Gay Montana Adventure

Because of its stunning peaks, verdant valleys, and extensive trail system, Glacier National Park is known as the Switzerland of North America. In Glacier wildlife is plentiful. You'll spot for eagles soaring overhead, moose meandering in the river bottoms, mountain goats grazing in steep meadows, and bears wandering in search of berries. On HE Travel's multi-sport gay Montana adventure, experience this wilderness by hiking the alpine trails, horseback riding across the foothills, rafting on wild rivers, and mountain biking. All the while enjoy national park lodging, great food, and gay camaraderie.

Glacier National Park Gay Adventure Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Montana
Montana Glacier National Park Highline gay trailYou fly to Glacier International Airport in Kalispell, Montana and will spend the first night in Whitefish, a resort community near Glacier National Park. Explore the small town atmosphere and local spirit of this historic railroad town. Tonight you will meet your HE Travel trip leaders and fellow adventurers at our welcome dinner in downtown Whitefish. Welcome to Big Sky Country!

 

Day 2 - Logan Pass and the Highline Trail
Glacier National Park gay tour - wildlifeIn the morning we'll head east to Glacier National Park. The jagged peaks of the Continental Divide constitute the backbone of Glacier. Today, we'll explore Logan Pass with our private Glacier Guides. At 6,680 feet, we will experience stunning views of mountain ranges in Montana, Alberta, and British Columbia, scores of lakes, and the endless expanse of the Great Plains. While hiking along the Highline Trail, wildlife viewing is typically plentiful and we'll spot for hoary marmots, ptarmigan, and even mountain goats. Our home for the next two nights is St. Mary Lodge. In the evening relax while watching the sun set over pristine mountain peaks. When the sun goes down, soak in the star-filled Montana skies.

 

Day 3 - Hiking in the "Switzerland of North America"
Glacier National Park gay hikeFrom St Mary, we'll head to the Many Glacier area. From there, trails spur off in all directions. Take your pick on a self-guided day hike. Maybe Iceberg Lake? The Ptarmigan Tunnel trail. Oftentimes, hikers want to see a living glacier, so they will head to Grinnell Glacier. Perhaps you'll just want to relax at the hotel and enjoy the views of the mountains. Whatever you choose to do, you'll be surrounded by untouched beauty.

 

Day 4 - To East Glacier for Horseback Riding and the Grand Glacier Park Lodge
Glacier National Park gay tour - Two Medicine LakeAfter a leisurely start to our day, we depart Many Glacier as we drive south past St Mary and on to the original main gateway for Glacier National Park, East Glacier. For the first fifty years of the park, this was the first stop for travelers arriving from the east on their grand railway vacation, stepping off the train and walking up the flowered path to the stately Glacier Park Lodge, where we’ll stay for two nights. The highlights of Glacier Park Lodge are its manicured grounds, mountain views, and a grand, three-story lobby supported by more than 20 huge Douglas Fir pillars over 40feet high and about 40 inches in diameter Each evening around 9 PM, you can enjoy live music or talks in the hotel lobby.

This afternoon will bring us stunning views as we horseback ride along the ridges and valleys looking deep into Glacier National Park and its surrounding plains. Our outfitter has hosted riders of all abilities, so no worries whether you’re a first time rider or a lifetime equestrian. If you’d rather not ride, then your afternoon is free to relax at or get a massage at the lodge, enjoy the lodge’s heated swimming pool or play a round of golf at the lodge’s 9-hole golf course.

 

Day 5 - Two Medicine Valley
Montana Glacier National Park gay horseback ridingYet more Rocky Mountain beauty and fantastic hiking lures us to nearby Two Medicine Valley. Most hikes are accessed via a scenic boat tour, which we’ll do together. We’ll enjoy a relaxing cruise while listening to the Blackfoot Indian folklore surrounding Two Medicine Valley. Upon docking on the west shore, guests will have the option to either remain on the boat to return to the visitor’s center or step off the boat to access fantastic hiking trails. Hiking today is on your own, so you can hike as much or little as you like. About a mile up the trail is lovely Twin Falls, and you can continue another mile to Upper Two Medicine Lake. Longer hikes will take you to Cobalt Lake, No Name Lake, or all the way up to Dawson Pass. You can then catch a return boat or hike back to the visitor’s center.

