Perhaps one of the better known attractions in Montana, Glacier National Park, together with Waterton Lakes National Park (across the border in Canada) is a World Heritage Sight in northwestern Montana.

Glacier National Park is a nature lover's paradise, and apart from a handful of lodges and private inns, you won't find any towns, hotel chains or shops and stores. While the visitor's centers can get crowded at times, there are over a million acres of wilderness (not including Waterton Lakes, adjacent to Glacier on the Canadian side) to get lost in (but please don't get lost).
For more detailed information, see the National Park Service's page on Glacier National Park.

Sights and Activities

Depending on the season, you can find unlimited opportunities for hiking, camping, bird and animal watching, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, biking, boating, and horseback riding. If you don't have the time or ability to take advantage of these experiences, you can still take in the visual wonders of Glacier National Park by driving across the park on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which climbs right up the side of the Rocky Mountains.
