Adventure Travel Vacations in Montana


For adventure travel vacations in the US, Montana is an excellent choice. Because of the presence of Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park, Montana is a haven for ecotourism activities. Adventure travel vacations in Montana can include hiking, mountain biking and camping in this protected land and seeing a plethora of wildlife, including the majestic bison. Indeed, bison range touring is one of the more popular activities that vacationers opt for when undertaking adventure travel vacations in Montana.

Your hikes can take you through pristine natural habitats, next to wilderness hot springs, and across glaciers thousands of years old. You can horseback ride, go on horse pack and float trips, go ATV riding, snowmobiling, or cross country skiing. For the lovers of the sport of fishing, there are many vacations that include lodge-based fishing where visitors enjoy rustic cabins, fresh, home-made food and organized fishing trips to catch Montanaís own Westslope Cutthroat trout. Many of these lodges also organize wilderness backpacking trips. You can try canoeing or spice it up a bit and go white water rafting.

For those who feel like they need a little bit more hands-on experience, many adventure travel vacations in Montana offer cattle drives and working ranches. Get ready to roll up your sleeves on this type of adventure! Youíll be moving cattle, doctoring to the animals on the ranch, fixing fences, and checking on the herd. Some ranches organize calving and branding activities, roping arena activities, hunting excursions, and rodeos. Itís not all work, though, and visitors can enjoy evening sunset horse rides, dancing two step or just sitting around the fire telling tales, just like real cowboys and cowgirls. This option has become popular with families because it opens up communication channels, especially between children and adults, instills a sense of teamwork and gives children and adults alike a broader perspective on life. Other ranches may require a little less participation in everyday duties and offer other activities such as chuck wagon barbecues, horse drawn hayrides, and snowshoeing and dog-sledding in the winter.

For the history buff, there are a number of history tours, canoeing and trekking tours along Lewis and Clark trails, visits to ancient Indian rock art sites and pioneer homesteads.

To explore all your options in the case that youíre contemplating one of the many adventure travel vacations in Montana, you can first turn to the Internet. Take a trip to the library or bookstore for travel publications and donít forget to check out reviews on the particular adventure or agency on which youíve got your eye. Whatever the particular trip you choose out of the many adventure travel vacations in Montana, the memories will last forever.
