Play in Gardiner

Best Activities in Gardiner MT

Gardiner, Montana is a great place to base yourself for part or all of your visit. This is the only entrance to Yellowstone that is open all year long. In the winter, there is no better base for wildlife watching. Roads are plowed and skiing/snowshoeing opportunities are abundant.

Spring, summer, and fall in Yellowstone offer so many possibilities! We offer guided hiking opportunities in Yellowstone National Park, and on many miles of trails in the Gallatin National Forest surrounding Yellowstone.

Go horseback riding with long-time local wildlife lovers at Specimen Creek Outfitters, or rafting on the beautiful Yellowstone River with our friends at Wild West Rafting. No experience necessary!

Whether you're a novice or a seasoned fly-fisher, contact Parks Fly Shop, one of the oldest fly shops in the state, for guided trips along the Yellowstone and Gardiner Rivers.

Just want to have some unabashed fun? Try our local zip line.

No matter the type of outdoor adventure you're looking for, Gardiner has it!
