Hiking and Backpacking Trips Trek the Terrain on a Guided Trip

Trek the Terrain on a Guided Trip

Good old-fashioned hiking is one of the most intimate ways to explore Big Sky Country. Touring the terrain by foot allows you to get up close and personal with nature—feel the ground, explore the flora and fauna, spot wildlife tracks and guess who made them, stop at a creek and hear the trickle of the glacial water or the tune of a songbird, and breathe in the crisp alpine air. All this and more, not to mention the beauty of the vast landscape beyond what’s right in front of you.

Take the Ride of a Lifetime

Discover some of the West's best highways, byways, backroads and small towns by motorcycling from Glacier Country to Yellowstone Country. Plan your trip with a free Montana Motorcycle Guide.

Take a guided wildflower or natural history day hike in the Seeley-Swan and Blackfoot valleys, or, for a longer adventure, we have outfitters who specialize in backpacking trips into Glacier National Park and stock-supported hiking trips into wild country like the Bob Marshall Wilderness trails. A pack string carries your food and gear for you so you can just focus on the beauty of the nature around you. Our wilderness-savvy guides are all very knowledgeable about their surroundings and love what they do.

If you’re ready to head off the beaten path with a guide who knows everything there is to know about being off the beaten path, here are some outfitters ready to take you on a trek.

Recreate Responsibly Plan Ahead, Play it Safe, and Leave No Trace.
