GLACIER NATIONAL PARK

The rugged mountains of the surrounding area are made up primarily of hard metamorphic and igneous rock. There are over 400 glaciers found in the park as a result of abundant snowfall. Glacial movement has formed numerous cirques, arretes, tarns and hanging valleys. The Nakimu Cave system, which is the third longest in Canada, is located in the park and may be accessed by applying with the park superintendent.

LOCATION
The Glacier National Park is located 57.6 km (36 miles) west of Golden and 45 km (28 miles) east of Revelstoke by way of the Trans Canada Highway.
