The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is one of the most spectacular natural settings imaginable. Though our 3 and 5 day trips are popular ways to sample it, a longer trip allows you gain greater access and more deeply explore it’s remote corners.
Having guided many guests into the wilderness on horseback, we know that most want access to real wilderness, using safe but active horses and a comfortable camping environment, good food and an itinerary that is active and fun but not too demanding.
For most of our trips, we operate our Montana Pack Trips out of wilderness ‘base camps’. We venture out in a different direction from camp each day exploring different parts of “The Bob” and we return to the same location each evening. Our base camps provide us with wall tent accommodations, outhouses, and even a hot outback shower! After a full day of activities you’ll return to the comfort of your own tent, “your home away from home.” We pride ourselves on providing an authentic backcountry experience.
Swan Mountain Outfitters is pleased to offer 6 day trips from our Swan Valley location which utilizes a base camp style accommodation. These pack trips are great for families, groups or friends that like to vacation together. You will experience outdoor living at its most comfortable while exploring areas unaffected by man. Join us for this authentic Montana adventure! View rates, dates, and availability with the buttons below.
If you are interested in an even longer trip (up to 9 days) or a roving style trip, in which camp is broken and packed along as you go, please visit our sister company Salmon Forks Outfitters which can offer those experiences (and also caters to serious anglers!). Salmon forks outfitters also access the Bob Marshall wilderness, but by using a different launch point they can reach other areas, such as the famous Chinese wall.
