Never a dull moment

Bigfork is a township located west of Glacier National Park at the point where Swan River and Flathead River flow into Flathead Lake. It's a small community with big ideas and with a 27-hole golf course, a theater and a calendar chockfull of events. From your Bigfork vacation rental you can head off into the wilderness for some outdoors shenanigans, but, if that's not for you, there are plenty of things to do in town. On top of all that, Bigfork has some very alternative activities for the whole family.

Things to do

Culture, art and cocktails

You'll never be short on things to do if you stay in a Bigfork vacation rental. The town has a summer playhouse with performances 6 nights a week and Broadway musicals featured at the weekends. Bigfork Festival of the Arts, held every August, is a celebration of local artists and craftsmen with live music and judged competitions. For the kids, Ravenwood Outdoor Learning Center takes the whole family on adventures in nature, with expert guidance. Alternatively, for something distinctly more grownup, head to Whistling Andy Distillery to sample Montana grain moonshine and bourbon cocktails in their tasting room.

Activities

Llama treks and winter thrills

It's not just fishing and rafting, fun though they are – Bigfork prides itself on coming up with something different. How about taking the whole family llama trekking in the hills? Guided tours from a couple of hours to multi-day treks with lakeside camping are a perfect way to explore this part of Montana. Alternatively, you can have a go at clay shooting to perfect your aim for the real thing. In winter, snowmobile tours offer thrill seekers the chance to race up Desert or Crane Mountain to catch the sunrise or sunset with a beautiful panoramic view of the valleys.

Weather

An event for every season

Montana is undoubtedly best appreciated in the summer months, when the weather is at its best and tours are in full swing. That said, there is so much going on in the vicinity of a Bigfork vacation rental that taking the opportunity to nab a discount during the spring or fall can be an attractive proposal. The winters may be cold, but, after browsing the antique shops and art galleries, you can always dive into one of Bigfork's fine restaurants, before returning to your vacation rental to cozy up by the log fire.

Natural features

All creatures great and small

Montana boasts an impressive array of wildlife species, both big and small. Within easy reach of your Bigfork vacation rental are national parks offering the chance to spot large predatory animals like the grizzly and black bear, packs of wolves and the seldom-seen mountain Lion. The 125,000-acre Flathead Lake is home to many species of fish, including cutthroat, bull and redband trout. Hunters are drawn to the parks around Bigfork for the chance to stalk white-tailed deer and mountain grouse in season. Whatever the weather or time of year, there is always something to see.
