Why visit Glacier National Park and Yellowstone?
Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, meaning they have outstanding universal value for their natural and cultural heritage. They are also home to some of the most amazing landscapes and features in the world, such as:
- Glaciers: Glacier National Park is named after its remaining glaciers, which are slowly melting due to climate change. These glaciers have carved the dramatic mountain peaks, valleys, and lakes that make the park so beautiful. You can see them up close by hiking on trails or driving on the scenic Going-to-the-Sun Road.
- Geysers: Yellowstone National Park is famous for its geysers, which are hot springs that erupt periodically with steam and water. The most iconic geyser is Old Faithful, which erupts every 90 minutes or so. You can also see other geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles in various areas of the park, such as Norris Geyser Basin and Upper Geyser Basin.
- Wildlife: Both parks are rich in wildlife, especially large mammals such as bison, elk, moose, bears, wolves, and mountain goats. You can spot them along the roads or on trails, but always keep a safe distance and follow the park rules. You might also see smaller animals such as squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, foxes, coyotes, and birds.
