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.

 

Whoop it up with a Montana rodeo short-break

Summer in Montana is rodeo time. Mid-June kicks off the season with some of the smaller town events and the season (and ticket winnings) increase as the summer progresses. For all of you city-dwellers out there, a Montana rodeo is an experience not to be missed; and a wonderful excuse to get out of dodge for a weekend.

New West Experience will do the leg work for you depending on the time of your available travel. We will sort out which rodeo to go to and will provide everything you need to enjoy Montana like a local. Cheap beer and parade hot dogs not included.

Package includes:

  • 1- night at the Silver Forest Inn, best room available. 
  • 3- day rental of a Subaru Outback
  • 2- night rental of our 'car camping' package. Everything you need to pitch tent at a festival without having to worry about driving anywhere.

Total Price: $500 for two people, $750 for four.

 

Camping in Montana- comfortably!

The best way to truly experience Montana and Yellowstone National Park is to sleep under the stars. Perfect summer nights and countless public campsites and back country opportunities abound. New West, through our partner company Phasmid Rentals, is able to provide assistance and rental gear for inexperience car camper to the die-hard backpackers.

Phasmid provides everything you need for a Montana camping adventure. Tents, sleeping bags, pads, cots, camp furniture, cooking kits, coolers, optics, guidebooks, maps, and fly-fishing equipment (Simms waders and boots, Outcast float tubes, etc). Phasmid is also the sole provider of rental bear spray in the Bozeman area.

New West Experience is able to incorporate Phasmid's services and rental gear into all of our prepared itineraries and packages.

Millions of acres of public land, Yellowstone and Glacier National Park, crystal clear rivers teeming with wild-trout, unspoiled open spaces, towering mountains offering endless exploration opportunity, abundant wildlife, unique small towns, wonderful history, working rural Americana culture, and endless scenically beautiful areas  to explore at your own place- this is Montana and the New West Experience.

Founder Will Casella has worked extensively in the international tourism industry for over 10-years, having gained experience in areas ranging as far as managing destination fly-fishing lodges in Russia, guiding river trips in Mongolia, to owning rental cars and creating self-drive adventures for travelers in New Zealand. In 2009, Will returned to visit the US having been abroad for nearly 10-years, and fell head-over-heels in love with the state of Montana. Having traveled and explored the world extensively, he identified Bozeman as being the best on earth to live and in 2010 he finally unpacked his bags and began call Bozeman home.

Summer of 2010 saw the first step in New West Experience, and that was the launch of Phasmid Rentals, an independent car rental agency specializing in the planning and execution of Montana fly-fishing self-drive tours. Phasmid started as a small pet-project to his other businesses catering to international fly-fishing tourism and soon grew into a rapidly growing business assisting visitors to the Big Sky, Bozeman, and Yellowstone areas. 

Autumn of 2011 saw the first expansion of services with the addition of the Silver Forest Inn, a historically listed bed and breakfast located at the base of Bridger Bowl Ski area. The Inn was identified as being an ideal location to provide a true Montana experience for visitors offering an unparalleled location, unique building, and fantastic setting.

In the spring of 2012, New West Experience was born with the goal of sharing the fantastic natural surroundings and unique locally owned businesses in Montana with visitors of the Bozeman, Big Sky, and Yellowstone area. Through the operation of Phasmid Rentals, Will noticed a common trend of visitors not having knowledge of the best places to stay, dine, and explore and decided as a personal mission to assist future guests in getting the most out of their Montana Experience. Montana and the Yellowstone areas are filled with endless opportunities to explore, and the best can only be experienced with the support of local assistance.

NWE strives to provide and share experiences that are memorable, unique, and truly Montana. From the moment our guests step off of the airplane to the time they depart, they have the support of New West. All of our Montana/ Yellowstone fly-drive adventures are catered specifically to each guest's desires and budget. We do not offer group tours, we offer individual experiences; whether it is staying at multiple fly-fishing lodges during a one week stay, or exploring the small towns and camping in National Parks over a month. We are passionate about exploring Montana and Yellowstone ourselves, and share all of our best experiences with our guests.

If you are exploring the options of coming to Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park we encourage you to give us a call. We promise to reduce your travel planning hassle and provide more Experience than any other travel agency around- whatever your level of adventure is you may desire.

Driving from Destination A to Destination B is much more than just time in the car when you are in Montana. Unique small towns abound, all surrounded by stunning landscape and incomparable wildlife. Scenic driving in Montana is major part of the Experience out here. Distances are grand and seemingly each bend in the road will reveal a vista more beautiful then the last.

We get this. One of our favourite things to do ourselves is to hop in the car, pick a direction and drive. One will never be let down with monotony in Montana, and many of the best sites and experiences you will have will happen in the car. This being said, if you want to see Montana you have to drive. There is simply no good public transportation. Our partner, Phasmid Rentals, is able to provide rental vehicles and touring gear for your Montana road trip. Combined with New West's planning services we are able to get you the road trip of a lifetime.

Whether you enjoy the Beartooth Highway, Yellowstone Park, the unique small towns, or the endless gravel roads we are able to get you there and back- in style.
