Go with the right professionals.

Guided activities and guides are abundant in Montana and Yellowstone. Most are good, few are exceptional. Reduce your risk of getting a bum and wasting your money, and let New West Experience utilize our extensive network of trusted professionals. We understand that a guided trip isn't just about catching fish, going on a horseback ride, or rafting down a river. To us, is about the total Experience. Enjoying stunning natural surroundings enhanced by the services of a true professional. A professional who understands the ecology and history of the area. A professional who is intelligent and a pleasure to be around. A professional who will likely become a long-lasting friend and will create an unforgettable day.

Let New West take the burden and risk out of booking your guided adventures.

The unique wildlife, topography, and geology of Montana offer a photographers paradise. New West is able to assist your itinerary planning whether you are professional or amateur. We know the off the beaten path spots, current conditions, and have the passion as well to ensure that you take home that perfect shot.

New West specializes in DIY photo safaris. Although we know and recommend a few specific companies that specialize in guided photography tours, we have found that with a little advice and an adventurous spirit a photographer can get the chance at the shot that few others have. We share our passion for getting off-the-beaten path with others- an attribute that few other tour companies are willing to do.

Our services for DIY photo safaris revolve around each individuals desire and taste. Prefer scenic shots, old barns, Yellowstone geo,thermals, small rural towns, working ranch life, wildlife, or birds? We can get you there like none other.

New West Experience is proud to offer our exclusive Glamorous-Camping "Glamping" packages. Through our experience at providing similar opportunities around the world and our passion for living well out-of-doors, we are able to provide a completely unique experience in Montana.

Imagine a five-course meal under the Montana sky prepared by your own private chef, with 'tent' accommodations as comfortable as any fine hotel. All of our Glamping excursions are bespoke to each guest's wishes. We do not have fixed locations, each night of Glamping is set up and catered specifically for each guest. We host our nights on both private ranches and on public lands- regardless, we guarantee an evening that will not be forgotten in a location second to none. 

Prices are dependent upon location and desires of our guests, but generally range from $450 per person, per night. This is a perfect opportunity for those seeking something completely different, and very special.

Rental cars with superior service for Big Sky, Yellowstone, and Bozeman BZN

New West Experience is partnered with Phasmid Rentals, a superior off-airport rental car agency providing four wheel drive rental vehicles ideally suited for Montana adventures. New West is able to book Phasmid cars directly, and is able to incorporate discounted rates into all of our packages. Phasmid provides rental cars for Bozeman Gallatin Field airport, BZN.

Through New West and Phasmid we are able to offer two types of vehicles in two different classes. Chevrolet Suburbans (Big) and Subaru Outbacks (not-so-big). New ones, or slightly used ones. All of Phasmid's rental vehicles are impeccably maintained, immaculate, and contain Montana emergency kits (first aid kits, breakdown kits, tools, etc.)- all of the things that you likely carry in your own vehicle that no other rental company provides.

Prices vary depending on availability and time of year, but generally speaking Phasmid is less expensive than the Big Box companies at the airport- and always provides superior service.

+  Subaru Outback "Roadwarriors" (pre-loved ones) around $50/ day

+  2010-12 Subaru Outbacks around $75/ day

+  Older style Chevrolet Suburbans (2003-2007) around $85/ day

+  Newer Chevrolet Suburbans (2009-12) around $120/ day

Some of the benefits that we have found with Phasmid Rentals:

+  No nickle-and-dime treatment. They do not sell you anything you do not need, and treat customers like people and not numbers

+  Guests never have to wait in line. Phasmid picks up all guests at the baggage claim at BZN, and shuttles them back to office (1.5 miles away) in their rental car

+  Unlimited mileage, no-charge for additional drivers, and 24-hour roadside assistance always included

Visit the Phasmid Rentals website, or call New West to arrange a far superior rental car experience.

Fly-fishing in Montana and Yellowstone National Park is certainly on any serious angler's bucket list. Wild trout abound in our seemingly endless waterways, coupled with liberal water access laws, offer the angler unparalleled opportunities. New West Experience is able to assist anglers interested in staying at elite fly fishing specific lodges, booking daily guided trips through our network of experienced professionals, or in the planning of do-it-yourself fly fishing adventures.

