Il Montana it owes its name, of Spanish origin, clearly to the geographical characteristic that distinguishes it, namely the presence of the mountains. Boundless natural wilderness, under an equally open and clear sky, Montana is a state where nature, patriotism and new age lifestyles coexist, alongside trendy boutiques and refined restaurants especially in the cities.

To the north, Montana borders Canada, to the south with Wyoming and South Dakota, to the east with North Dakota and South Dakota, to the west with Idaho. The capital of Montana is the city of Helena founded in the early 1800s. Montana is the fourth largest state out of all of the US by extension but has a very low population density.

The immense prairies, the lakes, the characteristic towns have been locations for numerous successful films, the most famous being those directed by Robert Redford, like "The Horse Whisperer".

Historical notes

Considering the riches of the subsoil, due to the numerous mineral deposits, Montana was a territory of conquest and conflicts between whites and native Indians, thus causing numerous and bloody battles. Only towards the end of the 1800s did tourism begin to take hold in this state, to then develop up to the present day and today be a cornerstone of the state's economy.

City of Montana

The capital Helena is a city full of cultural events and art galleries but on weekends the inhabitants spend their days in the mountains, depopulating the city center.

Missoula instead it is a very lively university city from an intellectual point of view, located along the course of a river, the mild climate enriches its outdoor life.

Bozeman it is a small town that from an agricultural center has been conspicuously enriched with the passage of time, transforming itself into a sophisticated and elegant urban center.


To describe Montana it is necessary to focus mainly on its natural characteristics, as nature predominates in a consistent way in the life of the whole territory and conditions its daily life.

In general, most of Montana is at about 1500 meters above sea level and agriculture is widespread, with numerous farms and ranches that deal with the breeding and cultivation of wheat. Montana is basically a huge natural park with forests and wild animals left free to roam.

Il Yellowstone Park and Glacier are the two protected territories of Montana. The Glacier Park allows you to see 26 glaciers, which in 1860 were as many as 150, as well as grizzlies, black bears, moose and other wildlife. There are also many Indian reserves of the Cheyenne and Blackfeet. You can also visit the largest lake in the United States, the Lago Flathead.

A typical Montana vacation includes lodging on ranches and long horseback riding in the prairies, escorting the herds to pasture.
