Glacier Discovery Weeks:  Natural History Exploration Week in GNP for Adults

John Muir encouraged visitors to Glacier National Park to “give a month at least to this precious reserve.”  He said that time in Glacier “will not be taken from the sum of your life.  Instead of shortening it, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal.”  Although we cannot promise that this trip will result in immortality, we can promise a week of camaraderie, learning, and world-class hiking that you will remember for the rest of your life.  Join like-minded adventurers for a weeklong exploration of the ‘Crown of the Continent’ Ecosystem.  Venture out each day with professional naturalists to see and learn about cerulean lakes, meadows bursting with wildflowers, the iconic Going to the Sun Road, and Glacier’s famous bears and goats.  These trips are designed for those that want to see and learn as much as possible about Glacier over the course of a single week.  


Moderately strenuous.  Participants will hike an average of nine miles each day over uneven terrain with an average elevation gain of 1,500 feet.
