Glacier National Park is offering their special summer vacation packages including the famous Red Bus tours and their great lodges. According to U.S. Geological surveys, the glaciers of Glacier National Park could disappear as early as 2020, forever changing the features that make this park so unique. There is something very special about the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Parks that can best be experienced by breathing in the fresh mountain air, travelling on vintage buses and sleeping at lodges that date back to the early 1900’s. From late June until early September, Glacier Park offers an amazing 6 day/5 night tour of both parks, showcasing what Glacier National Park is all about.

The next two evenings are spent at the picturesque Many Glacier Hotel on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake and the base of Mt. Grinnell.
