We operate in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, mainly the Great Bear section, located in Northwestern Montana, just south of Glacier National Park. This Area encompasses thousands of acres centered along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains along the Continental Divide.
What is Wilderness?
The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex consists of The Great Bear, Bob Marshall, and Scapegoat Wilderness areas making it the third largest wilderness complex in the lower 48, over a million acres. This land was set aside by the Federal Government to be kept as close as possible to the untamed frontier. Nothing with a wheel or a motor is allowed. All travel is by foot or horseback, with the exception of a backcountry airstrip located in the heart of the Wilderness at Schaffer Meadows Ranger Station. We operate under permits issued by the USDA Forest Service that limits the number of guests we can escort through this unique area.
Base Camp is located forty five miles east of West Glacier, Montana. The Flathead Valley is accessible by air through Glacier International Airport (current airlines: Horizon/Alaska, Skywest/Delta, United, Allegient). By rail (Amtrak), and by auto (US Highway 93 and US Highway 2). You may also fly into Great Falls International Airport (Alaska, Allegient, Delta, United). There is also the option of flying directly into the backcountry via bush plane.
