Summer Holidays in Montana
Montana is a state filled with variety. Rich in history, nature, culture, adventure sports and culinary treats, Montana is a state worth visiting in the summer shaping up as the perfect destination for a family vacation - one that takes you back to nature.

Located in the north west of the United States of America, Montana is America's fourth largest state and one of the most naturally beautiful ones. Montana is known for its mountain ranges and wildlife. In fact the name 'Montana' is derives from the Spanish word for mountain.


Vast natural and wildlife reserves, low population density, clean fresh air and an all-round back to nature feeling is what welcomes you when you choose to visit 'The Land of the Shining Mountains'. The scenery and culture are stunning and perhaps the best time to soak in all of nature's riches is the summer.


Family holidays in Montana

Montana is famous for its National Parks and two of them are a must visit - Glacier National Park and the ever famous Yellowstone National Park.


Glacier National Park is over a million acres of pristine mountain ranges filled with wildlife and flora that are unique to this region of the continent. A little over 130 lakes contribute further to the stunning beauty of this Park. Don't miss the Going-to-the-Sun road which is a highway that is a dedication to engineering and nature. Many who have traveled on this stretch of highway have felt that it almost defies gravity.


Restored buses and even wooden tour boats will make your experience at Glacier a traditional one, and there is always the hiking, a must do to truly discover what Glacier holds. Fishing is another time-honored recreation that brings many an avid fly fisher to the numerous water bodies in Glacier.


Yellowstone National Park needs no introduction. More than 2 million acres of forest, with 290 waterfalls, 300 geysers including Old Faithful which erupts every hour and more than 200 species of wildlife, makes Yellowstone an educational and relaxing place to vacation at. It is also the world's first National Park and is a place on earth where little has changed since it opened 135 years ago.


Montana - Back to the roots

Montana is also home to 7 Indian nations, each with their own rich history and tradition that is being preserved in the best way possible.
