Many Glaciers

Often considered the heart of the park, Many Glaciers, in the north east quadrant of Glacier National Park, feels like stepping back in time.  With towering mountains, active glaciers, wildlife and beautiful waters, the area is stunning and populated with deer, bighorn sheep, black bears, grizzly bears and smaller mammals and birds.  Hiking trails, wooded campgrounds, winding drives and historic buildings add to the fun to be had here.

Many Glacier Hotel is located on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake in Many Glaciers.  The original portion of the hotel, the center, was constructed from 1914-1915.  By 1917 both annexes had been built.  The hotel has been remodeled and cared for since, but the original purpose and style remain.  The hotel was designed to mimic accommodations in the Swiss Alps, both inside and out.  GNPHotelweb
