Montana and Yellowstone National park are perfect locations for the serious birder. Just outside of Bozeman, experience one of the largest raptor migrations in the world. Witness droves of migratory waterfowl in the fall, or a bald eagle scooping a cutthroat trout out of a recently thawed lake in the spring. New West is here to help point you in the right direction.

There are numerous excellent resources for providing formalized birding tours in the area ranging from Montana Audubon to small, private companies/ individuals. Although we are happy to recommend and organize formalized trips, we also encourage our guests to simply get outside with their binos and enjoy. Montana boasts incredible concentrations of raptors and migratories- all set with a backdrop second to none.

 

New West Experience is proud to offer our exclusive Glamorous-Camping "Glamping" packages. Through our experience at providing similar opportunities around the world and our passion for living well out-of-doors, we are able to provide a completely unique experience in Montana.

Imagine a five-course meal under the Montana sky prepared by your own private chef, with 'tent' accommodations as comfortable as any fine hotel. All of our Glamping excursions are bespoke to each guest's wishes. We do not have fixed locations, each night of Glamping is set up and catered specifically for each guest. We host our nights on both private ranches and on public lands- regardless, we guarantee an evening that will not be forgotten in a location second to none. 

Prices are dependent upon location and desires of our guests, but generally range from $450 per person, per night. This is a perfect opportunity for those seeking something completely different, and very special.

Whoop it up with a Montana rodeo short-break

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.

Package includes:

  • 1- night at the Silver Forest Inn, best room available. 
  • 3- day rental of a Subaru Outback
  • 2- night rental of our 'car camping' package. Everything you need to pitch tent at a festival without having to worry about driving anywhere.

Total Price: $500 for two people, $750 for four.

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.

Fly-fishing in Montana and Yellowstone National Park is certainly on any serious angler's bucket list. Wild trout abound in our seemingly endless waterways, coupled with liberal water access laws, offer the angler unparalleled opportunities. New West Experience is able to assist anglers interested in staying at elite fly fishing specific lodges, booking daily guided trips through our network of experienced professionals, or in the planning of do-it-yourself fly fishing adventures.

New West Experience owner, Will Casella, has spent over 10-years working at elite fly fishing lodges around the world- and has come back to live in Montana for one main reason- the fishing is that good. There are of course the classic rivers; the Madison, Big Hole, Big Horn, Beaverhead, Jefferson, Yellowstone, Missouri, and the Gallatin that produce memorable days. However, more often than not, the best angling days and Montana experience come from the not so famous rivers and lakes- the places nobody is willing to talk about- and that is where New West will get you. 

At New West, we all fish, and we keep a finger on the pulse of what is going on around the state. Although there are likely more wild trout in the state of Montana than pretty much anywhere else in the world, they can still be moody especially on the larger more famous waterways. We have found that the best way to fish Montana is to be flexible and mobile. Rather than staying at a lodge and getting locked into a waterway for your stay, we encourage anglers to move to where the fish are eating.

The main difference when planning a trip with New West versus many of the outfitters or a lodges is that we truly emphasize quality of experience. If a bumper-to-bumper float trip down the Madison drifting indicator rigs is what you want- we are not the company for you. If enjoying spectacular scenery in the company of good friends (or alone), and maybe catching a fish or two is what you seek- then we can help you out.

Camping in Montana- comfortably!

The best way to truly experience Montana and Yellowstone National Park is to sleep under the stars. Perfect summer nights and countless public campsites and back country opportunities abound. New West, through our partner company Phasmid Rentals, is able to provide assistance and rental gear for inexperience car camper to the die-hard backpackers.

Phasmid provides everything you need for a Montana camping adventure. Tents, sleeping bags, pads, cots, camp furniture, cooking kits, coolers, optics, guidebooks, maps, and fly-fishing equipment (Simms waders and boots, Outcast float tubes, etc). Phasmid is also the sole provider of rental bear spray in the Bozeman area.

New West Experience is able to incorporate Phasmid's services and rental gear into all of our prepared itineraries and packages.
