Itinerary

Sunday, August 14 (Dinner)

This morning we board our flight bound for the heart of “Big Sky Country,” Missoula, MT.  Upon arrival, we will check into the Holiday Inn Express for one night.  Dinner is included at The Montana Club this evening.

 

Monday, August 15 (Breakfast)

After breakfast we will check out of our hotel and depart for the Smokejumpers Museum in Missoula.  This fascinating museum will enlighten us about the procedures brave firefighters use when they parachute into blazing forest fires.  Our guide will take us on a tour of the Smokejumpers’ headquarters and share with us some of his or her personal experiences.  Driving northward from Missoula, we will make a stop at the St. Ignatius Mission, which was established by the Jesuits in 1854.  Scenic Flathead Lake is our next stop where we will visit charming Bigfork Village.  Here you can have lunch and shop in the many gift stores.  Mid-afternoon we arrive in Whitefish, MT where we will check into the Pine Lodge for one night.  This evening is free for you  to relax, explore Whitefish and have dinner in one of the many restaurants downtown.   

 

Tuesday, August 16 (Breakfast, Dinner)

Today we depart Whitefish and travel to Lake McDonald Lodge in Glacier National Park.  We will board the iconic red buses for a narrated, scenic tour along the amazing Going-To-The-Sun Road.  As much of the park’s scenery is vertically oriented, the roll-back tops are perfect for providing full views of the stunning mountains, and the area’s signature Big Sky.  We will watch for wildlife and stop at several points of interest during our 3-hour ride.  Afterward, we depart for Great Falls, MT where we will check into the Holiday Inn Express for one night.  Dinner is included this evening at Black Bear Diner.

 

Wednesday, August 17 (Breakfast, Box Lunch, Dinner)

Today we’ll drive southward to the Gates of the Mountains Recreation   Area for a cruise along a picturesque stretch of the Missouri River.  Mountain goats and other wildlife can usually be seen here along the rugged canyon walls.  A box lunch is included.  This afternoon enjoy a scenic drive through the Rocky Mountains to Big Sky, MT and The Wilson Hotel.  The lodge is situated in the heart of the pristine Gallatin  National Forest, along the shimmering Gallatin River and with the big Montana sky overhead.  With its idyllic setting and modern conveniences, The Wilson Hotel is the perfect place for our three-night stay.  Get settled in your comfortable room and relax before dinner.  This evening we’ll enjoy a Chuck Wagon barbeque at the nearby 320 Guest Ranch complete with good food, drink and lovely riverside setting.

Thursday, August 18 (Breakfast, Lunch)

Start off with a hearty breakfast before your day of fun begins!  This morning you have your choice between either a guided horseback trail ride through the National Forest or enjoying a scenic chairlift ride to the top of Big Sky Resort.  After lunch, choose between a whitewater rafting trip on the Gallatin River or a visit to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone.  After all the excitement today, take advantage of a relaxing evening at the lodge or get out and explore the shops and restaurants of Big Sky.

 

Friday, August 19 (Breakfast, Dinner)

This morning enjoy breakfast before we depart for Yellowstone National Park.  A short drive brings us to West Yellowstone, MT.  Here we will meet our local guide and begin our tour of the northern and possibly most scenic portion of the park.  This unique area of Yellowstone is only accessible to visitors during the park’s short summer season.  You will see the Norris Geyser Basin, Mammoth Hot Springs, the Upper and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.  Take time to have lunch and shop at Canyon Village.  By early evening we exit the park and will enjoy our last dinner as a group in West Yellowstone before returning to our lodge for the night. 

 

Saturday, August 20 (Breakfast)

This morning after breakfast we head to the Bozeman airport for our flight home.  We’ll be taking with us wonderful memories of our Magnificent Montana vacation!
