It's small size and having a boat ramp make it a great place to throw in the SUP, kayak or what we craft you have at the end of a day of hiking. It's a beautiful, quiet area with few people and some great views.

We took a boat tour of the lake, then hiked across a small hill to another small lake (Johnson, I think). After touring that lake, hiked back to our hotel. Relaxing couple of hours.

Swiftcurrent Lake is right at the Many Glacier Lodge. It is absolutely breathtaking and worth driving to! There is a small falls near there as well. We just sat in awe of the beauty and watched the lake. Very peaceful!
