This active cultural adventure weaves together the story of a people and a place as we witness the annual powwow of the Blackfeet Nation and hike in the grand landscapes they have called home for 10,000 years. With drumming, singing, and spectacular dances, the Blackfeet Powwow blends both the old and new traditions of a proud culture. Trip Leader Melissa Scott has spent significant time on the Blackfeet reservation and gives us an insider's access as we feel the intensity of the celebrations. Afterwards, we hike Rocky Mountain trails in Glacier National Park and savor stunning Montana sunsets. Overnights are in historic national park lodges.

With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.
Level 1 – Easiest
Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.
Level 3 – Moderate
Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.
Level 5 – Strenuous
Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.
