Safety Adds Travel Confidence for Group Tours

As we head into the planning season for future group travel, safety is top-of-mind and tour operators are looking for new destinations and options for their clients traveling to places where they will feel safe. Western Montana’s wide-open spaces and outdoor recreational opportunities—as well as its rural setting yet ease of access with two regional airports in Missoula and Kalispell—play in favor of successful group tours. Visitors come to the region to experience the stellar attractions that include Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, Whitefish Mountain Resort, National Bison Range and the Garden City of Missoula, not to mention the river, lake and mountain recreational activities. We reached out to a few key hospitality partners in Western Montana’s Glacier Country to find out what kind of safety protocols they have instituted in their businesses to help build travel confidence and show that Montana is taking action to help ensure the health and well-being of everyone. What we found is that our partners are diligently communicating and working with the state of Montana and local health departments, scouring CDC guidelines and working hard to ensure visitor and resident safety at every turn.
