Best Montana Ranch Vacations
Upon stepping foot in Montana, it will become abundantly clear why this great land is known as “Big Sky Country.” Simply gaze upward and you’ll be treated to a rolling sea of blue, sometimes dabbled with cotton ball clouds, sometimes painted by the otherworldly rays of the sun. But it’s what’s under the sky that makes this jewel of the West truly remarkable. Featuring 77 ranges within the Rocky Mountains, wildflower-dotted prairies, and the infamous Yellowstone National Park, Montana offers so much natural splendor to explore. And what better way to explore than saddling up and trotting across the terrain on horseback? If you’d prefer to stay on your own two feet, this rich state offers countless activities, including: mountain-side hiking, fly fishing, and canoeing. Channel your inner cowboy at the following Montana ranches, which interweave the Old West and modern accommodations.
