The Clark Fork River flowing through downtown Missoula

Nestled in the Northern Rockies of Montana, surrounded by seven wilderness areas and at the confluence of three rivers, Missoula is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. You can kayak, raft or tube through downtown or take a relaxing hike in 60,000 acres of wilderness minutes from your hotel. Missoula is known for its blue-ribbon trout fishing (made famous by A River Runs Through It) and spectacular natural beauty.

Once here, you not only can explore the town, the University of Montana, the more than 10 local breweries and tasting rooms, you also have a base for day trips to some of the most stunning outdoor locations in the U.S.

Destination Missoula — the official visitors bureau — has information about day trips you can do to:

Yellowstone National Park

Glacier National Park

The Bitterroot Valley

The Blackfoot Valley

The Seeley Swan Valley
