ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.
From our lodging inside the park, explore different areas of the park daily and return to relax on warm summer evenings on spectacular Lake McDonald. Experience the grandeur of Glacier National Park — so named because its dramatic landscape was carved by glaciers eons ago. Encounter the wonder and splendor within this “Crown of the Continent” during daily field trips to the Lake McDonald Valley, Logan Pass and Many Glacier areas of the park. Field trips are enhanced by instructors, naturalists, and other experts detailing the variety of life, mammoth lakes and serrated peaks in one of nature’s greatest works of art.

• Discover rugged, glaciated mountains that rise above stunning valleys and turquoise waters, home to a natural wealth of plants and wildlife in the Swiftcurrent Valley.
• Take a scenic float trip down the Middle Fork of the Flathead River.
• Travel the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road and touch the Continental Divide, where waters flow both toward the Pacific and the Atlantic.
