We are pleased to offer educational and affordable ecotours that include day trips and overnight all-inclusive adventures into the pristine Badger Two Medicine National Forest. As you journey into this sacred wilderness, learn from local certified interpretive guides who are tribal members of the Blackfeet Nation of Montana. Our guides will share their expertise in ancestral skills and traditional ecological knowledge of the Blackfeet Tribe of Montana. They will share an indigenous worldview of the wild lands of Montana.

You will enjoy either hiking in, riding by horseback, or mountain biking to the sacred lands of the backcountry. Hikers, we will pack in your gear and pack it out. For overnight all-inclusive ecotour adventures, we will provide tipis, camping gear (cots, sleeping bags with sanitary and laundered bag liners, pillow cases, pit toilet facilities, etc.), optional fishing gear, and horses. Bring your personal items and fishing license. Exceptional hearty and nutritious meals will be prepared fresh daily with strict sanitary food handling to avoid germ contamination and spoilage. We will accommodate any dietary requests. Blackfeet Outfitters will provide you quality service with everything you need to know in order to have a unique cultural experience.

Blackfeet Outfitters will take you through the best routes through the wilderness with the utmost safety in mind. This sacred Badger Two Medicine area is known as the “East side of the Rocky Mountain Front.“ The western boundary is the CDT, Continental Divide Trail, to the north boundary is Glacier National Park, to the south is the famed Bob Marshall Wilderness area, and to the east is the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.

The Badger Two Medicine is the backbone of our culture and is part of the Blackfeet creation story. The Badger Two Medicine has been designated a Traditional Cultural District under the National Historic Preservation Act due to its significance to and continued use by the Blackfeet Nation.
