s certainly not every day you get the chance to see “how things were done”! There are lots of great things to do and see to make this interlude a unique and memorable trip.
