One of the most beautiful national parks, Glacier makes our top five list. Our list is growing, but we’ve only scratched the surface when it comes to national park visits.

While many more will be in our future, our stay at Many Glacier Hotel on the edge of Swiftcurrent Lake will be hard to beat. There’s nothing like staying inside a national park and curling up in one of its historic hotels. This Swiss chalet-inspired lodge dates back to 1915.

Responsible for creating several fine lodges in the area, Great Northern Railway built Many Glacier Hotel. What better way to entice people to travel on its trains than the promise of visiting a remote and exotic destination in comfort?

Being situated inside the park makes rolling out of bed early to capture a beautiful sunrise like this one a snap. It’s one of the best times and places to enjoy a still moment and reflect on the majesty of nature.
