Around Montana

Montana comes from the Spanish word for mountain and was first applied to the territory in 1864.

States neighbouring Montana are: Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota and North Dakota. Montana also borders Canada.

Montana By Air:
Sightseeing tours from various airstrips around northern Montana. The month of September is the best time to visit. The crowds are gone and the weather can be beautiful.


Old Faithful is the most reliable of the Yellowstone geysers, with eruptions occurring every 37 to 93 minutes, depending upon the duration of the previous eruption.

Yellowstone National Park:
The largest and oldest national park in the United States is best-known for its more than 3,000 geysers and hot springs.

Yellowstone Net:
A hearty welcome to the Big Sky Country.


Bozeman is the seat of Montana State University and Montana's gateway to Yellowstone National Park and other tourist areas.

National Parks and Monuments in Montana

Glacier National Park

Scenic driving and wildlife viewing along the Going-to-the-Sun-Road. You can't get lost.

The best time to visit Glacier National Park is either before July 4th or after Labor Day. However, if you must visit during the height of Summer, as most people do, try to visit on the weekdays as crowds are significantly lower.

Another tip is to visit Glacier National Park earlier in the season (before late July), since all the snow and waterfalls in the park at this time make for absolutely stunning scenery.

Little Big Horn

The Little Big Horn National Monument, formerly known as the Custer Battlefield National Monument, is 60 miles south-east of Billings, off I90.

It was here, on June 25, 1876, that lieutenant colonel George Armstrong Custer miscalculated the size of Crazy Horse's Sioux encampment and made his last stand; falling to the ground with 264 of his men.

White stone graves mark where the US soldiers gave it their last.

Fishing in Montana

Big Sky Fishing:
Anglers can research all major rivers and many lesser-known ones, obtaining helpful fly fishing and floating information about each. An extensive photo gallery of each river and lake is provided, allowing the visiting angler to better understand and visualise a particular river or lake before planning their trip.
