The day we went was overcast making for a beautiful day. The Many Glacier Hotel is build on the lake and has some amazing views. The water was calm on the day we went, We saw Moose standing in the water and some bears on the other side of the lake. There is a cruise you can take to Lake... More

We did the Glacier Boat Tour from Many Glacier Hotel, and we really enjoyed it. We saw a moose splashing in the water, and several groups of people who hiked just before we got there ran into bears on the trails (they handled it well, so no worries).

Family had a fabulous time kayaking around the lake. Smooth water, snow capped mountains and wildlife made the kayaking perfect. The view from the balcony of the lodge is breath taking!

If there was only one cruise you would do in this region, I would choose this with the Grinnell lake hike. Very well organized tour with helpful and informative rangers. It takes about 4 hrs for the entire trip. Don't forget to use the restrooms at the center before you leave!

Many Glacier Hotel sets along side of this beautiful lake. Graniel mountain splits it in two, with mountains surrounding lake and hotel , wonderful views with bears and mountain goats in mountains..

Swiftcurrent Lake is like a gem set amongst the towering mountain peaks in the Many Glacier area. The views from the Many Glacier Lodge across the lake to Mt Gould and the glacier studded slopes of the surrounding mountains is one that I will not forget. Although there were intermittent showers we decided to take the 2.6 mile Loop Trail... More

This is about as good as it gets. We loved our time here and the meal we ate at the Many Glacier Lodge. I could spend days here just looking across the lake at different times of day. This was our favorite lodge of all of the ones that we went to while in Glacier. It is just a fantastic... More

If you get out on the lake before the wind picks up, you will be reward with an incredible reflection of the mountains on the lake. You can rent a kayak or canoe from the boat dock starting at 9am.

A nice easy walk around the lake with many entry and exit points. Very pretty, subject to wind action on the waves and frequented by ducks and canoests alike.

We took the swiftcurrent boat ride and then only the short hike before we returned to the lodge. There is a longer hike available with a guide. With a setting like this, there is no way that a TA review could be anything negative, this is one of the best locations in the park for visual treats. The boat ride... More
