Beartooth Mountains via Guided Tour

YNP Winter Tours

The Beartooth Mountains stand as the loftiest range in Montana, boasting numerous peaks surpassing 12,000 feet and offering a plethora of extraordinary hiking trails. For adventure seekers, the region presents pristine alpine lakes, stunning plateaus, and breathtaking vistas awaiting exploration. A highlight of the journey is the renowned Beartooth Pass, acclaimed as one of the nation's most picturesque drives. The road winds its way up a series of switchbacks along the Montana-Wyoming border, cresting at nearly 11,000 feet and affording a panoramic view of the "bear's tooth" formation from which the range derives its name. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife along the route, as sightings of marmots, moose, coyotes, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, grizzly bears, and black bears are not uncommon.

During your five-day family vacation, the choice of activities is yours to make. Whether you prefer an active itinerary filled with hiking and river rafting or a more leisurely pace with visits to local wildlife recovery centers, the possibilities are endless. Upon booking your tour, we'll tailor the activities to your interests.

Choose from challenging hikes leading to mountain peaks or serene lakes on the Beartooth Plateau, or opt for easier strolls through evergreen forests along riverbeds. Our hikes are customized to suit your group's preferences.

Horseback Riding: Embark on a horseback riding adventure with Elk River Outfitters, suitable for ages 6 and up. Traverse the plateau above town for sweeping views of the Beartooth Mountains and rolling wheat fields.
