Glacier National Park is a tourist attraction located at Montana, US. The area of the National Park is more than 1000000 hectares. It covers two mountain ranges (Rocky Mountains) and more than 130 lakes. Within this region there are more than 1,000 different plant species, and hundreds of animal species.
If you are a lover of outdoor activities, Glacier National Park is definitely on your visit list, with more than 700 miles of track with spectacular views, it's no wonder this place is also known as a pedestrian National Park. Glacier is a place for adventurers who want to explore the wilderness on foot, by boat, or even riding a horse. Recent years have seen an increase in visitors resulting in traffic and parking problems near the sun road, rooms and rustic lodges must be ordered several days in advance even the previous month.

The main purpose of the Glacier National Park visitors is not for accommodation, but for spectacular hiking trails, wild animals and amazing scenery that will satisfy you. You must come to hike to one of the 25 remaining glaciers or hike on the Continental Divide Trail. What photographers like about Glacier is wildlife, for various types of landscapes with dramatic colors of green, red and blue. Drive on Sun Road, explore the forest by sailing or paddling in the lake and of course to hike the trail is a way to enjoy Hikers National Park.
