Day 1: Bozeman

Welcome to Bozeman! This Rocky Mountains town is the perfect jumping off point for exploring the history and natural beauty of Montana. Join your group at 10am for a Welcome Meeting then get ready to stretch your legs on a hike that’s easy on the legs and even easier on the eyes. Wave to kayakers along the trail as you join your leader for a stroll along the Gallatin River where mighty cliffs loom overhead and moss-covered boulders line the river banks. Stop to enjoy picnic lunch before following in the footsteps of the explorers Lewis and Clark and venture to the Gates of the Mountains on a scenic river cruise. You’ll sail alongside limestone cliffs to a set of towering stone walls which appear to open like a gate as your boat approaches. Little has changed since the two explorers first visited this stretch of the Missouri River and the region’s untouched beauty remains.

Day 2: Helena

After breakfast, hit the road to the Lewis and Clark National Forest where you will enjoy a hike and inhale the scent of the conifers as you stroll through woody valleys and admire high mountains and grassy meadows. After lunch we will continue on our way to Great Falls for our overnight stay. Tonight, enjoy a relaxing evening at your accommodation or perhaps share a meal together.

Day 3: Badger-Two Medicine region

After an early breakfast, hit the road and enjoy the scenery on the drive from Great Falls to Badger-Two Medicine. The Badger-Two Medicine region is located at the intersection of the Blackfeet Reservation, Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. Upon arrival we will have a traditional Native American lunch then have the privilege of joining a local Blackfeet guide for a half-day hike which offers an insight into the Blackfeet Native American people and culture and explores the secluded wilderness of Badger Two Medicine. Learn about tribal customs, histories, and stories while experiencing a land filled with wildlife, wildflowers, alpine lakes, and mountain peaks. We then make our way to Whitefish were we will base ourselves for 2 nights and our gateway to Glacier National Park. The evening is yours to enjoy as you please.

Day 4: Glacier National Park

Known as the ‘Crown of the Continent’, Glacier National Park offers an impressive array of activities for lovers of nature and the great outdoors. Here you can stroll past carpets of wildflowers, raft along rushing rivers, hike along mountain trails or admire the mountains reflected in crystal clear lakes.
