Swan Mountain Outfitters is a premier, full-service horseback-based outfitter providing year round recreation. We offer guided hunting trips, guided fishing trips, summer pack trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness as well as trail rides and wagon rides in the Swan Valley.
We have access to thousands of acres of hunting areas in the Flathead National Forest, the Swan River State Forest and the famed Bob Marshall Wilderness. These areas support a number of elk herds and ample populations of trophy whitetail deer, trophy mule deer, color-phased black bears and mountain lions. We offer a variety of guided hunting trips for archery and rifle hunters alike, including traditional deer and elk horseback hunts in the backcountry and in the front range of the Swan Mountains either in outfitter camps or out of our Montana guest ranch. We can also offer guided moose hunts and goat hunts to those hunters fortunate enough to draw those tags.
Northwest Montana is renowned as a top fly-fishing destination in the US and this reputation is well deserved. Anglers from all over the world come here to fish for Rainbow, Bull, Brook and Native Cutthroat trout. We offer half and full day guided fly fishing float trips down the Swan River, fly fishing lessons and clinics as well as daily fly fishing or spin cast excursions throughout the Swan Valley. Several guests combine our wilderness pack trips with a mountain fly fishing adventure by focusing their pack trip in the Bob Marshall Wilderness on accessing native Cutthroat Trout in the ultimate wilderness setting. The richness of our surroundings affords us the opportunity to meet the needs of virtually every type of angler.
Our Bob Marshall Wilderness pack trips are three, five or six days in length and can accommodate beginner and advanced riders, alike. These pack trips are a unique way to combine camping, wilderness and wildlife viewing on a horseback vacation. Nestled at the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, our traditional outfitter camp provides an unparalleled setting for an authentic Montana horseback riding adventure. We pride ourselves in the quality of our Montana pack trips - from the meals to the staff to our incredible mountain horses!
Swan Mountain Outfitters offers everything from a two-hour horseback ride to an all day horseback ride, which includes lunch. Our most basic Montana horseback rides meander through huge old growth forests. However, if you ride long enough, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the Swan-Seeley Valley and the Swan and Mission Mountain ranges. We also offer wagon rides and a wagon ride and steak dinner combination which we like to call "Beef N Buggy". The wagon rides are a great option for families with children that are too young to ride or other groups that are interested in getting out and seeing the sights, but are not capable or comfortable doing it on horseback.
