Seeking advice for itinerary Waterton and Glacier National Park

Jump to last reply

I also posted this in the Montana forum, and hope it's not inappropriate to post here too.

I am planning a trip to Glacier National Park with my husband and 2 adult daughters in July. We are all in reasonably good shape but are not exactly long-distance backpackers. We love the outdoors and enjoy hiking and boating, but not to extremes (except for the whitewater kayaking my husband loves), and we have loved viewing wildlife on our other national park trips.

My daughter is attending a wedding in Kalispell, so we plan to fly in and out of Kalispell. I'm having trouble finding lodging, but the Prince of Wales Hotel has rooms available at the beginning of our trip (we like those old lodges), so this is the itinerary I have cooked up. Please share your opinion about this plan.
Day 1: Arrive in Kalispell around 1 pm (nonstop so less chance for problems I hope), rent a car and drive to Waterton. This looks like it's about 4 hours of driving, which is not ideal after a flight, I know. It should be a beautiful drive and we can make stops along the way.
Day 2: Stay 2 nights at Prince of Wales Hotel, touring and hiking the area.
Days 3,4,5: Stay near Many Glacier, maybe in a vrbo (suggestions welcome)
Day 6: Stay in Kalispell before leaving

I'm worried about that first day, but that might be our only chance for one of the old lodges on this trip. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
