glacier park cabins in june

June can be magical at Glacier National Park. Before the crowds descend on the Park and before tourists and vehicles take over Going-to-the-Sun Road, take some time to embrace our very special corner of Montana. Glacier National Park is open year-round and as our winter snow melts, the Going-to-the-Sun Road slowly uncovers its 52-mile length. Before cars are permitted on the Road, however, it opens to hikers and bikers wanting to explore its alpine reaches, and Avalanche Lake is one of the hiking trails to open early. Whitewater rafting is thrilling as the rivers swell with snowpack melt, and we have all the gear to make your Class II-III trip comfortable. Wildlife reappears after a long winter in hiding and is often seen along the Camas Road and the North Fork Road towards Polebridge, Bowman Lake and Kintla Lake. It’s a great time of year for a horseback ride in the forest looking out on to the snow-capped mountains of the Park. Fishermen wet their flies on the waters of the Two Medicine, and our stocked ponds offer plenty of opportunity to perfect your cast. Nearby Whitefish Mountain Resort offers alpine slides, ziplines, mountain biking, hiking and scenic lift rides. Take advantage of our shoulder season discount through the month of June at Glacier Raft Company’s cabins. Cabin guests receive a 10% discount on all rafting and fishing trips.
