Glacier National Park comprises more than 1 million acres of bountiful, beautiful nature, from coniferous forests to endless meadows to the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Encounter some of the rare and unusual bird species that thrive in and around the park on an adventure led by expert birders with intimate knowledge of the area’s well-trodden trails and off-the-beaten-path locales. Catch glimpses of mountain goats and grizzly bears as you hike through the wilderness and into the habitats of both Eastern and Western Watershed bird species, and share in the knowledge of your expert hike leaders about the intricate ecology of these pristine natural areas.


• Benefit from the instruction of one of the top birding experts in the region, who provides the special knowledge needed to find Glacier’s rarest and most unusual species.
• Expand your life list on hikes that allow for rare sightings like Harlequin Duck, Northern Hawk-Owl, Black Swift, Great Gray Owl, Black-backed and Three-toed Woodpecker, Water Ouzel and White-tailed Ptarmigan.
• Touch the Continental Divide on a journey along the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road, bringing you above the tree line and into contact with Alpine species and birds from both sides of the watershed.
