In mountainous western reaches of the United States of America, lie Wyoming and Montana, arguably two of the nation's most beautiful states. Wyoming’s claim to fame is Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, home to roaming wild bison and legendary geysers. In Montana, see the soaring peaks, alpine rivers, and expansive vistas. Book a luxury Wyoming & Montana holiday.
As you drive through Wyoming's vast wilderness, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to America’s pioneering era. Wyoming is America’s least populated state, and may lack glitzy cities but it offers plenty of breathtaking natural beauty. The Teton Mountain Range is the backbone of the state, and come winter, they offer world-class skiing at resorts like Jackson Hole. Scattered throughout the state, you’ll also find glacial lakes, sacred Native American sites, and ancient forests.
Most people come to Wyoming for Yellowstone National Park. Encompassing an enormous 3,500 square miles, you can hike through dramatic canyons, canoe on rushing rivers, or take advantage of natural hot springs like America’s largest Grand Prismatic Springs. See the many geysers spread throughout the park but the most iconic is Old Faithful, famous for shooting hot water 106 to 185 feet into the air roughly every 44 minutes.
During your stay, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like grizzly bears, wolves, and bison. Travel east to Montana, and explore the ice-carved landscape at the renowned Glacier National Park, fly fish in glorious rivers and lakes, or hike the Continental Divide. Luxury ski resorts are also a huge draw for visitors to this state, with the Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort and Big Sky Ski Resort promising plenty of pristine powder.
Wyoming and Montana are fantastic year-round luxury holiday destinations. Temperatures and weather vary widely throughout the year. Summer brings temperatures in the low 30s and sunshine, however, it's worth noting that night time temperatures, even in the summer, can be quite chilly.
Winter months see snowfall and temperatures of -10°C. When you visit will largely depend on how you’d like to spend your luxury holiday: if you’re wanting to ski world-class mountains, visit during winter. If you want to hike or canoe, come in the summertime.

You’ll also find plenty of wild game with dishes like bison or venison steaks and elk burgers. Meals at luxury restaurants are often served with sweeping mountain vistas. Head outside for sunset and relax on the porch with a warming drink in hand.
