We got off to a bad start on the boat ride at Many Glacier. Knowing that only 50% of the seats are sold with advance reservations, we drove the horrendous Many Glacier Road (a road of abundant potholes) three days in in advance of our...More

The naturalist who led the hike was so informative about local flora and fauna. Highlight was information about the wild berries (huckleberries, currants, thimble berries) along the trail. The boat trip is a beautiful way to see the park and a nice change from driving.

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the park. This is a great way to see a few glaciers closer and also to get a history of this area. You also have an option to hike and be picked up later.

Good lake tour but really and truly we could have skipped the tour... we both almost fell asleep and the tour adds very little information that we hadn't already heard from other rangers or tours... still a good attraction but not spectacular.........

Just the shorter boat ride. The hikes would be too much for preschool children, unless you want to carry them.
