Paws Up Resort, Montana

Everything about Montana is big. The sky. The outdoors. The ranches. The steaks. And biggest of all is the choice of adventures you’ll have at Paws Up Resort.

Think of Montana and you think of vast skies above huge landscapes. You think of great herds of cattle worked by cowboys on horseback. Mountains and mighty rivers, untamed nature and a world of adventure.

Make Paws Up Resort a fixture on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the USA and you’ll be riding horses through mountain streams, rafting along torrential rivers, bouncing along in horse-drawn buggies, going on safaris and – at the end of the day - eating enormous barbecued steaks. Before retiring happy to the deep comfort of your grand cabin or luxury tent.
