Swan Mountain Llama Trekking offers visitors to the Crown of the Continent an opportunity to do something totally different on their vacation. Guided llama treks are for families, groups, or clubs that want to add something unique and novel to their Montana vacation plans.
Hiking with Llamas – Strong and gentle, quiet and agile, llamas are the perfect companion for a pack trip into Montana’s Glacier Country. With their padded feet, cleanliness, calm nature and ability to browse on a variety of vegetation, llamas have no more impact in the high country than a deer. Alert and surefooted, these beautiful Andean natives tote our gear with ease as we meander along the Swan Divide of the Flathead National Forest, a spectacular ridgetop trail with endless views of three surrounding wilderness areas, the Continental Divide and Glacier National Park.
Experience an unforgettable vacation with nature providing the real memories: a sunset silhouetting peacefully grazing llamas; swimming in crystal-clear mountain lakes; napping in alpine meadows carpeted with wildflowers; being awakened by a curious deer; sledding in mid-summer snowfields; jumping into a waterfall pool; fishing for scrappy rainbow trout; feasting in a trailside huckleberry patch; glimpsing mountain goats, an elk herd or a soaring eagle.
Llama treks can be customized to meet your needs. For hikers that want to see the area, but don't want to ride a horse or carry all their own gear, these trips are ideal. Swan Mountain Llama Trekking is the only llama trekking company in the Crown of the Continent!
Swan Mountain Outfitters operates under a US Forest Service permit and instructors teach the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic.
Types of Experiences and Trips Provided
Select from a variety of daily llama treks or specialty llama treks including: wine and cheese evening llama treks, clinics on packing llamas, and half-day or full-day llama treks.
Guests can also reserve a multi-day guided llama trekking trip including ridgetop hiking & alpine lakeshore camping. Overnight llama treks spend each night in a cozy campsite by one of the many alpine lakes which dot the area. Montana’s long summer evenings (it is light until 10:30 p.m.) give the ambitious plenty of time to climb a nearby summit to watch the sun set, while others can stroll around the lake or sit by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate or brandied cider.
