Sample Itineraries

  1. Main Destination: Glacier National Park
    You are picked up for a beautiful 30-mile drive to Glacier National Park. On the way to the park, we will drive along side the Great Flathead River. See it's great tributaries feed it with glacier fed water. Possibly stop at Hungry Horse Dam. Enter the top of the dam and go down 500 feet for a tour. Also view the reservoir reaching over 25 miles back into breathtaking mountains. Move on to enter Glacier Park. Waterfalls, jagged peaks, historic landmarks and wildlife all right outside your window. Drive along Lake McDonald. Maybe you would like to visit the famous Lake McDonald Lodge. Drive around Glacier Park, follow the wild and scenic middle fork of the Flathead River, stop at the Goat Lick, Bob Marshall wilderness trail-heads, and the Continental Divide. Going over Marias Pass, the views are endless. Cruise down the east slope where jagged peaks and open ridges spill out onto the prairie. This is prime grizzly bear habitat. Drive through Two Medicine country, land of the Blackfeet indian nation. View Glacier National Park from a perspective that most people miss out on. Maybe stop at Two Medicine Lake or St. Mary's Lake. You might want to go on a boat tour. Rocky peaks jet up from the prairie thousands of feet above the lakes. A variety of wildlife can be viewed. This excursion offers dramatic changes in elevation, vegetation, landscape, and culture. Everywhere is a photo safari. Many adventure possibilities.

  5. Spotted Bear Wilderness
    Somewhere at the end of 55 miles of dirt road is a beautiful spot, the Southfork River and the Spotted Bear River come together to create the most pristine swimming hole around. I know the fish think so! Walk on the swinging bridge, the crystal green Southfork River just below you. While traveling to and from Spotted Bear, drive along the reservoir created by Hungry Horse Dam, a creek around every corner, mountains as far as you can see. Any kind of wildlife may be seen. Stop wherever you want. Take a dip, wet a line, or go for a hike. This Montana excursion has many adventure possibilities.

  6. Swan River Inner Tube Float
    Float a portion of the Swan River on an inner tube. You are dropped off and picked up. Takes approximately 3 hours round-trip, depending on how long you stop to swim or fish. Float all day, pick huckleberries, swim, fish, and hike. There is always something to do.
