beautiful scenery
Jun 2019
we took the boat tour in this lake, you can also go there by hiking. The water color in this lake is beautiful, and you can see some glaciers during the boat tour in this lake, from the end of this lake, you can hike to Grinnell lake. it takes about an hour to hike to to Grinnell lake from this lake.

Awesome experience!

We had reservations (an absolute must!) to take the 2-boat rides and rode across this lake. We took the 2 pm tour that came with a free guided tour after the second lake, and our guide was really good! We then crossed a swinging bridge (very calm and easy, about 5 feet above the river so not scary for anyone!) and we saw a moose! Grinnell Lake was so beautiful and we loved that!! It was only a 10-12 minute hike after the second boat ride. On the way back some of us decided to skip the boats and walk back on the flat trail back to Many Glacier Lodge. Very easy and fun!

We took the boat tour from Many Glacier Hotel on Swiftcurrent lake then had a short hike through the woods (easy and beautiful hike) until we came to Lake Josephine. One of the best adventures we took. Absolutely stunning views and very serene. Loved it.

moose with a baby, deer with babies, grizzly bears and black bears
Sep 2018 • Friends
My husband, a friend and I crossed Lake Josephine on a boat tour. At Lake Josephine, we saw a moose with a baby, deer with babies, grizzly bears and black bear. The boat tours leave below the Historic Many Glacier Hotel, crosses two lakes and cost about $28 for adults. The Grinnell Glacier trail starts at the west side of Lake Josephine. Highly recommended.

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

We took a boat ride from Many Glacier Hotel on Swiftcurrent lake and Lake Josephine. Roundtrip, its 1.5 hours--but great views. We even saw bears in the mountains on Lake Josephine. You can also opt to walk around Lake Josephine.

Favorite Spot in GNP
Aug 2018
Not easy to pick a favorite part of the GNP, much less a favorite location, but the views at Lake Josephine were so beautiful that this location would get my vote for best spot to spend lots of time. Easy access, and on a calm day, would be nice to explore the lake via a kayak.

Your gateway to Grinnell Glacier
Aug 2018 • Friends
Take the boat ride from the lodge in Many Glacier and be on the lookout for grizzlies as the feed on the mountain side. Then when you put in at the landing hike just a mile around the lake or 4 miles up to the glacier and 4 miles back for an awe inspiring trip to one of the National treasures in the USA
