Visiting the USA? There's never been a better time...
Begin with two of the world’s greatest treasures, the crown of the continent, Glacier National Park, where mountain goats pose in their home of unparalleled scenery, and Yellowstone National Park where primal geothermal forces gush out of the earth while bison graze. Next, fill the wide-open spaces between the parks with wilderness refuges, rodeos and festivals, soaring Rocky Mountains, vast prairies, rivers and lakes, art galleries, agricultural communities and modern cities, museums, elegant resorts and unpretentious ranches and abundant wildlife.
Beneath the vast blue sky, choose from a plethora of activities from whitewater rafting or river floating, downhill skiing, snowmobiling or snowshoeing, hiking, horse riding or mountain or road biking or worldclass lake and fly fishing. In the evening, soak in a hot spring pool beneath our stars, sip local wines or microbrew while dining on bison or burgers or relax with lemonade on a country porch. Year-round, Montana’s communities serve as gateways to days of adventure and an evening of relaxation. Explore our past, but enjoy the present. Follow the Lewis and Clark Trail, see the site of Custer’s Last Stand at the Little Bighorn, explore the ghost towns and old mining camps, experience a Native American powwow or follow the Montana Dinosaur Trail.
