Vast, unspoiled, and wild, “Big Sky Country” represents the very best of the American West. Rugged cowboys still saddle up to ride at ranches and wow crowds at rodeos. Ghost towns, state parks, and a one-of-a-kind Dinosaur Trail preserve a dazzling array of historical treasures—and offer opportunities to hunt for fossils and gems. Seven Indian Nations celebrate the state’s rich American heritage and traditions. Scenic train, float, and driving trips retrace the routes forged by explorers Lewis and Clark.

Montana is the perfect place for road tripping. There are miles and miles of open roads. The landscape is stunning and varied. And its towns are welcoming and alluring, with imaginative hotels, restaurants, and breweries operated by friendly locals. Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks are the crown jewels, but the Big Sky state is filled with hundreds of equally awesome playgrounds in which to mountain bike, trail run, hike, raft, fish, horseback ride, and learn about the region’s rich history, dating back to the days of the dinosaurs. And that’s just in summer. Come winter, the state turns into a wonderland. The skiing and snowboarding are world-class, and the state offers up everything from snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to snowmobiling and hot springs. Among Montana’s star attractions are ten national forests, hundreds of streams, tons of state parks, and historic monuments like Little Bighorn Battlefield and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Whether it’s a family-friendly hike or a peaceful river trip, there’s an experience that will recharge your spirit around every corner in Montana.

Indian Country Guidebook

A northwestern state of breathtaking mountain ranges and rolling prairie lands, scattered with colorful wildflowers and golden wheat fields, and set with scenic backdrops of bright blue skies, Montana is a dream destination for unforgettable experiences and outdoor fun. Home to seven Indian reservations and the state-recognized Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians, there is a total of twelve tribal nations that are either federally or state recognized in Montana. The seven federally recognized tribal nations have been granted tribal sovereignty, which means they have the authority to govern themselves, with some limitations. These tribal homelands have miles and miles of unspoiled landscapes with sweeping views and hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. We encourage you to journey off the beaten path to explore unique sights, buy local authentic arts and crafts, taste Native American cuisine and experience the splendor and beauty of the tribal nations across Montana.
