My husband and I took the long boat tour which went around and across Swiftcurrent. We then walked across about 1/4 mi to Lake Josephine. The boat tour continued across that lake and then we hiked about 2 miles to Grinnell Lake which is fed by Grinnell Glacier. It was well worth the tour and the hike.

Trailhead starts at Swiftcurrent Motor inn parking lot. It is easy walking with not much gradient. It's Bear Country & better carry the spray. Lake is very nice & enjoyed the serenity.

We celebrated St. Valentine’s with my girlfriend in this beautiful lake in February this year. We stayed for 3 nights at the Many Glacier Hotel and it was fantastic. The view over the Swiftcurrent Lake is stunning especially at dusk. There’s something magical about this place. You may rent canoes and kayaks from the dock.

A beautiful very deep lake. Crystal clear water. The mountains come down straight into the water in places. Many Glacier hotel is on the shore. They rent canoes and kayaks. There are wooden boat cruises.

Many Glacier Lodge on Swiftcurrent with the mountain in the background was gorgeous. They picked the perfect spot for this historic lodge. It looked the best early in the morning when the lake was like glass. There are hiking trails around the lake and a boat tour across the lake and on to the next lake.

The Many Glaciers boat ride starts in this lake. It's a very pretty lake with nice views of the mountains. The boat ride was a quick way to get across the lake and save on some hiking for those with weary legs. You may even see bears or bighorn sheep from the boat. We did.

We hiked and did the boat ride. Recommend both. Looks like the Inn would have Amazing views if room on lake side.
