We all love bluebird days, and if you’ve spent much time in Glacier, you know we get plenty of sunshine. But, we’re in the mountains, and the weather can be fickle. Unexpected rain (or snow) can happen any time of year, so one of our FAQ is: What is there to do on a rainy day in Glacier National Park? Let us tell you!
5 Reasons Why A Rainy Day in Glacier National Park Is Actually Really Great!
1. Whitewater rafting Glacier National Park in the rain is just as much fun as rafting in the sunshine.
A lot of people think that rafting is only an activity for sunshiny days, but that’s just not true. The bottom line is that you are gonna get wet either way, so a little rain isn’t going to take away from the experience! If your Montana trip involves a rainy day in Glacier National Park, round up the troops and come rafting with us! Splash gear and river booties are always included in the price of your trip. You’ll be wet, sure, but also warm and happy!
2. Hiking in the rain is a blast.
There are lots of advantages to rainy day hiking. The trails aren’t crowded, the plants and vegetation are more vibrant, and the mountains look beautiful partially shrouded in misty clouds.
3. Glacier National Park is known for its waterfalls, and there’s no better time to see waterfalls than when it’s raining.
4. Rainbows and mountains are a match made in heaven.
As the saying goes, you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain, so we don’t mind an occasional rainy day in Glacier National Park.
5. Rainy days are the perfect time to explore indoors.
No one comes to Glacier National Park to stay inside, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t lots of really neat places to visit indoors. You could easily fill a day or more exploring the historical lodges, visitors centers, and museums in and around Glacier National Park.
Montana weather can be unpredictable, but there’s still plenty to do in any weather, so if it’s a rainy day in Glacier National Park, I’ll see you out there!
