Imagine the sun is shining, there isn't a cloud in sight, it is a perfect 75-degrees, and around each turn in the road is a view more beautiful then the last. New West Experience will take you there- and will make sure that you experience the unique small-towns and stunning scenery that Montana has to offer.
Our small-town road trips are not about going back into time to see America the way it 'was,' namely because Montana is generally very progressive and well educated- we just do not have a lot of people. Our small towns are not about halting progress- but they are about halting the problems generally created by rapidly growing populations. In Montana you can pull up a bar stool and quickly make a new best friend- no matter where you are from. In our small towns one's word still means something and a welcoming hand will be extended to neighbors and visitors alike.
Montana small-towns are not about the way life once was- they are about the way life should be.
New West will aid in the preparation of itineraries to take you to the best of these unique towns, to stay in locally owned accommodations, and to dine in those secret spots. Planned packages start at $50 per person per day.
Summer in Montana is rodeo time. Mid-June kicks off the season with some of the smaller town events and the season (and ticket winnings) increase as the summer progresses. For all of you city-dwellers out there, a Montana rodeo is an experience not to be missed; and a wonderful excuse to get out of dodge for a weekend.
New West Experience will do the leg work for you depending on the time of your available travel. We will sort out which rodeo to go to and will provide everything you need to enjoy Montana like a local. Cheap beer and parade hot dogs not included.
Total Price: $500 for two people, $750 for four.
Even in Montana the fish can be moody, and the best way to maximize a fly-fishing trip in Montana is to be flexible and go where the fish are. New West Experience in partnership with Phasmid Rentals and Bozeman Rental Cars is able to provide the local expertise, cars, and gear to make an off-the-cuff trout bum tour a complete success. This is a trip for moderate to experienced anglers who are willing to be flexible with their itinerary- and to camp. Nights in motels/ hotels/ lodges can be incorporated and itineraries will change to keep up with current conditions. All of our prepared itineraries are completely custom to clients wishes and where the best fishing is.
Day 1: Arrive Bozeman Airport, BZN. A member of the team will great you at the baggage claim and shuttle you back to headquarters. At the office, we will go over all maps, itineraries, rental gear, and rental car. Pending the time of your flight arrival, hit the grocery store for the weeks rations and catch the evening hatch on Gallatin, East Gallatin, Jefferson, or Lower Madison- all within 30-minutes of the office and airport.

New West, paired with Phasmid Rentals, is offering an early season special for a car camping/ DIY Montana one week tour capitalizing on off-season rates. Although June often has a bit more rain then July, the wildflowers and rapidity of growth more than make up for it. Combined with approximately 70% less other tourists than in July/ August, this can make for a very special time of year.
