Hiking with Llamas in Montana


Swan Mountain Llama Trekking is a one-of-a-kind hiking experience in the Flathead National Forest in Western Montana and makes for an absolutely enjoyable day.

What is Llama Trekking?

Llama trekking is simply hiking along a trail accompanied by a pack of llamas. The llamas carry your lunch, snacks, and equipment in for you as you enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the gorgeous backcountry.

Llama Trekking Options

Swan Mountain offers several llama trekking experience options. Each will ensure you have just as much time as you’re comfortable with.


Half Day Experience

The roundtrip 4.6-mile hike begins after a short drive to the trailhead in the Flathead National Forest. This 3.5-hour trip includes a waterfall hike, lunch and a rest.


All Day Experience

The All-day Llama Trek hike takes guests along winding paths and over Bond Creek in the Flathead National Forest. Pick berries, enjoy the waterfall and lunch.


3-Hour Evening Trek

The evening dinnertime llama trek is an ideal date night option for adventurous hikers. Cheese, wine and chocolate are served by the creek after hiking out on the Upper Bond Trail. 



If you’re seeking a more immersive llama trek experience, consider one of three overnight trips. Multi-day llama treks include all meals and fishing and/or berry harvesting along the trail.


- Dress in layers - Bring a day-pack with you!  - Wear comfortable hiking boots or sneakers, the trails can be rocky!
