A short flight to Missoula and private transfer will bring you to the start of your outdoor adventure. Your following week is going to be spent at The Ranch at Rock Creek, where 6,600 acres of the 19th-century dude ranch will become your playground. With so many activities included in your stay you will be able to do something new and different every day.

Such a large ranch in the USA is made for horseback riding. No matter your level, immerse yourself in the outback culture of western Montana. As well as riding, in the summer you can also enjoy a weekly rodeo watching the skilled cowboys show off their horse’s abilities. 

Take in the views from the summit of Paradise Peak and hike through the wildflower meadows, or put your skills to the test with archery, photography workshops, fat-biking and fly fishing, just to name a few.

For the younger generation, the Little Grizzlies Kids Club is the perfect outdoor educational programme with activities aimed at different age groups, from caring for the animals in the Barn to discovering the flora and fauna that can be found by the river. Themed days focus on different accepts of the Ranch from Ranch Life Day where they get to adopt a horse, ride it and take care, focusing on saftey, to Survival & Outdoor Safety Day, including shelter building, and fire making.

Find some time to relax with a dip in the hot tub, some pampering at the spa or a morning yoga class out in the fresh air.
