MONTANA - uSA
7 DAY BOUTIQUE GUIDED PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR
( Limited To 8 Places Per Tour )
An ALL INCLUSIVE 7 day Boutique Guided Landscape & Wildlife Photography Tour of the magnificent state of Montana USA.
About Montana USA -
Montana is a rare place, where a person can slow down and enjoy the grandeur of nature and the old fashioned American West. With just one million residents spread out over more than 38-million hectares, it is one of America’s greatest unspoiled treasures of scenic lands and wildlife. And a mix of modern and traditional cultures make it the ideal place to experience the history of the frontier and authentic small-town American life.
Often called the “Crown of the Continent”, northwest Montana’s Glacier National Park is one of the most intact ecosystems anywhere in the earth’s temperate zone. More than 1,100 km of hiking trails and one spectacular drive across the continental divide on the 80-km Going-to-the-Sun Road offer glimpses of grizzly and black bears, moose, coyotes, bighorn sheep, elk, mountain lions and plenty of other wildlife.
But uncommon natural beauty is not confined to national parks. It stretches across the state, rewarding visitors who venture off the beaten path with 24 mountain ranges, millions of hectares of public lands and wilderness preserves, alpine lakes, wide open plains, natural hot springs and famous fly-fishing streams. Montana is a place where you can enjoy the magnificence of the natural environment by day and relax in the hospitality of charming small towns by night.
Along the highways that cross the mountains and plains are tiny western towns that have changed so little over the years that arriving for a festival can feel like stepping back in time. But whether visiting a town of 400 or a city of 40,000 (large for Montana!), one thing visitors are sure to find is truly friendly people who are willing to share their version of the good life through food, hospitality and the outdoors.
Montana’s mining history and cowboy culture come alive every day. And the seven Indian Nations and many Native American communities across the state work to preserve a history much older than the United States
Montana is natural wonders, charming small towns, friendly people and life at a slower pace—a land full of experiences that truly can’t be found anywhere else.
