The Best Glacier National Park Itinerary From 1 to 7 Days

Glacier National Park in Montana is our favorite National Park in the US and we have been to almost all of the National Parks. It is magical, it will take your breath away, you won’t want to leave! In this post we share our 1,3, and 7 day Glacier National Park Itinerary recommendations so you can have an amazing trip.

Glacier National Park Itinerary

There are so many awesome things to do in Glacier National Park we want to help you figure out what not to miss and how to see the most you can see in the time you have!

When To Visit

Views of Hidden Lake in Glacier

We highly recommend visiting Glacier National Park when the Going-to-the-Sun Road is open. This varies each year based on the weather—and there is no set date when it opens—but it is normally open starting in July through sometime in September. But always check their site for the most up to date information. You can visit the park when it is closed but you definitely miss some of the best parts!

Entry Tickets

For 2023 you will need to have entry tickets for park. Dates and times are below:

  • Going To The Sun Road – May 26th – September 10th from 6am to 3pm.
  • North Fork (Bowman Lake) – May 26th – September 10th from 6am to 3pm.
  • Going To The Road From St Mary (east side) – July 1st – September 10th from 6am to 3pm.
  • Many Glacier – July 1st – September 10th from 6am to 3pm.

Try to get these tickets for your trip. However if you can’t you do have another option to go out after 3pm. It is light until 9/10pm at night so you still have a lot of time to get out and do some exploring!

But ALWAYS double check their site to make sure nothing has changed. You can do that here.

How To Get To Glacier National Park

Flying into Glacier Park International Airport FCA is an option. They have a variety of daily flights (some just in season) that can work. The airport is 12 miles from Whitefish and 30 miles from the West Glacier entrance.

Click here to start to plan your Glacier Park International Airport FCA trip.

You could also take the Amtrak into Glacier. We don’t recommend this unless you are looking for a guided tour.

You can drive to Glacier. A road trip is almost always a fun time! But note if you do this you will most likely have to add on an extra day and night for travel.

Do You Need A Car For Glacier?

The short answer and our recommendation is yes. The park spreads across multiple areas and you won’t be able to see all the places we recommend without a car. There is a shuttle service in the park and tours. But a car will give you more flexibility and allow you to visit Many Glacier, Polebridge and Two Medicine.

If you are just coming in for a day you could do without – if you are good with shuttles and tours.

Driving In The Park

Don’t believe Google Map drive times. The roads are windy on the Going-to-the-Sun Road so it takes longer. And the roads to Many Glacier, Polebridge and Two Medicine are bumpy with lots of pot holes and free roam cattle.

To drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road from the west entrance to the east entrance can take
approximately 2 hours without stopping (which you will most likely want to stop for pictures.) Plus there are can be animal sighting traffic jams – that can make it take even longer.

Glacier National Park Hiking

Highline Trail - Glacier National Park Itinerary
Highline Trail

To truly explore this magnificent park you are going to want to get out and hike. If you aren’t all about hiking for miles that is OK. There are options that will work for almost anyone. But do yourself a favor and plan on doing some hiking when you visit.

Take note: Trails can be closed due to bear activity so always check with a ranger before you head out on a hike. If a trail is closed it will normally have a sign by the trail head that says closed. But we always like to confirm at the visitor center just to be sure!

Make sure to have your Bear Spray with you. We recommend buying it before you come. Or if you are flying ask at your hotel/campground to see where you can buy it in the area. The National Park normally sells it – but sometimes they run out so better to have a few options.

Planning a trip to Glacier? We put together a series of digital guides that take the guesswork out of planning. Stop-by-stop itineraries for making the most of 1, 3 or 7 days in Glacier National Park including where to stay, where to eat, what hikes to take and the best driving routes.

We’ve even included links for you to book your stays and buy your park passes. Everything you need in one convenient digital guide. Just download and go!


1 Day Glacier National Park Itinerary

The 1 day itinerary will take you from the West Entrance to the East Entrance on The Going To The Sun Road. This means the road has to be open in order to do complete this itinerary. It really is the top thing in Glacier so try to plan your trip around when it will be open!

If you are going when it is closed – you will have to take out the Going-To-The-Sun road parts plus Logan Pass visitor center and the things to do around there.

Breakfast: Grab something quick at your place or stop at a grocery store the night before to get breakfast and some additional snacks and water to bring with you for the day. I would also recommend packing a lunch and having that with you so you don’t have to waste time during your day going to a restaurant or paying National Park prices for food.

1st Half Of The Day

Start: West Glacier – West Entrance. (be sure to have your entrance ticket and be prepared to pay to enter Glacier – unless you have a National Park pass).

