Since most of Montana's dozens of protected wilderness areas and forests lack roads, one of the best ways to explore is by horseback. We recommend the guidance of a licensed outfitter. If you're up by Glacier National Park or the million and a half acres of rugged, isolated backcountry known as the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, call Swan Mountain Outfitters; they'll take you on a five-day ride-and-fish pack trip to some of the most remote lakes and streams in the state. If Yellowstone is your target, join Wilderness Pack Trips, located in Emigrant, just north of the Gardiner entrance to the park. Their trip into the park's Thorofare region—called by some the most secluded place in the Lower 48—is a nine-day ride of uninterrupted wildflower, elk, moose, bear, and wolf viewing. If you can't coutenance a week's worth of saddle sores, both outfitters offer dazzling one-day excursions as well. Neither outfitter has a standard two- or three-day itinerary, but they'll happily plan something for you if you call a week or so in advance.
