Our guests love to tell us about the wildlife they see whilst visiting Glacier National Park. It is often a highlight of their stay and we LOVE to hear how you are enjoying our backyard! However, please be sensible. Caution is advised whilst exploring the area as these are wild animals and can behave unpredictably. Always pay attention to advice from Park Rangers and take good care out there!
Most animals will naturally avoid contact with humans – but some of our guests like to be prepared and choose to carry bear spray, especially when hiking in the more remote areas.
For our guests benefit, we follow an honor system with our bear spray. We have many canisters of bear spray at front desk available to our guests free of charge. This saves anywhere from $35.00 to $50.00 due to the fact that there is no need to purchase.
Don’t forget to pay it forward and let us have any remaining bear spray for the next guests to benefit.
