Summer Wilderness Pack Trips!
Early July brings with it Packing Season, the best time of year for fishing and taking in the majesty of the Montana wilderness.
The Mission Mountains and Bob Marshall Wilderness are home to some of the most beautiful and rugged landscapes in the country. Sights this remote and beautiful can only be seen by foot or on horseback—and we have the perfect wilderness pack trip to get you there. We use gentle saddle horses equipped with comfortable saddles that are custom fitted to each guest before we leave the corrals. After your breathtaking ride into camp, we will serve you a delicious, home-cooked meal and keep you comfortable with our camp accommodations.
Mission Mountain Wilderness Pack Trips
We are the only outfitter permitted to bring guests into the Mission Mountains and can guarantee some of the most pristine and wild scenery you’ve ever experienced, fabulous fishing and beautiful campsites near high mountain lakes. We offer 3-5 day pack trips into the Mission Mountain Wilderness.
Bob Marshall Wilderness Pack Trips
We also offer pack trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, which consists of over one million acres of untouched natural beauty. Our Holland Lake Trail can take you in several directions, depending on your taste. Do you want to take in high alpine camps, beautiful mountain lakes, or visit the South Fork of the Flathead River? Whatever you choose, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience. For the shutterbug in you, the scenery will have you snapping pictures at every turn. Along the way, you just might encounter mountain goats, bald eagles, bears, deer, elk, martins, rock chucks, badgers, chipmunks, and some ruffled and blue grouse. When you reach your campsite, you can toss your line into the waters where your skills will be challenged by cutthroat trout.
There are several trails that lead into the Bob Marshall, each one leading to awe-inspiring scenery and world-class fishing. We are lucky to have the only summer outfitter base camp on the South Fork of the Flathead river—an angler’s paradise. There are several different campsites on the South Fork of the Flathead River that we stay at for a day or two layover. We’ll take side trips to Charlotte Park, Pilot Peak, or Big Salmon Lake. Another day or overnight trip will take us to the world-renowned Chinese Wall, the epitome of natural splendor. We usually take a different route on our way home to the Holland Lake corrals, and arrive back between seven to eight days after departure.
If you are looking for a wilderness experience that the whole family will treasure, look no further. We are truly grateful for all of our repeat clients. Once you visit us, we’re confident that you will want to come back again.
