Hidden Gems: Butte to Glacier National Park Itinerary

In April 2023, Western Montana’s Glacier Country hosted the Northwest USA Spotlight pre-FAM in partnership with the Butte Chamber of Commerce and Discover Kalispell. Participating tour operators visited the communities of Butte, Polson, Kalispell and Charlo, as well as Glacier National Park, before attending the NW USA Spotlight Conference in Missoula sponsored by Destination Missoula. One tour operator stated it was the best FAM they’d been on in 37 years in the industry. With that in mind, we wanted to share the hidden gems and highlights in this itinerary. Consider pairing some of these destinations and attractions on a tour itinerary from Yellowstone National Park to Glacier National Park. Highlights of the itinerary include time to experience the colorful history of the town of Butte, American Indian history and culture experiences, iconic sightseeing stops with views of the Mission Mountains and Flathead Lake, plus Western experiences. There's so much to do and see between Yellowstone and Glacier national parks—your groups or FIT clients will love this off-the-beaten-path itinerary.
