This is the ultimate glacier country vacation package. Spend 6 nights in a hotel and one overnight llama adventure. Then add whitewater rafting on the Flathead River, a handful of activities at Whitefish Mountain Resort including a zipline tour, alpine slide tickets, and a ride on the scenic chairlift, as well as a sunset horseback ride with a scrumptious dinner.
You'll still have plenty of time to explore the area (and Glacier National Park) on your own.
Kintla Lodge hotel rooms have one queen bed. Amenities include underground parking, elevators, wireless internet, a large hot tub, mountain and valley views and a shared lounge area. Heated ski lockers for each unit.
Half-day whitewater trips offers the perfect opportunity to get a taste of adrenaline while sampling phenomenal views of Glacier National Park without having to commit your whole day. The 2.5 hour trip takes place on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and begins amongst the eye-popping vistas of Nyack Flats before flowing through the exhilarating whitewater of John Stevens Canyon. As you embark from shore your guide will give you detailed safety info and paddling instruction. Once you'??ve had a chance to hone your paddling skills on a couple miles of easygoing current, the river narrows and the fun begin on rapids like Tunnel, Bone Crusher, and Jaws.
Enjoy 2 hours of exhilarating fun zipping through the trees while harnessed to a cable extended between two towers.

Swan Mountain Llama Trekking is pleased to offer guests an overnight llama trek that can fit into anyone??'s tight vacation schedule.
Guests need to arrive at Swan Mountain Ranch at 8:30am on day one for their overnight guided llama trekking adventure. Once everyone has arrived, we will give a llama orientation and trail safety speech. Then everyone will be piled into our llama trekkers van, and we will drive with trailered llamas in tow to the trailhead for Bond Creek in the Flathead National Forest. Upon arrival, we will unload guests and llamas, pack up our lunch provisions, our overnight gear, and head out onto the trail.
Guests will be treated with killer views of the Swan Valley and the expanse of the Swan and Mission ranges, and can look across into the famed Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. We will trek a comfortable 3-5 miles distance, until we reach one of our many camping spots to set up for the evening. Your professional llama guides will set up camp while you enjoy the scenery, fish or perhaps take a peaceful mountain top nap. The guide will prepare a sumptuous dinner, and if permitted by the Forest Service, will build a camp fire for guests to enjoy while the cleanup of the kitchen is wrapped up.
Many guests like to take an after dinner stroll or fish, read a book by the feigning mountain light or sit around the fire sipping hot chocolate or your favorite trail libation. In the morning we'??ll have a hearty breakfast and take an early morning hike to explore the area. Guests can stay and fish, climb a mountain peak, or whatever they feel like; after all it's your vacation!
Right after a picnic smorgasbord lunch, the guide will pack up the llamas and lead the trek back down to the trailhead. Once done with our hike, we'??ll head back to Swan Mountain Ranch and have you on your way by 5:00pm.
If there is something you would particularly like to do on an overnight llama trek, please ask, as we have the ability to customize all of our llama treks to suit the needs of our guests.
On this late afternoon/early evening excursion you will enjoy a relaxing trail ride out to the perfect picnic location, a beautiful meadow surrounded by mountains. You'll feast on a delicious cowboy steak dinner with all the trimmings. After dinner we'??ll relax by the fire and cook up s'??mores. Then when were ready we'??ll mount up for the quiet ride back home!
This area of northwest Montana is often referred to as "glacier country" and is filled with a rich abundance of wildlife due to the high concentration of protected wilderness areas in this part of the state.