New West Experience owner, Will Casella, has spent over 10-years working at elite fly fishing lodges around the world- and has come back to live in Montana for one main reason- the fishing is that good. There are of course the classic rivers; the Madison, Big Hole, Big Horn, Beaverhead, Jefferson, Yellowstone, Missouri, and the Gallatin that produce memorable days. However, more often than not, the best angling days and Montana experience come from the not so famous rivers and lakes- the places nobody is willing to talk about- and that is where New West will get you. 

At New West, we all fish, and we keep a finger on the pulse of what is going on around the state. Although there are likely more wild trout in the state of Montana than pretty much anywhere else in the world, they can still be moody especially on the larger more famous waterways. We have found that the best way to fish Montana is to be flexible and mobile. Rather than staying at a lodge and getting locked into a waterway for your stay, we encourage anglers to move to where the fish are eating.

The main difference when planning a trip with New West versus many of the outfitters or a lodges is that we truly emphasize quality of experience. If a bumper-to-bumper float trip down the Madison drifting indicator rigs is what you want- we are not the company for you. If enjoying spectacular scenery in the company of good friends (or alone), and maybe catching a fish or two is what you seek- then we can help you out.

Because your time is valuable. 

New West Experience understands your time in Montana should be spent enjoying Montana- and not doing the dirty work. Our Concierge Services are able to assist in a variety of different ways to ensure your vacation time is spent on the mountain or in the rivers versus at the store or doing dishes. We utilize our extensive network trusted service providers, and will always stand behind the quality of services provided by our professionals. If you are unhappy with provided services New West will resolve the problem to your satisfaction.

Examples of concierge services:

+  Advance wine and liquor purchasing. We work with the premier store in Montana and are able to arrange your order to either be waiting in your rental car on arrival, at your accommodations, or for store pick-up.

+  Advance food purchasing. Show up to a full fridge, or have the groceries packed in your rental car.

+  On-site personal chef.

+  On-site massage.

+  House cleaning/ laundry services.

+  Errands and delivery.

+  Just about any task you can think of- we are here to help.

Fees for our services vary per task, please inquire for specific pricing.

We understand that time is often more important than money, and therefore are able to assist in every aspect of your experience from the moment you step off of the airplane until you depart.

New West Experience

Explore Montana, Yellowstone, and the Northern Rockies with a company that understands.

Few visitors who come to the Northern Rockies and Montana realize how vast the distances are in between destinations, and more importantly that the travel involved- when on the right roads- is some of the most spectacular scenery around. If you really want to experience this area, the only way is to hire a rental car and drive. There are tour-bus options, but unless you like being on 15+ other people's schedule, this really is not a pleasant way to see the area. One needs to slow down, get off the highway, and explore the road less taken. The unique small towns in Montana and the adjacent states will all become memorable experiences. Cresting a mountain pass and overlooking a vista of literally thousands of square miles- without another tourist in sight- is something you will never forget. The silence and serenity of such vastness is why one should come to Montana- and New West Experience is able to provide.

New West Experience is one of the few businesses in Montana that understand the concept of the fly-drive/ self-drive holiday.  Our services are able to provide a complete bespoke Northern Rockies tour for you. We try to emphasize the quality of each experience and minimize the amount of time on the road. Many foreign based companies simply do not have the knowledge of the area to plan a memorable trip. Travel distances too grand for the resulting experience, driving only on major interstates and missing the unique small towns, providing an inadequate/ unsafe vehicle for our driving conditions, etc. We exist to eliminate the risk.

All of our team has either lived or at least traveled extensively outside of the US. As a result, we understand cultural and linguistic differences and what makes this area so very special to non-US natives. To date, we have had guests from UK, Spain, Argentina, Sweden, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, and China- and we welcome more. Let our experience and knowledge guide you.

Montana and Yellowstone National park are perfect locations for the serious birder. Just outside of Bozeman, experience one of the largest raptor migrations in the world. Witness droves of migratory waterfowl in the fall, or a bald eagle scooping a cutthroat trout out of a recently thawed lake in the spring. New West is here to help point you in the right direction.

There are numerous excellent resources for providing formalized birding tours in the area ranging from Montana Audubon to small, private companies/ individuals. Although we are happy to recommend and organize formalized trips, we also encourage our guests to simply get outside with their binos and enjoy. Montana boasts incredible concentrations of raptors and migratories- all set with a backdrop second to none.
