Program #20884RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 8 - 12 years of age.

Create exciting memories with your grandchild as you discover the majestic peaks, sparkling rivers and green gullies of Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley. Learn about magnificent wildlife, plants, geology and the area’s early inhabitants on instructor-led walks and visits to favorite spots in the park. Visit the Summit Nature Center on Big Mountain, raft along Glacier's southern border, hike trails full of flora and fauna and look out over valleys, lakes and rivers from mountainsides in this beautiful, rugged landscape.


Highlights

• Take a spectacular drive on the Going-to-the-Sun Road and learn about the wildlife of Glacier National Park in its natural habitat.
• Develop your teamwork skills on a safe raft journey down the Middle Fork of the Flathead River on Glacier's southern border.
• Soar to new heights aboard the gondola to the summit and feel the wind in your hair as you slide down the Alpine Slide.