Stop 1: Agpar Visitor Center – stop here to check in with the rangers, get a map (if you didn’t when you drove in) and to take a look around.

Stop 2: Lake McDonald Lodge – stop to check out the lodge that was built in 1913 and to take in the views of the lake. They have a general store and some food if you want to grab anything while you are here.

Stop 3: Trail of the Cedars Hike – This is a great hike and almost anyone can do it since it is a boardwalk trail and is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.

  • Distance: 1 mile loop trail

Stop 3 Extra: Avalanche Lake – if you are feeling up for a more challenging hike you can continue off of the Trail of the Cedars hike and up to Avalanche Lake. The effort is well worth it for the view of the mountain lake at the end. But be prepared!

  • Distance: 4.5 miles round trip (there and back trail)
  • Elevation Gain: 730 feet (you are pretty much gradually climbing up the mountain the whole time).

Time for lunch – I would recommend doing a picnic lunch right at your car. Or if you didn’t want to pack a lunch you can go back to the Lake McDonald lodge are to get Pizza at Jammer Joe’s Grill and Pizzeria.

2nd Half Of The Day

Going to the sun road on the Glacier National Park Itinerary
Going To The Sun Road

Stop 4: Drive the Going-To-The-Sun Road – be prepared for this to take longer than you think it will. You are going to want to stop at every pullout to take a picture. That isn’t quite necessary. But hey this is your trip so if you want to go for it!

Tips For Driving The Stunning Going To The Sun Road

Stop 5: Logan Pass Visitor Center with the Hidden Lake Overlook hike – Stop at the visitor center (be prepared for traffic and having to drive around waiting for someone to leave to get a parking spot). In the visitor center they usually have a few displays up and Rangers there to answer questions.

There is also a gift shop. If you have the energy and time head out on the Hidden Lake Overlook hike. It is totally worth it so if you can swing it go for it!

  • Distance: 2.7 miles round trip (there and back)
  • Elevation gain: 1325 feet – there are a lot of steps

Stop 6: Jackson Glacier – you will continue on the Going-To-The-Sun road for about 5 miles until you reach the pullout for Jackson Glacier – be sure to put this into Google Maps and download your map before you go so you don’t miss it! Or follow the park map.

Stop 7: St Mary Falls Hike – This is a pretty short hike at just 1.6 miles there and back and the falls are beautiful. I will say if you are done hiking or can’t imaging planning this many hike sin a day – this would be the one I would skip.

  • Distance: 1.6 miles round trip (there and back)
  • Elevation gain: minimal

Stop 8 – Wild Goose Island Overlook – After St Mary Falls if you continue about 6 more miles you will come to the Wild Goose Island Overlook at St Mary lake. To me this is the iconic Glacier National Park view.

Dinner: St Mary Village – there is a grill, bar and cafe located in St Mary Village.

Where To Stay

At this point you can either turn around and drive back through the Going-To-The-Sun road or you can take the longer flatter route around the outside of the park back to the west entrance. Or you can plan to book a room to stay the night at the St Mary Lodge & Resort.

*We have driven the Going-To-The-Sun road at night. It is a bit scary and you have to be aware of wildlife. We came across a mama bear and her cubs on the road when it was pitch black outside! It will be slow driving and with it being dark you can’t see much. Totally your call on what way you want to drive back.

Day 2 of 3 Day Glacier National Park Itinerary

Grinnell Glacier Hike In Glacier National Park
Grinnell Glacier Hike

Today you will explore the Many Glacier area. This part of the park is gorgeous so you don’t want to miss it!

Breakfast: Grab breakfast at your hotel or the local convenient store. Don’t forget snacks and water for the day!

**If you didn’t stay in St Mary’s Village area be sure to check drive times. Getting to Many Glacier from the west entrance will take you 2 1/2 to 3 hours. It can be done in a day from west Glacier – we have done it. But it is a long day and lots of driving.

Stop 1: Grinnell Glacier Hike – This is a long but unbelievable hike. If hiking isn’t your thing there is also a shuttle boat service that will take you from Many Glacier Hotel Boat Dock to Grinnell Lake. From Grinnell Lake you can hike the 3 miles round trip (there and back) trail to get to Grinnell Glacier. This is an uphill hike so be prepared for that.

The other option is to just take the Shuttle Boat to Grinnell Lake. The boat tour is beautiful and Grinnell Lake is gorgeous as well. If hiking isn’t your thing we recommend you do this.

Grinnell Glacier Hike:

  • Distance: 7.2 miles round trip (there and back)
  • Elevation gain: 1840 feet

2nd Part Of The Day

Swiftcurrent General Store Glacier National Park Itinerary
Swiftcurrent General Store For Ice Cream

Lunch: Many Glacier Hotel – there a few options here for lunch. If you want to save time bring a packed lunch to eat in the parking lot.