 

Day 6 - Rafting on the Flathead
Montana Glacier National Park gay raftingToday, we embark on a rafting excursion on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. With class II & III rapids, depending on water flow, this float offers some mellow water as well as some more exciting rapids. If you have an interest, we may be able to run the rapids in two-person inflatable kayaks, which makes for more splashy fun. Afterward we’ll head back to Whitefish for our last two nights.

 

Day 7 - Zipline at Big Mountain Resort
Montana Glacier National Park gay trip - flora & faunaWe have a full day back in Whitefish for some well-deserved R & R. Take advantage of the lodge’s hot tub and spa, treat yourself to a massage, or do nothing at all. For those interested in more adventure, this morning features an exciting zip line tour through the trees high on the mountain at Big Mountain Resort overlooking Whitefish Lake. While flying, you’ll be suspended on long cables which are between 20 and 300 feet above the ground. The length ranges from 100 to 1900 feet long, the longest of any zipline in Montana! The afternoon is free to explore the town. Tonight we relive our week of adventure and say our goodbyes to new friends during our fantastic farewell dinner.

 

Day 8 - Farewell
Schedule your flights out of Glacier International Airport anytime. Happy Trails!

Trip FAQ

Where does the tour start and end?
This tour starts and ends in Whitefish, Montana.

If flying, plan to arrive at the Glacier Park International Airport in Kalispell by mid-afternoon on Day 1, in order to attend the Welcome Dinner.

For a unique experience, come by train! Amtrak has a station in Whitefish along their Empire Builder Route.

An excerpt from Amtrak's 2015 website regarding traveling by train in the Northernmost part of the USA: "Traveling daily between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest along major portions of the Lewis and Clark trail, the mighty Empire Builder takes you on an exciting adventure through majestic wilderness, following the footsteps of early pioneers."

If taking the train, check the arrival time carefully, and consider that you may want to arrive one day early, in order to attend the Welcome Dinner on Day 1.

 

What is the Activity Level of This Tour?
To hike with this group, you should be reasonably fit. Please be comfortable walking for four to six hours (with breaks!), over a mix of paved paths and unpaved forest or mountainside trails, most with some elevation gain and a few with exposure to heights. On most days, you will have the option of venturing off for independent hikes at your own pace and distance or you can remain with the group for the main hike. You’ll generally have no trouble finding a few others in the group whose abilities match your own. As listed in the itinerary, on all days but the rafting day, you have the option to pursue more leisurely activities from reading and relaxing in the lobbies of the grand hotels, to lovely boat cruises, or somedays you could join the famed Jammer Tours (let’s talk first) or the park’s shuttle system to visit sites not on our itinerary. On rafting day, you can chose to relax in a comfortable place instead of rafting with us.

We will also be taking an afternoon excursion on horseback, suitable for riders of all levels. Our invigorating whitewater rafting trip will be fine for most individuals, but will require some paddling.

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it's usually because they're looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn't have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you'll be traveling with friends. You don't need to pay the single supplement if you're traveling alone. We'll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.

 

Is there any camping on this trip?
No, we will be staying in hotels and park lodges.

 

What is the weather like this time of year?
Summer is the ideal time to visit Glacier National Park. Daytime temperatures are generally in the 70's and 80's. At the higher elevations the temperatures can be cooler. Usually in August, it is dry, but we prepare for rain just in case. In the evenings, temperatures can dip into the 40's. So bring a jacket for the nighttime. HE Travel will provide you with a complete packing list prior to the trip.

 

What about gratuities?
When a meal is paid for by HE Travel, we will also take care of the gratuity. You should budget $140-$180 for tips for the local guides (hiking, rafting, horseback riding, etc.) and your HE Travel trip director.
