Not only is it a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it’s also the world’s first International Peace Park, a designation earned by the collaborative agreement of the US and Canada in 1932. Glacier National Park is just 27 miles from Whitefish and is full of fall color! You’ll encounter beautiful Montana scenery and a landscape bright with fall, wildlife, hiking trails, and more to keep you busy and exploring in the fresh mountain air. There are 25 named glaciers and over 1,000 species of plant life in this unforgettable outdoor experience this fall that you can see. You can get out and hike or take a scenic drive through the area. Peak fall colors can be seen from late September to late October.

Guided Tour

While you tour through the fall colors of Whitefish, sit back and let someone else do the driving. Relax with your camera at the ready while on a guided tour of Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley. A knowledgeable guide will take you on a six-hour tour that begins in Whitefish. Depending on the tour group you choose, beverages and light snacks are provided as you explore Glacier National Park, Bison Range, and many other must-see places. You’ll capture breathtaking photos as you learn about the history and culture of the area. Sturdy walking shoes and layered clothing is suggested due to the weather and terrain. Make sure to check if park entry fees are included in the price of the trip before booking.

The Whitefish Trail

Gather your loved ones, lace up your hiking shoes, and pack your sun gear and water. Just outside of downtown Whitefish is the Whitefish Trail. The trail is enjoyed by walkers, runners, hikers, bikers, and even equestrians. Share the path that winds through over 40 miles of public and private lands of Whitefish and the surrounding area. The trail is made up of stacked loops, scenic overlooks, single-track trails, and gated logging roads, creating a journey like no other. You’re bound to see local wildlife in their natural habitat surrounded by fall colors, so make sure to bring your camera.

Whitefish Activities at the Big Sky Brews Cruise

Enjoy fall flavor and fun and soak in the Montana fall colors at the same time. Set out on a tasting tour of northwest Montana’s award-winning craft beer breweries. You’ll taste brews in Whitefish, Kalispell, Columbia Falls, and Flathead Lake. Load up your group and don’t worry about a designated driver, because part of the tour is reliable, safe transportation between venues. Go beyond the brew and add in visits to wineries, distilleries, and makers of hard cider and other spirits. Tours last about four hours and include three stops. Samples at each stop are included, as well as bottled water and snacks to soak up the alcohol between stops. This is a 21 and older event and you must present a valid ID.

Fishing

Anglers in the group will love a fall fishing trip in Whitefish and the surrounding area. Whether you go with a charter company or rent some gear and strike out on your own, you’re bound to catch your next big fish story.

If you charter, half-day excursions keep anglers busy for about five hours, while full-day trips will have them disappearing for up to ten hours. If you’re looking for an easy way to enjoy your catch for lunch or dinner at your rental, some charter companies offer to fillet, bag, and put your catch on ice while you continue to fish. Most charter boats fit three to five people, but you can rent your own craft or wander the shores on foot on your own.
