As an in-house writer for Off the Beaten Path, a good chunk of my day is spent researching travel destinations – reading magazine articles, perusing traveler reviews, gaining insight from travelers’ blogs, and speaking with locals. And whether I’m writing about Sedona, Steamboat, San Francisco, or Silver City (New Mexico, in case you didn’t know), […]
At the spot where Montana and Canada’s British Columbia and Alberta meet, you’ll encounter one of the wildest, most biodiverse, intact ecosystems in the world. Here, in the “Crown of the Continent,” you’ll be swept away by the beauty in glacier-carved mountains rising from lush, green valleys, pristine glacial lakes, milky blue wild rivers, and lots of wildlife roaming their natural habitats. This wild country beckons you to take to the trail, so don your hiking boots and go forth!
While hiking reigns on this adventure, additional activities are in store, like a full-day whitewater adventure on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. You’ll also take a boat cruise on Waterton Lake, and choose from resort activities in British Columbia’s mountain town of Fernie. In between, hike, hike, and hike – and we guarantee, the trails and scenery will never get old!
Travel days are exciting too, taking you across Glacier National Park on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, a winding ribbon of spectacular beauty. Cross from Montana into Alberta, then British Columbia back into Montana as you explore both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border.
A variety of one-of-a-kind lodges await each evening, each in excellent locations, including a cabin accommodation, small inn, a national park hotel, and a small resort.
Come experience the true crown of our continent and the beautiful, wide-open, big sky country that straddles the United States and Canada.
