Located in Western Montana's Glacier Country, Glacier National Park encompasses more than 1 million acres, as well as hundreds of lakes, glacial-carved peaks, historic lodges, two backcountry chalets and a rich history. Established in 1910, Glacier Park is open year-round and provides visitors with an up-close look at one of the most intact ecosystems in the temperate zone. In 1932, Glacier National Park was designated—along with Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada—as part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the world's first peace park.
