The Flathead Valley is composed of lakes, green meadows, lush timber, quaint towns and awe-inspiring views of the Mission and Swan Mountain Ranges. These mountain ranges burst from the valley floor and reach heights of 10,000 feet above sea level and act as guardians of the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park. These guardians with snow-capped peaks, green meadows and lush timbered slopes protect a world lost in time and untouched by mankind. Naturalists refer to this wild and scenic area as the “Crown of the Continent,” which touts the most intact ecosystem in the “Lower 48.”
