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 base just outside the picturesque town of Whitefish, join us to experience the grandeur of Glacier National Park — so named because its dramatic landscape was carved by glaciers eons ago. Encounter the wonder and splendor of this diverse park during field trips to the Lake McDonald Valley, the Two Medicine area and to the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. Daily field trips are enhanced with the addition of instructors, naturalists, and other experts detailing the variety of life, thundering cascades, mammoth lakes and serrated peaks in one of nature’s greatest works of art.


• Discover rugged, glaciated mountains that rise above stunning valleys, lakes and rivers that are home to an array of rare plant life and amazing wildlife from goats to grizzlies.
• Take a scenic float trip down the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and ride the gondola to the summit for a panoramic view of Glacier National Park
• Travel the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road as you enjoy its spectacular and breathtaking vistas.
