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.
Sled the best of the West in the unreal landscapes and premier small towns between Glacier and Yellowstone national parks. Plan ahead, play it safe and tread lightly.
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.
Level up your guided hiking trip with a paddling adventure from Bitterroot Backpacking. Packrafting combines backpacking and rafting using an individual-size packable, inflatable boat called a packraft. Let your guides carry the rafts, paddles and PFDs while you hike to a scenic alpine lake.
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.
