There are times when we are able to go on a fun and exciting adventure and spend as long as we wish, or even a week or more exploring the national parks, sights, and attractions that lie within an area’s borders. However, there are other times when perhaps the calls of adult life are too strong to head off for such a long time, and instead we can only visit for a few days. Even if you are only able to come for a little while, you can still enjoy all that can be found in Whitefish. Read on and discover all there is to find and see on a three-day Whitefish, Montana vacation!
Day 1: Explore the Outdoors
One thing that Whitefish has no lack of is ways to explore the great outdoors. For instance, one can head on over to Glacier National Park and discover 700 miles of trails to explore. You’ll find a variety of animals that occasionally come out to say hello, such as mountain goats, big horn sheep, elk, and many others! One could also head on over to the Flathead National Park, which features lovely scenic hikes fit for all skill levels, and which you’ll find is a tad more secluded and quieter than the ever-popular Glacier National Park. You’ll also find berry picking during certain times of the year, so not only hike the beautiful trails but enjoy fresh berries to dine on along the way. One could also head over to Whitefish Lake State Park, which features all your favorite lake activities, from boating to swimming, water skiing, and fishing. You’ll also find a large number of hiking and biking trails. There’s plenty to explore on a vacation in Whitefish!

For instance, one could head on over to Rock Climb Montana, which features tours perfect for either those who have never dangled from a cliff face before, to advanced excursions that will truly test your skills. Enjoy tackling Stryker Rock, Kila Rock, Koocanasu, or go for a custom tour and see what you truly want to. As well, one could take to the skies with Backcountry Flying Experience and enjoy a memorable time as you soar high above and gaze down at the breathtaking foliage of Glacier National Park. One could also take a bike tour with Bicycle Touring, which features a variety of tours that will have you seeing some of the most breathtaking views the area has to offer from Northern Tier, the Great Divide, Great Parks North, and many more! End it all off with a trip to Big Sky Brews Cruise, where you can proceed to tour the various breweries that call the area home. You’ll not only get to sample four brews from each stop but will also get to tour the facilities and get a crash course in Beer 101 if you might not be quite a connoisseur yet.
Day 3: Explore the Town
While the outdoors is one of the biggest draws of the area, you’ll also find that the City of Whitefish has just has many exciting adventures as the forests which surround it.
