Blackfeet Tours offers family-friendly guided 2-day, 1-night trips to the sacred Badger Two Medicine area in the heart of the Rocky Mountain Front located near the southern border of Glacier National Park. Gain insight into the past way of life, which is significant to the deep-rooted heritage spiritually and culturally, of the Blackfeet Native Americans. We will hike or ride horseback to the Two Medicine River where you will break for lunch and learn how to set up a tipi. Learn about the tribal customs, histories, and stories while experiencing a land resplendent of wildlife, wildflowers, and spectacular scenery. Sleep under the big Montana skies. There will be plenty of opportunities to hike and explore with certified guides. If you wish, we will offer fly fishing lessons and provide you with the opportunity to fish at Kiyo Crag Lake or Badger Creek. The Badger Two Medicine awaits you with breathtaking panoramic views. Wonderful photo opportunities await! Get away from the crowds and explore the beauty of this vast landscape.

For hiking and mountain biking adventures, no permits are required unless you want to go fishing. If you want to fish, you will need to obtain a Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Fishing license

Foothills, valleys, and peaks dominate the landscape of the Blackfeet Reservation and the Badger Two Medicine Forest south of Glacier National Park. The Badger Two Medicine borders the renowned Bob Marshall Wilderness. For the Badger Two Medicine Backcountry Adventures, be prepared to hike, horseback ride, or mountain bike in steep mountainous terrain and through possible river crossings in various unpredictable weather conditions including snow and wind. The land terrain in Montana varies greatly from deep draws, coulees, and rock structures. We are careful not to take hikers, horseback riders, or mountain bike riders into areas that are any more than they can handle in terms of physical skills.

Poor planning and inadequate preparation leads to increased risks and dangers while hiking, horseback riding, rafting, and mountain biking. Being physically prepared is of prime importance. Consider bringing plenty of warm clothing that can be layered. Remember wild game animals live here. Be mindful of extreme changes in temperature and weather conditions. High altitudes and rugged terrain presents its own challenges. Animals including domestic horses and mules, and wild animals can be unpredictable and dangerous to hikers, horseback riders, rafters, or mountain bike riders; all beyond the control of the outfitter.

What an amazing business. Lee and I cannot wait to come and do a float trip with Alger. We were blessed to go on a tour with Alger and Jake Bash from Visit Great Falls. They are knowledgeable and just a joy to be around. They were accommodating to our time schedule and group. If you think of something you want to do outdoors I am sure that Alger can make it happen. Come enjoy the outdoors in Montana and spend some time with Blackfeet Outfitters.

Highly Recommended!

We rented a cabin after a complete camping fail nearby. Alger was unbelievably kind & generous to our group! He had everything set up & ready to go, even with our last second call for a cabin. He went above & beyond for us, & we'll forever be grateful for his hospitality! We highly recommend Blackfeet Outfitters & we cannot wait to go back! We felt like we left a friend, not a business owner, when we returned home! See you next trip Alger & all of our 4 legged friends!!

Wonderful Time!

I had a wonderful time on our 3 hour jeep tour on the Blackfeet reservation alongside Glacier National Park in Montana. Our driver and tour guide, Blackfeet tribe member Alger, was personable, friendly, accommodating and so very knowledgable. The scenery was gorgeous. Interacting with Alger felt more relevant and and authentic than the 6-hour Red Jeep tour run by Xanterra. I highly recommend this experience. Had I known that I could have stayed in a tee pee I would have done that as well.
