Great Lodges Of The National Parks

Glacier Lodges

Season 1, Episode 3 of 4

This episode features three lodges and a smaller mountain chalet in Glacier National Park, high in the mountains of northwestern Montana. Glacier Park Lodge, with its massive three-story atrium, is modeled after early Christian basilicas in Rome. Lake McDonald Lodge, smaller and more intimate, is like a rustic hunting lodge nestled on the edge of a deep-blue glacial lake. The most Alpine of the park's lodges, Many Glacier Lodge, is perched in a glacial cirque immediately below three glaciers and two walls of jagged rock. Newly re-opened after years of renovation, the elaborate hiking huts at Sperry Chalet reward horseback riders or hardy trekkers at the end of daylong backcountry hikes.