Stop 2: Josephine Lake Horseback Riding OR Apakuni Falls. If you don’t want to hike look into doing the Horseback Riding. If you want to see an awesome waterfall up close head to the Apakuni Falls trail. Be sure to pack your bear spray!!

Apakuni Falls Hike:

  • Distance: 1.7 miles round trip
  • Elevation gain: 625 feet

Dinner: Nell’s at Swiftcurrent – we were pleasantly surprised with the options on the menu here including organic items, grass-fed beef options and vegetarian options.

Dessert: Swiftcurrent General Store – head into the general store to get some self-serve huckleberry or vanilla ice cream.

Head back to your hotel by St Mary’s Village or back to West Glacier. Day 3 can be done from either location.

Day 3 of Glacier National Park 3 Day Itinerary

Highline Trail
Highline Trail

Breakfast: Grab something quick so you can get out exploring again!

Stop 1: St Mary’s Falls – If you stayed in the St Mary’s Village area and didn’t have time to do the St Mary Falls hike on day 1 do it now! If you stayed in West Glacier skip this part.

Stop 2: Drive the Going-To-The-Sun road. Trust me when I say you will want to drive this road more than one time when you visit Glacier! It is also cool to do it from the other direction since it gives you a different perspective and views as you are driving.

Lunch: Bringing a picnic lunch will be your best bet!

2nd Part Of The Day

Stop 3: Highline Trail Hike – this hike isn’t for everyone but if you are OK holding onto a chain while you walk along the edge of a mountain you are in for some pretty spectacular views. This trail is located across from the Logan Pass visitor center.

Round trip it is 11.8 miles. But you don’t have to do all that. When we did it we just went about 1 mile into the trail and stopped and turned around and came back.

Stop 4: Lake McDonald Beach – enjoy some quiet time as you relax on the beach and take in the beautiful views. There are a variety of pullouts you can park in off of the road and get out to walk down to the beach.

If you have a paddle board or kayak with you – you could bring those out on the water. As long as you are good with cold water.

Dinner: Great Northern Bar and Grill – head into the town of Whitefish and go the Great Northern Bar and Grill or find another restaurant that appeals to you in Whitefish.

There you have it! 3 days in Glacier National Park! If 3 isn’t enough – which we 100% believe – keep reading to find our 7 day itinerary – which can easily be adjust to be a 4 or 5 day Glacier Itinerary as well.

2nd Half Of The Day

Lunch: Bring a Picnic lunch with you.

Stop 4: St Mary Falls Hike – This is a pretty short hike at just 1.6 miles there and back and the falls are beautiful. I will say if you are done hiking or can’t imaging planning this many hike sin a day – this would be the one I would skip.

  • Distance: 1.6 miles round trip (there and back)
  • Elevation gain: minimal

Stop 5 – Wild Goose Island Overlook – After St Mary Falls if you continue about 6 more miles you will come to the Wild Goose Island Overlook. To me this is the iconic Glacier National Park view.

Dinner: St Mary Village – there is a grill, bar and cafe located in St Mary Village.

You can either plan to spend the night here (at a place like the Rising Sun Motor Inn) or drive back to West Glacier. Just be sure to check the time and if you are driving in the dark on the Going-To-The-Sun road be ready for it! We have done it. But it is slow going and you have to look out for wildlife. It is pitch black so you also won’t have any amazing views when driving in the dark.

Day 4: Highline Trail

Highline Trail
Highline Trail

Start off on the Going-To-The-Sun Road – believe me when you say you will want to do this drive as many times as you can while you are in Glacier. In our opinion it is the most beautiful road in the US!

There isn’t much recommended on this day so take your time on the Going-To-The-Sun road and stop to take pictures, to take in the scenery and to just enjoy your time on the road.

Stop 1: Highline Trail Hike – this hike isn’t for everyone but if you are OK holding onto a chain while you walk along the edge of a mountain you are in for some pretty spectacular views. This trail is located across from the Logan Pass visitor center.

Stop 3: Continue on the Going-To-The-Sun Road and make your way to the St. Mary Village which is located on the other side of the park.

Dinner: St. Mary Village.

For this itinerary we would recommend you stay in the St Mary’s Village area for tonight so you can be closer to Many Glacier – where we recommend you head on Day 6.

**If you didn’t stay in St Mary’s Village area be sure to check drive times. Getting to Many Glacier from the west entrance will take you 2 1/2 to 3 hours. It can be done in a day from west Glacier – we have done it. But it is a long day and lots of driving.

Glacier National Park Itinerary Grinnell Lake
