Bikepacking under the Big Sky
Come experience the grandiose landscapes that Northwestern Montana and Glacier Country have to offer. Nights spent under the Big Sky are sure to leave you wanting more.
This tour will begin in beautiful Whitefish, Montana. Near the western gates of Glacier National Park, Whitefish, is a sleepy mountain and lake community. As you pedal east you'll encounter rugged mountains and dense forest. Dropping down from mountains will lead towards the North Fork of the Flathead River. Be sure to make a stop at the Polebridge Mercantile and Bakery, their huckleberry bear claws are something special.
Enjoy a night on the westside of Glacier National Park. Know as the Crown of the Continent, Glacier is a magical place with the most spectacular views. The turn-of-the-century Swiss style lodges provide visitors an inviting setting to enjoy a post-ride beverage. You may also enjoy the frigid waters of Lake McDonald after a long day in the saddle.
Headed south from Glacier you will follow a network of country roads on your way to the Seeley Swan Valley. Traveling towards Missoula between the Mission Wilderness and the Swan Range the route will follow along the legendary Great Divide Mountain Bike Trail. The tour will conclude in Missoula where local cuisine, music, and a plethora of beer awaits.
This bikepacking tour includes one indoor stay and six nights of camping. Meals are all included and will be had both at camp or at restaurants. All park fees or related permits are included as well.
Traveling backcountry in Northern Montana you are in Grizzly country and all precautions will be taken. Your guides have many years backcountry travel experience in bear country and will do their best to make you feel comfortable. The large wild animals of Montana need to be respected but not feared. We always recommend each individual carries their own bear spray while riding.
