Say goodbye to the heat and lazy days of summer and hello to fall with an end-of-summer Labor Day celebration trip to Whitefish. Whether you’re here for the long weekend or can stretch out a few more days of rest and relaxation, you’ll have plenty to see, do, and experience that’s fun for everyone. Enjoy indoor and outdoor activities that will satisfy everyone in the group throughout your stay this Whitefish Labor Day.

Glacier National Park

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 fun this Labor Day. You’ll encounter beautiful scenery and landscape, wildlife, hiking trails, and more to keep you busy and exploring while you breathe fresh mountain air this Labor Day. See 25 named glaciers and over 1,000 species of plant life in this unforgettable outdoor experience this fall. You can get out and hike or take a scenic drive through the area. Keep in mind the park may be busy over the holiday and plan accordingly.

The Whitefish Trail

Gather your group and prepare to hit the trail this Labor Day. 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 meanders and winds through over 40 miles of public and private lands in Whitefish and the surrounding area. The trail is made up of stacked loops, scenic overlooks, single-track trails, and gated logging roads to add up to a journey like no other. See local wildlife in their natural habitat.

Flashpoint Outdoor Laser Tag

Enjoy fun for the whole family, and an outdoor experience this Labor Day. This local and women-owned business provides fun laser tag experiences in the great outdoors of Whitefish and the Flathead Valley. The two-hour experience takes place in the heavily wooded areas around the location, which include plenty of natural obstacles. Come prepared for outdoor battle with closed-toed shoes, long pants, and long sleeve shirt to protect against sun, bugs, and foliage. Don’t wear anything you don’t want to get dirty! COVID-19 precautions include sanitized equipment for each participant and CDC-recommended distancing. Call for reservations.

Guided Tour This Whitefish Labor Day

While taking yourself and your group on a tour through the beautiful scenery of Whitefish and the surrounding area is a great idea, you might want to sit back and let someone else do the driving. Take a guided tour of Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley. Your knowledgeable guide takes you along 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 in the area. Keep your camera at the ready to 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.


Anglers in the group will love to spend some time on the water. Whether you go with a charter company or strike out on your own, you’re bound to catch your next big fish story. You’ll fish the waters of Flathead Lake and Whitefish Lake for lake trout, or head to Lake Superior in search of whitefish. 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. Don’t forget to dress in layers and bring your sun gear, snacks, and water.
