Glacier National Park is famous for its remnant glaciers (rapidly disappearing) and the lakes and valleys they have left behind.

The park provides diverse outdoor and adventure features, including hiking, climbing, fishing, camping, and scenic car touring.

It is connected to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, on  the US-Canadian border, with Waterton a national park on the Canadian side.  Together they were designated as the world’s first International Peace Park in 1932, became Biosphere Reserves in 1976, and in 1995 were listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
