Montana is a wonderful mix of ranchland and untamed wilderness. It takes in part of Yellowstone National Park and all of the wild Glacier National Park stretching up to the Canadian border. In between the natural beauty you will find friendly small towns many of which hold their own rodeo, country fairs or festival. Fix your holiday dates around one of these to get a glimpse of life in the West. Helena, the state capital, has had a chequered history much of which is reflected in its spectacular 19th-century mansions and restored pioneer dwellings.

Why should I visit Montana?
Glacier National Park.
“Crown of the Continent” is in the north western corner of Montana and merges with Waterton National Park in Canada. It is wild, dramatic and utterly beautiful! Think jagged peaks, glaciers, glorious lakes, mountain goats and bighorn sheep and you are dreaming of Glacier National Park. It is also one of the least visited parks and there is not a lot of accommodation so it is really important to book early. Hikers will love the park but driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road is a “must-do” too.
TIP - Montana is sliced in each direction by two major interstate freeways, but for a glorious drive and to see the best of Montana, do take highway 89 which conveniently connects Glacier National Park with Gardiner at the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
Montana is known as Big Sky Country because you can see for miles in any direction with views only interrupted by the white peaks of the Rocky Mountains. It is farming and ranching country and if you would like to incorporate a week on a ranch into your holiday please visit our sister company www.americanroundup.com who have a huge selection of working, guest and dude ranches to choose from. We offer some short stay ranches where you will get a great feel for life in the west.
Yellowstone National Park
You will find information on the park in the Wyoming section. However, three of the five entrances to the park are in Montana; West Yellowstone, Gardiner and Cooke City. West Yellowstone has the most accommodation; staying in any of these towns provides better value than staying in the park itself but remember that travel within the park is very slow.
