Montana is the epitome of The Great American West – a vast, unspoiled landscape just waiting to be explored. With only 1 million residents and more wildlife than people, Montana gives new meaning to the phrase “wide, open spaces.” From the soaring peaks of the Rocky Mountains in the west with their pristine alpine lakes and meadows, to the rolling plains and dramatic badlands in the east, Montana offers boundless opportunities to explore its stunning scenery, enchanting wildlife, rich cultural heritage and small-town charm.
The Great Outdoors in Four Seasons
Bozeman’s proximity to several mountains, forests and lakes means visitors have outdoor adventures galore. Custer Gallatin National Forest is an expansive wilderness near Yellowstone National Park. Mountain climbing, hiking, fishing the lakes and exploring plateaus, basins, canyons and valleys are all recreational options here – when you aren’t busy photographing the bear, elk, deer and other wildlife. Just 70 kilometers away, Big Sky Resort, the largest such resort in the USA, gives skiers and snowboarders a chance to blast through powder in winter (in summer, go zip-lining, whitewater rafting or horseback riding).
Explore the National Parks
Montana is home to some of the most well-known parks in the country, two of which include Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. However, there are many other hidden gems worth exploring! In fact, Montana has a total of nine National Park Service areas. Explore everything from historic battlefields to natural wonders across all corners of Big Sky Country.
If you’re looking for a classic road trip experience, take the historic Highway 89 Route, which connects some of the most spectacular national parks in the Western USA. This route begins with Glacier National Park and ends in Yellowstone National Park and covers approximately 580 kilometers from start to finish.
A must-stop visit along the way is Giant Springs State Park, one of the largest freshwater springs in the country, which explorers Lewis and Clark marveled at back in 1805. Just a short hike from Giant Springs, you’ll catch breathtaking views of the Great Falls and the hydroelectric dam. After a day of exploration, be sure to stop at the Sip ‘n Dip Lounge to hang out with the mermaids for a drink.
Exciting Outdoor Adventures
Montana is known for some of the best rivers, spring creek and lake fishing in the country, and once you visit, you’ll quickly understand why. With meadow, canyon and valley sections, the rivers offer diverse scenic backdrops and one-of-a-kind fishing opportunities. If you’re interested in fly-fishing, the Gallatin River in Yellowstone is the place to go! Anglers from around the world travel to the 125 kilometers of the free-flowing river.
Hiking in Montana is a great way to explore the state while experiencing the surrounding nature and wildlife. If you want to explore the gorgeous glaciers, spend the day hiking Grinnell Glacier. Here, the trail takes you past lakes, cliffs and alpine meadows and offers possible glimpses of wildlife along the way.
Biking is another must-do activity for anyone looking for a good outdoor adventure. From challenging rides to a cruise that’s fun for the family, there are plenty of biking excursions to pick from. Take a road bike and cycle through the charming small towns or mountain bike across the extensive wilderness. However you choose to bike, you will not be disappointed.
