    Mountains, lakes, wild goats; bring your Montana car rental to Glacier National Park for one certified adventure! Established in 1910, this destination in Northwestern Montana spans over 1 million acres with more than 700 lakes, 500 streams, 175 mountains, as well as 26 glaciers available for viewing. From the dense forests, alpine meadows and jagged-edged peaks, travelers will have a whole world of recreational activities at their disposal while road tripping out west with a vehicle from Explorers can even drive to Yellowstone National Park rather easily for more outdoor whimsies. But first, let's discern where Glacier National Park is on the map!

    Where is Glacier National Park

    Established in 1910, Glacier National Park is located in Northwestern Montana, north of the Flathead National Forest and adjacent to Alberta plus British Columbia. Ranging from grizzly bears to roaming mountain goats, this portion of the Rocky Mountains is as remote and backcountry as it gets. In case you don't have your own vehicle, one of our discount USA car rentals in Montana or perhaps leasing options in Wyoming can be a great alternative to navigate the area. Although shuttles run, the schedules are limited and not as COVID-friendly as car rentals from Jackson Hole or Bozeman; two of the most frequented cities near Glacier National Park!

    Whether you are renting an SUV or going for a multi-passenger van to bring the whole family, it will be a piece of cake to drive your Montana car rental around Glacier National Park with the 50-mile smoothly-paved Going-to-the-Sun Road crossing the Continental Divide. Be sure to charge your phone to take pictures because there are some astonishing views on Logan Pass where you will find the highest lookout point at 6,646 feet! Also keep in mind that there is an east and west entrance, not to mention potential road closures due to snow or other inclement weather. All in all, it takes about two hours without stopping to traverse the park with your own vehicle.

Pro tips for driving on the Going-to-the-Sun Road: start early, plan ahead, familiarize yourself with the route, and always be ready for sudden weather changes. There’s no set date for the Sun Road to be open, so it’s always best to check on the park website the day prior to arriving.
