What to Pack

National Parks of Montana & Wyoming

Glacier, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone National Parks are known for their craggy peaks, deep forests, alpine lakes, blue and white glaciers, and a wealth of wild animals; which explains why these three National Parks fall within the top ten visited each year. The summers are pleasant with temperatures ranging from mid 80’s during the day, to mid 40’s at night. Perfect for hiking, biking, fishing, or just touring in your car. Let us help you prepare for your trip.

Pack the Right Stuff for your Trip to Montana and Wyoming

Mid-day to Midnight Temperature Swings

From day to night, the temperature can change drastically. Be prepared for these shifts with light-weight, easy to carry, layering pieces.

Here Comes the Sun

While some of the areas you visit will have plenty of shade, others will not. Help reduce the glare from the sun with a pair of sunglasses and a brimmed hat.

Packing Tip


Merino wool is lightweight, keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather; it can also be worn for days without being washed

World Class Hiking

Hiking at higher elevations usually requires more water intake to keep your body balanced. It’s always a good idea to pack snacks as well, just in case you get delayed and need some sustenance. Here are some pack suggestions for hydration with room to carry other essentials.

Picnic in the Park

Picturesque picnic areas are scattered throughout the Parks. Bring food and snacks in an insulated pack to keep your rations cool and fresh until you’re ready for a relaxing picnic break.

Wind Blows

The east side of Glacier National Park experiences downslope winds up to 50mph or more. These wind breakers will help protect you from the chilly winds.
