FAQs on Montana

  • What’s the best time of year for holidays in Montana?

    The best time to go on a holiday to Montana largely depends on the activities you’re interested in. If you plan on hiking, wildlife watching, and exploring the natural parks, spring is the best time while the weather is still mild. 

    Summers in Montana usually reach around 28 degrees, creating the perfect conditions for camping, fishing, and water sports.

    Finally, for winter sports enthusiasts, Montana transforms into a snowy paradise from December to March. This season is perfect for skiing and snowboarding, especially at popular ski resorts such as the Big Sky and Whitefish Mountain Resort.

  • What’s the best way to get around Montana?

    Navigating Montana requires some planning due to its vast size and relatively sparse public transportation network. Renting a car is the most flexible and convenient way to travel across the state. It allows you to explore at your own pace and access remote areas off the beaten path that public transport can’t reach.
