“Wonderful Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We took the trail around Swiftcurrent Lake which is about 2.6 miles. Even in the mist, the trail was wonderful.

Take bear spray since bears are plentiful at Glacier National Park.

“Two boat rides in one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The first trip we wanted was sold out when we arrived so we opted for the next trip. They were giving the option to go on standby but we didn't think that many seats were going to magically open up so we just opted for the next tour and spent some time inside the Many Glacier Lodge. The lake is rather small and then you take short hike up a hill and down the other side to Lake Josephine. The captains do a very nice job narrating during the trip and we enjoyed the sights.

“Beautiful Lake with Boat Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We were at the Many Glacier Hotel which is on Swiftcurrent Lake. We decided to take the boat cruise which takes you to Lake Josephine and then on to the trail head for a hike to beautiful Lake Grinnell. All three of these lakes are gorgeous! After the hike we got on the boat at Lake Josephine which took us back to Swiftcurrent lake and back to the dock. It was a great way to spend the day.

“Swiftcurrent Nature Trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The nature trail was a wonderful hike around the lake. It is not handicap accessible, but it is an easy walk with little to no elevation gain. We saw a moose and calf! It was just a beautiful walk, totally work the couple of hours we spent!

“Sit looking out at the view or paddle on it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was an amazing stop, we enjoyed two days of wondering around this area, having meals at the Many Glaciers Lodge, beers while sitting on the porch, watching a black bear on a hillside nearby. I taught my daughter to fish by renting a canoe and paddling around the lake for a couple hours. Wonderful time.
