The weather at Glacier National Park can vary significantly depending on the time of year and the elevation you are at when you visit. The park’s diverse terrain, ranging from low valleys to high mountain peaks, influences the climate and weather conditions.

  • Summer (June to August). Warm and sunny, summer is the peak tourist season in Glacier National Park. The park is full of activities, such as hiking, camping, fishing, and boating.

When is the best time of year to take a trip to Glacier National Park?

The best time for Glacier National Park trips largely depends on your preferences and what you want to experience during your trip. Each season offers unique opportunities and activities. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect during different times of the year:

  • Summer. This is peak tourist season when the wildflowers are in full bloom, and the park is bustling with visitors. The weather is generally pleasant, with warm days and cool nights, making it the perfect time for outdoor activities like hiking, boating, and wildlife viewing. However, with all roads, attractions, and services open, be prepared for crowds, especially at popular spots and along the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
  • Fall. A beautiful time of year for trips to Glacier National Park, fall is when the crowds thin out, leaves change color, and the park is full of wildlife. Daytime temperatures are cooler, but the weather is still generally pleasant for outdoor activities.
  • Spring. The snow begins to melt, the wildflowers start to bloom, and the animals come out to play. The park is also less crowded during the spring, making it a quieter time to visit than in the summer.

What to pack for Glacier National Park tours?

Packing appropriately for trips to Glacier National Park is essential, as the weather can be unpredictable. Some outdoor activities may require gear. Before your trip, check the park’s current conditions and weather forecast to adjust your packing list accordingly. Being well-prepared will ensure a safe and enjoyable experience in Glacier National Park.

  • Layered clothing for variable weather. Pack T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, fleece or lightweight jackets, and a waterproof, breathable outer layer to keep comfortable in changing weather conditions. Moisture-wicking, breathable underwear and socks are also essential.
  • Cold weather gear. If you’re visiting in spring or fall, bring an insulated jacket or down vest, warm beanie, and gloves for chilly mornings or higher elevations.
  • Hiking boots. Sturdy, comfortable hiking boots with ankle support are critical for exploring Glacier National Park.
  • Binoculars. One of the highlights of tours of Glacier National Park is the opportunity to view wildlife in their natural habitat. This is always done from a safe distance, making a pair of binoculars essential.
  • Rain gear. We recommend packing a lightweight rain jacket or poncho and a travel umbrella to stay dry during rainy periods. Waterproof, quick-drying hiking pants or shorts will serve you well.
  • Sun protection. Bring sunscreen and lip balm with a high SPF, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the intense sun rays.
  • Reusable water bottle. Bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated, especially at higher elevations. This will help reduce plastic waste and save you money on buying bottled water.
