we took boat ride on the "International" to goat haunt on the montana side of the lake. the cost was $45 canadian per adult. beautiful surroundings- a glacial lake with mountains all around it and the prince of wales hotel at the top. so amazing.

We loved the Waterton National Park-much nicer than the Glacier side of the park. The Parks Canada rangers were WAY more accommodating than the park rangers in Glacier-they really seemed to want to help you. The ones we encountered in Glacier seemed like we were bothering them. We had a hike led by Dylan who did an excellent job and... More

Beautiful lake in a beautiful area. Be sure to take the boat ride to Goat Haunt. You cross from Canada back to the US then back again. Very cool to see the International Border.

our trip from Glacier to Waterton and back ... one of the best scenic drives we ever did. This lake was gorgeous. Wish we could have stayed longer and done some trails. so very pretty.

We did the 7:00 boat tour and it was very nice. Didn't see any animals but the beauty around the lake was enough. Our guide was very good and was easy to talk with. He provided knowledgeable information about the area and made suggestions to other things to see in the town. It was a 2 hour ride.

Stunning area, the views all around here were absolutely amazing, real picture postcard scenery. Waterton itself is a beautiful town to visit.

This is the scenic route around the hamlet of Waterton in Waterton Lakes National Park. It takes roughly an hour to walk around the route but it is very enjoyable. There are majestic views in the distance.

It is not for nothing a UNESCO World Heritage. One can spend hours and hours just admiring the lake.

A beautiful lake to stroll around within the townsite. It is quiet and serene with minimal boat activity. The pebbles, stones and sticks can be just a child's delight by the water's edge. There is a small cove near the marina that is great for families for swimming (although the water is chilly), paddle boarding (there is a paddle boat... More

This was a great spot. Animal viewing from the car, bears and such. Walking trails and day activities. Well worth the drive if you are visiting Glacier.
