Destination Montana

Big Sky Country

Montana has been described as one big nature reserve, unspoiled and home to many species of wildlife. Glacier National Park is perhaps the most beautiful of all, with glaciers, lakes and winding rivers threading their way through dense forests and glorious meadows. Yellowstone too is within reach of your holiday destination, via the 69 mile superbly scenic Beartooth Highway and, adjoining Yellowstone, the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness…with over 700 miles of hiking trails. Helena, with roots in gold and silver mining, is the state capital but Great Falls on the Missouri river is its largest city. Back to the flat prairies of the east, once home to vast herds of buffalo, where you can take a bus or self-guided tour of the battlefield near Billings where Custer made his last stand. If you’re longing to get away from the stresses of everyday life, lose yourself in the vastness of Montana – the Big Sky Country.
